The 8U Travel hockey program is a progression from the 8U House program. The 8U Travel teams are formed based upon the player's skill level and coaching staff recommendations. Players in the 8U Travel program will travel to play in small group games, called Jamborees, within the Buckeye Travel Hockey League (BTHL).The BTHL has member associations located in the states of Kentucky, Indiana, Ohio and West Virginia.
Players will practice 2 times per week and games are scheduled on Saturdays and Sundays. The cost of the program last season was $500.00 (payable to Iceland Sports Complex) with an additional fee (payable to KAIHA) to cover the travel uniform, additional ice costs and league fees.
In addition to registering to play with Iceland Sports Complex, players will register with USA Hockey and the local ice association, KAIHA.
After the player ages out of the 8U Travel program, players are encouraged to tryout for a position on a 10U Travel team. Another team option includes playing in the 10U-12U House program.
