Dear Louisville Ice Cardinal (LIC) Parents,

Welcome to the 2016/2017 hockey season! As many of you know, KAIHA & Louisville Ice Cardinals are starting their 3rd season as a hockey association within Louisville. Our teams have experienced success on the ice with multiple league and tournament championships. Plus, many off ice success stories, such as new friendships and volunteering as a group and giving back to our community.  Our overall numbers continue to grow each year with our youngest groups having the most ever participants for the upcoming 2016/2017 season.  We have successfully maintained Kentucky Amateur Ice Hockey Association (KAIHA) as a true 501C3 with the Louisville Ice Cardinals Hockey Club playing underneath the guidance, bylaws, rules & regulations of KAIHA. This three-year-old association allows us to be a better-organized group in the growth of ice hockey, in and around the greater Louisville area.

Within our association, we have some financial responsibilities that must be paid for by our membership. Things like our new website,, sports engine app, association insurance, USA Hockey required coaching certifications, coaches/managers background screens, 501C3 tax filings, practice equipment and other related board/ association expenses.

If your child plays hockey under one of the following KAIHA/LIC association teams:

House, Mites, Travel Mites, Travel Squirts, Travel Peewees, multiple Travel Bantam teams, Travel U16, JCPS High School or Oldham County High School we are requiring a nominal fee of $25/per player that will be required to be paid during the new online registration found @ or under the KAIHA tab on the website.

As part of the KAIHA online registration process, you will be required to pre-register your player with USA Hockey for 2016/2017 season before completing your KAIHA registration. The following link will take you to USA Hockey’s 2016/2017 registration page. Save your new 2016/2017 USA Hockey confirmation number as you will be asked for this during the KAIHA registration process. Secondly, you will be asked to sign up for a Sports Engine (manager of website) account prior to getting into our registration form. This will allow for ease of use in future registrations and allow for dynamic communication between you and your team via the app and website. Finally, during the KAIHA registration process, we will be asking for basic medical information such as health insurance, preferred doctor and such for your player. We hope to never need this information but want to be prepared for both you and your child in any event.

In conclusion, we will also be gathering basic personal information regarding you and your child during your KAIHA registration; this information will only be used for better internal communication between the KAIHA board and its association members.

All TRAVEL teams must have ALL rostered players registered with KAIHA by no later than Friday August 21th for roster submission to USA Hockey!

Have a great 2016/2017 hockey season!

KAIHA Board of Directors
