YOUTH HOCKEY PROGRAMMING
Knoxville Amateur Hockey Association is the official youth hockey association for Cool Sports and our Youth Hockey programming. We offer leagues, programs and clinics for ages 4, all the way through age 18. Browse through the options below for more information about each specific program. If you need more information, contact Hockey Director Mike Craigen at email@example.com.
YOUTH HOCKEY LEAGUES
Hockey develops life skills that build a foundation for a child’s confidence, pride, focus and responsibility. Starting with the bonds created in the locker room to the relationships formed on the ice, hockey creates friendships that last a lifetime. Hockey’s unique structure ensures that your child learns to love the game while promoting a healthy lifestyle, social wellness and mental well-being. The encouraging environment hockey provides helps kids grow as both hockey players and people.

KNOXVILLE JR. ICE BEARS
Cool Sports and KAHA offer a Select Program for our Rec League families who want to experience hockey outside of Knoxville, but don’t want the financial or time commitment of the full travel program.
The goal of our Select program is to provide additional opportunities for house/rec league players but not too force large financial or time commitments onto families.
Enjoy house league but want a little more? Select Hockey is for you.
