PROVO PREDATORS 6U AND 8U TEAMS
Ages: 4-8 years old
- 6U - Player's birth year is 2016 or 2017
- 8U - Player's birth year is 2014 or 2015
Players will be divided in to teams according to their age group 6U and 8U; if there are enough players to form more than one 6U or 8U team, those teams will be divided by equal skill level.
Registration Requirement: Players should complete Learn to Skate Level 2, and generally should have completed at least one Start Smart session.
Season: Early October 2022 through early March 2023. The 8U teams will be invited to an end-of-year Mite Madness Jamboree on 4 March 2023 at the Ogden Ice Sheet--this will mark the end of the season for our 6U and 8U teams.
Practices/Games: The 6U and 8U teams will share all practices together; one side of the ice will be for the 8U and the other for the 6U. There will be two 1-hour practices a week and there will be typically 8 Saturday jamborees during the season. A jamboree is an event including several cross-ice games for 6U and 8U teams. The ice is usually divided in to 3 cross-ice rinks, with 6U games in the middle section and 8U games on the end sections. Games last between 10-12 minutes, with a total of 3-5 games played for each team. Not all jamborees will take place at the Peaks. Usually half will be held at the Peaks and the rest will be played at other facilities, including the Utah Olympic Oval, Weber County Ice Sheet, Park City Ice Arena, and the Western Park Ice Rink in Vernal.
Jersey Numbers: If your player is new to the Provo Predators, your player will need a jersey number. Players may choose their jersey number within the following parameters: 1. If a player has an odd birth year, the player must choose an odd number (1 - 99) that has not yet been chosen by a player of their same birth year. 2. If a player has an even birth year, the player must choose an even number (00 - 98) that has not yet been chosen by a player of their same birth year. All jersey numbers must be approved by the Peak Youth Hockey Coordinator.
Registration: Registration for 6U and 8U teams is open now.
Step 1: Register your player with USA Hockey (use player's legal name and correct birthdate); your player's USA Hockey number is required when registering for their Provo Predators 6U or 8U team. Players need to re-register with USA Hockey every year; if your player played last year, do not submit your player's USA Hockey number from last year. The 2022-23 USA Hockey number should have a three (3) for the fourth digit - XXX3XXXXXLASTN (last 5 characters are part of your player's surname)
Step 2: Register your player for their age-appropriate team below:
