USA Hockey is the governing body for amateur hockey in the United States. They supply the basic rules, format, and supplemental insurance for rinks, players, and officials. This also helps us keep costs lower by not having to track down everyone's individual insurance cards. All area rinks require USA Hockey registrations for their liability as well.

You can either join the rec league by registering as part of a team or look at our schedule of evaluation skates at the start of each season (Sept, Jan and May). If you would like to join once the season has started, please contact us and we’ll work to place you on an appropriate team. Click here for more detail and registration links.

New players will pay the fixed new player fee, and the amount paid will be applied to the team you join. If you are on a team, the captain will work out how much each player is charged.

Kraken Hockey League games will be played at several rinks across the region. We will work with team captains to try to accommodate location preferences for teams and games as best we can.

DASH filters visibility of programs by age of a particular person. If you are unable to find a specific program while in DASH, make sure the "person you are enrolling" is set to the right person. 

I.e. - if you are enrolling an 8yr old, and that person is selected as the "person you are enrolling", you will only see programs available for 8yr olds. If you are looking for a different program for a sibling, you will need to add that sibling as a new participant first before enrolling him/her in a program for a different age group. 

You can sign up for all programs offered at Kraken Community Iceplex via DASH.

Only the NHL Learn to Play 1 class uses the NHL registration system. If you sign up for this program, we still require you to set up a DASH account in order to sign KCI specific waivers for your player.
