Eau Claire Youth Hockey is once again offering postseason ice for all players in our association. As an association, our goal is to offer cost-effective, additional ice times that focus on player growth and skill development. These ice times are designed for skill improvement and offer our players a chance to stay on the ice before the Kohlman Cup, Central District, Team Wisconsin, and AAA team tryouts.

The practices will be a combination of skills, small area games, full ice scrimmage situations. The goal of these sessions is to push players out of their comfort zone and have an up-tempo practice.  

Each player is required to adhere to the same set of expectations and rules that are followed throughout the regular ECYH season. Behavioral issues on the ice and in the locker room will not be tolerated. If issues arise, the offending player will be asked to leave.

Players should register for the level they will be playing at next season

Covid Update (as of 4.14.2021)


  • 15 minutes before the scheduled ice time, and as long as a supervising adult for the group is present, the entry doors will be unlocked, and the arriving group may enter.  Doors will be locked 15 minutes after the start of the ice time.  Late arrivals after the doors are locked will be let in by the Hobbs lobby attendant.
  • Contracting tracing must be filled out by everyone who is entering Hobbs. Players, Coaches, Spectators, and Refs 


  • Four locker rooms will be available for all scheduled ice times, with assigned locker rooms alternating between the Akervik & Hughes rinks for each ice time.
  • To ensure physical distancing, a maximum of 8 people are allowed in each locker room. 
  • Additional chairs will still be available around the perimeter of each rink for use if desired.
  • Showers in the O’Brien locker rooms are not available for use.
  • Locker rooms will be cleaned immediately after each use.  Please help us keep the facility clean by making sure all trash goes into the garbage cans.


  • Spectators will be permitted to enter with their skaters normally done at this time of year for Hobbs skating groups.  Leaving and re-entering is not permitted.
  • Children must be with a supervising adult at all times and cannot be left to roam the facility unattended. 
  • Please stay out of areas marked as closed and maintain physical distancing from others while in the facility.
  • Please leave the facility as quickly as possible after the ice time to allow Hobbs staff to clean spectator areas before the next group’s arrival.
  • Lingering in the lobby is not permitted at this time.  The intention is for groups to enter, skate, and then leave.  This is very similar to normal use at this time of year anyway.

Player Benches/On-Ice

  • Please continue to observe physical distancing whenever possible outside of the field of play.
  • Practices/drills should be modified to ensure no more than 15 cumulative minutes of incidental close contact between participants.
  • Immediately at the scheduled end of each ice time, Hobbs staff will clean the player benches while skaters/coaches are cleaning up equipment on the ice. 
  • Please make sure your group is off the ice quickly so that the next group’s ice-time is not delayed.

Water/Vending Machines

  • Drinking fountains are still not available for use; please continue to bring your own water.
  • Vending machines are available in the lobby.  Touch surfaces of these items will be cleaned during each ice time while groups are on the ice.
  • Do not share water bottles; individuals should each have their own water bottle.
