Open to all ages unless otherwise indicated as below.

12 and Under Stick-time is designated only for participants that are 12 years of age and younger.

(REGISTRATION CLOSED) Jr. Americans Youth Hockey Program (JAYHP)
By incorporating USA Hockey’s American Development Model (ADM), we can raise the level of creativity among players, increase player participation, and create a positive environment for kids to play, love and excel. The Jr. Americans Youth Hockey Program provides players an age-appropriate environment in which they can reach their potential and most importantly have FUN. On- and off-the-ice practice sessions will be structured, utilizing USA Hockey guidelines, with a high expectation for fair play and sportsmanship. All Mite (8U) games will be played in the Dallas Stars Youth Hockey League (DSYHL) while Squirt (10U), Peewee (12U) and Bantam (14U) games will be played in the Dallas Stars Metro Hockey League (DSMHL). Both the DSYHL and DSMHL formats will include leveling games and a tiered schedule ensuring Jr. Americans teams will play comparably skilled teams throughout the season and playoffs.
