The 8U program is the natural progression after the 6U program. Our regular hockey program season for the 8U age groups starting in Late August and concluding in February. Practices follow USA Hockey's American Development Model (ADM) and incorporate small groups in a station based format. The 8U program is a development based program with a focus on skating and skill but with an emphasis in exposing the players to the game; again in a relaxed environment.By developing these skills you increase the athlete's enjoyment and proficiency in the game of hockey.
For the 8U age group, all games are conducted as Half-Ice (meaning from the Goalie crease to the Center Red line ), in accordance with the USA Hockey standards for this age group. This small area game focus gives players greater ability to participate in small area stick handling situations while emphasizing on skating edge work.

Additional details regarding evaluations will be sent to all registrants posted on this webpage prior to the start of evaluations. In the mean time, make sure the kids have a black practice jersey & a white practice jersey. They will need both for Pre-Skates & Evaluations.

It will open up a new webpage window. Return to this page to complete registration once you have created your new User Name and Password.
Note: If you have already created a User Name and Password on the MaryvilleUHC.com website or PacificIceRink.com website; you can skip this step. Just use that same User Name and Password in Step 2 (we're using the same vendor for both sites - so your user name and password will work on both sites.) You can also skip this step if you have already logged into the ChesterfieldHockey.com website.
- Add a Spouse: Don't forget to associate a spouse with children under your account. If you haven't already, here are the simple steps to complete that process. This is necessary for you both to be able to utilize the CrossBar mobile app once the season starts. Learn how!
