Try Hockey Boot Camp

The West Madison Polar Caps and USA Hockey are proud to host the 2014 Try Hockey Boot Camp!

The Boot Camp is a fun-filled crash-course for boys and girls that have never tried ice hockey, and are curious to see what the sport is all about.  The idea is to give families a chance to try ice hockey without making a huge commitment of time or money.  Kids will have access to free equipment rentals and will hit the ice for three, one hour "practices" to experience how much fun hockey can be!

The cost of the Boot Camp is $25, and that fee will be applied to the registration fee, should the skater sign up for one of the Polar Caps' regular season hockey programs. 

(For more information on the programs the club offers, and the age ranges of these programs, just click on the "Programs" tab on the left side of this page.)

Boot Camp ice times are:

September 27th at 10:00 am

October 4th at 10:00 am

October 11th at 10:00 am

All sessions will be held at the Madison Ice Arena, located at 725 Forward Drive on Madison's west side.

Participants should complete the online registration module below, and also bring a completed and signed waiver form with them to the first practice.

Please plan to arrive at the first practice by 9:30 for equipment fitting!

Beaver Dam 3 on 3 Tourney

The Beaver Dam Hockey Association is hosting a 3-on-3 tournament for Mites, Squirts, PeeWees and Bantams the weekend of September 26-28.

Check out the link below for more info.

The Wisconsin Whalers have reached out to our club in hopes of identifying billet families for players coming to Madison to play Tier 3 Junior hockey.

Below is a note from the Whalers' Housing Director, Deb Vesling:

I am the Housing Director for the Wisconsin Whalers Junior Hockey Team that is getting set to start their 2nd season in Madison. Their home ice is Hartmeyer Ice Arena. We are in desperate need of billet families to house players. Would you be able to get word out to your organization about our need to see if anyone would consider housing a player or two?  These are young men aged 16-21 who are devoted to their sport and will be very busy with daily practices and weekend games. They travel quite a bit too. Billet families are given a stipend of $290 per month per player to help defray the costs of feeding the players. We have a wonderful group of young men and we didn't have a single discipline problem last season. The team has very strict rules about behavior. I personally had 3 players live with my family and had a wonderful experience.

Please have families reach out to me, Deb Vesling, at 608-225-8509 or dvesling@yahoo.com. For more information about the team, go to www.WisconsinWhalers.com

Thanks in advance for your time and consideration.
