Scholarships available - every effort is made to accommodate any family whose skater is dedicated to learning the game of hockey. Please contact our president, Patrick Kutzer, for more information.
Open to kids of many athletic abilities - the Titans field travel teams at the C level this year. There's a good chance that any kid who loves hockey can play with us. As we continue to grow, we will look to field teams at the A level.
10U/12U Teams-Our girls teams co-op with other District 1 teams. You can register through the Titans website for either team. Our girls can option to play with just the co-op team or with both the co-op and coed teams.
Tryouts – tryouts are held only for the squirt and peewee age groups and for levels that have enough kids for multiple teams. Generally, this has been at the squirt level (ages 9-10). Kids under the age of 9 do not have any tryouts.
Season - practices begin in late September/early October. Game play for travel teams begins typically in November/December and ends in late February.
Where do we skate? - Our main arenas are Northeast Ice Arena and Augsburg Ice Arena in Minneapolis. We skate outdoors at Minneapolis parks when weather permits. Road games can be across the metro area, and tournaments can be across Minnesota and Wisconsin.
How often do we skate? – mini mites (ages 4-6) can expect 1-2 times a week, mites (7-8) can expect 2-3 times a week, 10U/squirts (9-10) can expect 3-4 times a week, and 12U/peewees (11-12) can expect 4+ times a week. This can vary from week to week, and the weather can affect how much outdoor ice we have.
