Dear Louisville Ice Cardinal (LIC) Parents,

Welcome to the 2019/2020 hockey season! KAIHA & Louisville Ice Cardinals are starting their 6th season as a hockey association within Louisville. Our teams have experienced both success on and off the ice- with league and tournament championships, new friendships and volunteering as a group and giving back to our community.  Our overall numbers continue to grow, especially in our youngest age groups. KAIHA is also excited to have secured its fourth straight Roger Sharrer award through USA Mid Am hockey. Funds from this award will go towards growing hockey in Louisville. Heck, we even have a new spirit wear provider! Shop away and show your fandom @ The future looks bright for the red, white and black! 

Also, KAIHA formed a partnership with the Nashville Predators to establish Lil Preds in the Louisville market. Wow. Our two-year partnership has been a huge success, selling out each of its programs! You can find more info at

KAIHA continues to maintain 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. Please take the time to review our bylaws, rules & regulations @ association allows us to be a better organized group striving to grow the game of ice hockey, in a safe environment, 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 website,, sports engine app, association insurance, USA Hockey required coaching certifications for all coaches, all 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, 8U, Travel 8U, Travel 10U, Travel 12U, Travel 14U, Travel 16U, Travel 18U, Louisville Metro High School JV and Varsity teams -we are requiring a nominal fee of $25/per player that will be required to be paid during the new online registration found at the below link and on the home page of the website:

As part of the KAIHA online registration process, you will be required to pre-register your player with USA Hockey for the 2019/2020 season before completing your KAIHA registration.

 The following link will take you to USA Hockey’s 2019/2020 registration page. Save your new 2019/2020 USA Hockey confirmation number as you will be asked for this during the KAIHA registration process.

 Secondly, you will be asked to sign up or reaffirm for a Sports Engine (manager of our 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 onlybe 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 midnight on Wednesday, August 21st for roster submission to USA Hockey!

Have a great 2019/2020 hockey season!
