Welcome to U8 IceCats


If you are moving up from Mite Prep or starting new we want to welcome you to the Lakeville IceCats. Here is some basic information on the U8  program along with some frequently asked questions.

U8 is geared as both a learn to play program for first time players as well as a way to prepare the older players for the traveling levels.  The goal of U8s is to provide a fun experience focused on hockey fundamentals and small area games.

Ages: Most players are in grades 1-3 with some Kindergartners. 

Levels: All U8 players will participate in two evaluation sessions at the start of the season in order to sort players onto teams of similar skill levels.  The three levels will be Advanced, Intermediate and Beginner. Evaluations will be held on October 27th and November 3rd, 2019.

Ice time: 

Beginner - Practices will be held on Thursdays and Sundays during the season. 

Intermediate - Practices will typically be held on Tuesday evenings, Saturdays and Sundays during the season.

Advanced - Practices will be typically be held on Thursday evenings, Saturdays and Sundays during the season.

Season: 10/27/19 - 3/1/20

Coaches: We need as many coaches on the ice as possible to help out these players who are new to hockey. It is a pretty easy commitment as most of the practice plans are available for you. See the Coaches page for how to sign up.
