 2022-2023 Beginning Hockey Program

Maine Evolution Youth Hockey Association is proud to offer Beginning Hockey Programs.

Winter Break the Ice

Generally practices will be on:

Wednesdays 5-6pp

Break the ICE (BTI) is for athletes that are interested in trying hockey but aren't sure if they are going to love it to continue the full season. This is a 10 sessions program  Tuition: $100.

Those that have participated in a previous Maine Evolution season need to register in our 6U or Initiation program. BTI Players will have the opportunity to transfer into the 6U season if they are ice ready. (Tuition is pro-rated- "Upgrade")


6U is our youngest division for youth that want to play a full season.  There are two practices a week.  One weekday (tentative Wed. 5pm) and Saturday at 10:20 am.  They will also play half ice games against other organizations starting in January,  Tuition is $425.


Initiation: Players 7 years old or older that would like to start to play hockey are required to go through our beginning hockey program called Initiation, before being able to play on an official team which provides a season of instructional hockey. The goal is for these players to get them skating at the level of their peers by the end of the season. Tuition is $425.
