We welcome players with all levels of hockey experience. We have limited equipment available to outfit novices who want to try the sport before committing to it.

Potential members may attend their first practice at no cost

Please contact us for more details.

Clinics:

Depending on interest we ay offer Spring and Fall skills clinics that are open to all levels of experience. Clinics usually include brief review on skating technique, lots of puck handling, shooting, passing drills along with some positioning. They are ran by qualified Instructors, along with shooters for the goalies. Clinics are divided into two groups allowing the beginners more room to focus on the fundamentals and the more advanced skaters to focus their training on a variety of drills. Check our calendar for upcoming clinic dates.

Summer House League:

Consisting of 4 teams and skating June thru August at the Pettit National Ice Center we offer our Summer House League. All levels are welcome and encouraged to play. Teams are chosen with a mix of all skill levels on all teams to ensure fun for all. Summer is recreational and not highly competitive. It was created for the individual to work on their own skills within a game atmosphere, to try new things, to learn from others, to make new friends, and most of all just to have fun.

Competitive Travel Teams:

Currently we have 4 competitive senior level teams, known as the Brew City Blades, competing in the WCHL (Womens Central Hockey League) You may check out the league by clicking here. These teams have traveled throughout WI, IL, and MN and have participated in tournaments as far as Florida. Qualified coaching staff, scheduled practices, league and exhibition games, and weekend tournaments are part of the fun. Evaluations and try-outs are held annually at the end of the Summer House League season. If you are interested in learning more, view our calendar for evaluation dates, or contact us for details.

Rec Team:

Currently we have 1 in house rec team known as the Brew City Blades Rec.The games are held at Pettit National Ice Center on Sunday evenings around 4pm. We start late Oce and run thru Feb. If you are interested in learning more contact us for details.

  • Breezers (pants)
  • Elbow pads
  • Shoulder pads
  • Gloves
  • Helmet
  • Stick
  • Jersey

What to expect: 

Most players arrive about 30 minutes early. Some of us are slow dressers and some of us are big talkers- either way, we need the time! The locker room assignments at Pettit are listed on the wall on a clip board across from the skate rental downstairs or on the monitor in the front lobby. Other rinks are usually listed near the concession stand.

Cost:

As much as we all love hockey, we regret we must charge for this fun. The good news, though, if you are just trying us out your very first practice is FREE! After that, we must pay the bills…
