Welcome to Moose Hockey

Moose Hockey offers FREE Learn to Play clinics throughout the year.  Keep an eye on the Learn to Play page at for future clinics (or “like” Moose Youth Hockey Association on Facebook for notifications).  

Moose Youth Hockey is available for boys and girls as young as four. Kids must live in and/or be in the Monticello or Maple Lake school districts.

·       We call our youngest level the 8u Level (formerly mites) or the Initiation Program (Pre-Kindergarten thru 3rd grade) levels.

·         Typically the 8u hockey season runs mid-October through early March. 

·        Most often our 8u practices are Saturday and Sunday mornings at the Moose Sherritt Ice Arena (at the Monticello Middle School) for an hour to an hour and a half. 

·         Registration for the hockey season typically opens in early August.

Equipment needed - To gear up for 8u hockey a skater will need a helmet, mouth guard, neck guard, shoulder pads, elbow pads, shin guards, hockey socks, breezers, skates and a stick.  Rental bags are available for the season at a minimal fee.  Contact our Equipment Manager, Eric Metso, for equipment rentals:

**Moose & RiverHawks Mite families - Our equipment partner, Dave's Sport Shop, in Maple Grove has Mite equipment packages being offered through for the 2022-2023 season.

This year, they will be offering a great package starting at $129.99.  This package includes a helmet, shoulder pads, elbow pads, breezers and shin guards.  Along with that, they offer discounts on:

  • Sticks starting at $20
  • Skates starting at $50
  • Bags starting at $35

You can go directly to the store, let them know you are looking to get the Moose Mite Equipment Package and your player will be fitted with new equipment to use over the next couple years.  Dave's has been a long standing partner with our association and they do a tremendous job.
