The 2021-2022 season will kick off in October with tryouts for Squirts, PeeWees and Bantams, and November for LTP, Mini Mites & Mites.  Please keep an eye on the calendar for specifics as we “tweak” the schedule over the next several weeks.   As a reminder our Learn to Play program is now called Mini Mites, this program will be geared towards kids 6 and under.  The minimum age requirement for registration into the Learn to Skate program is 4.  If you are requesting an exception please email us at 

Please register early to ensure that you continue to receive our emails!  Our email list is based off our registration list and we will discontinue using the 2020-2021 registration list and switch over to the 2021-2022 registration list in early November.

RLHA will continue to offer FREE registration to kids in the Learn to Skate and Mini Mites (birthdate in the 2015-2018 age range)!!!  Payment plans for all other levels are available at check out.   RLHA recognizes that hockey equipment (and sports in general) is expensive, but we want ALL kids who desire to play hockey - to play hockey!  If there is a financial burden that prohibits you from registering your son or daughter please contact us as we don't want anyone not to play. 

As always, RLHA has hockey equipment for kids in the LTP, Mini Mites & Mites program.  Please keep an eye on the calendar and your email for information on equipment hand-out.  We also have a limited supply of equipment available to Squirts, PeeWees and Bantams if needed.  Please email us if you need help acquiring equipment.

Hockey Truths!

Lots of kids play! Rice Lake is one of more than 90 youth hockey associations statewide. In Rice Lake alone there were more than 100 kids participating in hockey last year.

Girls can play too!  Currently Rice Lake has several girls that play on our youth teams.  Although we do not have a WIAA high school girls team, many move on to play for area girls co-op teams once they age out of the youth program.  Two of our Rice Lake girls even played for the State Champion girls team in 2016!

Hockey is exciting to play and watch! For both the players on the ice and parents in the stands, hockey games are fast and exciting!

Everybody is part of the action! Unlike some youth sports, there aren’t just a few kids in the key positions. In hockey everyone shares in the fun and action.  A youth hockey team generally fields (and needs) twice as many kids as a basketball team, and everybody plays!   That is huge!

Hockey is for all sizes!  You don’t have to be big to play hockey well. Whether you’re big or small, any player can contribute to the success of their team.

Hockey is a lifetime sport!  Men and women of all ages play in recreational hockey leagues for years and decades after leaving youth hockey.
