2023 Spring Position Camp

Coach Brendan Zehner with the Summer Hockey Co is pleased to offer another Spring Position Camp this April. The Spring Camp aims to help players be at their best for the travel team tryouts in the Spring.


The 8U & 10U age groups will have a lot of skill work designed into game type drills and situations. This way they can learn the basics of all positions and not limit themselves to one position at a young age.


The 12U and older age groups will have a lot of specific position work so that they can improve in the position that they play the most. In a team setting, it isn’t always easy to help individuals improve at their specific position. The purpose of this camp is to instill fundamentals and confidence heading into the spring tryouts.

Full camp details and registration can be found on the website at

KAIHA Statement on Non-Sanctioned USA Hockey Activities:

The KAIHA Board wants to share information with you regarding teams playing in non-sanctioned USA Hockey games and tournaments. If a USA Hockey registered player and/or team chooses to participate in an unsanctioned event/tournament, they must participate without any connection to USA Hockey and KAIHA. This means they cannot use their USA Hockey team roster, team name, team jerseys and colors or any other reference to the USA Hockey registered team and to KAIHA. Additionally, the USA Hockey medical and liability insurance is voided; therefore, the coaches and player families take on full responsibility for anything that may happen. It is important to note that the tournament may or may not have insurance coverage for teams and participants. Finally, both MidAm and KAIHA discourages teams from being involved in unsanctioned events, but they also recognize that all participants are free to make their own decisions and adjust to the current situation in the manner they determine is fit and appropriate.
