Hutch Hockey Camps

New! Year-round Ice in Hutchinson

The HHA board is happy to share that we will now offer year-round ice opportunities to our members. For 2022, there are three camp options – spring, summer, and fall – with approximately six weeks off between the sessions. The goal of year-round ice is to change our players' opportunity to grow and develop with local options at a cost-effective rate.

2022 HUTCHINSON HOCKEY CAMP DATES

  • Spring: March 14-April 29 (7 weeks) - CLOSED
  • Summer: June 13-30 and July 11-28 (6 weeks) - registration open now until 6/12
  • Pre-season: September 7-30 (4 weeks)

SUMMER CAMP: June 13-30 and July 11-28 (6 weeks)

Registration is now open. Early registration is encouraged. Registration closes on June 12. All participants must be in good standing with HHA.

Summer camp is 6 weeks! Get a great value, even if you need to miss a week (or two). By choosing a local camp, kids can skate with their friends – and you save time and gas money.

Cost: $300; Mites (ages 4 – grade 3): $200

Days: Monday, Wednesday, Thursday

  • Y1 Bantams / PeeWees (session 1) 8-9:10am
  • 12U / PeeWees (session 2) 9:25-10:35am

  • Mites 12:15-1pm

*PeeWees can choose the session that works best

Y2 Bantams will have the option to skate with HS Boys or during the first hour with Y1 Bantams. Matt Telecky will be contacting parents in the next couple weeks with more details.

Players are encouraged to register for the level that they are eligible to play for the 2022-2023 season. No exceptions will be made to 'play up'.

Note: the session breakdown varies from the PRCE brochure. Given the success we are seeing at the spring camp, we will follow a similar model and group kids by level.
