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. 

  • Mites, Squirts, Peewees & Bantams begin Monday, March 1.
  • High School begins on Thursday, March 4.
