BG Hockey School

BG Hockey School offers programming year-round through the Ice Arena.  Classes and clinics are designed to aid in strengthening skaters at varying skill levels from beginner hockey through Bantam. For skaters in need of basic skating skills and instruction, participating in the Learn to Skate program is recommended. Skaters may come from a variety of local youth hockey programs. Program content is based on USA Hockey youth curriculum, Learn to Skate USA, and developed from participant feedback and consulting local organizations on the need of their members.

The Bowling Green Youth Hockey Association is the local hockey organization offering teams from the IP (Instructional Program) age and skill level up through Bantam age and skill levels.  The organization offers House, Travel and All-Star teams.  The House season often runs October into February, while the Travel and All-Star seasons can start earlier and run later depending on the team and season.
