Kansas City Jr Mavs

Declaration Games

Declaration Games are played at the beginning of the season to make sure each team is playing in the correct level within their division:

  • Silver or Gold for Squirts, Peewees and Bantams
  • Red, White or Blue for U8's

Below is the schedule for the 2017-2018 declaration games, which will be held Sept 29th - Oct 1st for SQ, PW and BA and Oct 7th-9th for 8U. Once these games are played, the rest of the season schedule will be assembled. Thank you!

2017-2018 Select

House Select is a team designed for Squirt, Peewees and Bantams players looking for more competition than their House team, without the time and financial commitment of Travel Hockey. Select teams travel 3-4 weekends for the Midwest Hockey League. Teams are formed based on tryouts.


Squirt Division: October 3rd @ 6:00 - 7:00 pm
Peewee Division: October 3rd @ 7:10 - 8:10 pm
Bantam Division: October 3rd @ 8:20 - 9:20 pm

Look for 8U Select information to be posted soon.

2017-2018 Fall/Winter Season

Our directors have been working hard the last several months to make sure the Jr. Mavs program continues to improve and be successful. We are excited about new changes we have for this year! A few new things to note:

  • New Jr. Mavs Hockey Director - Please welcome Kyle Hood, KC Mavericks Assistant Coach, to our team. His experience as a professional hockey player and coach, as well as his knowledge of the game will be incredibly useful to our organization.
  • New Division Coordinators - We are very excited about some new faces you will see around the rink! Please welcome Matt Mclin and Matthew Uvodich to our coordinator team. Our division coordinators have extensive hockey backgrounds and knowledge and will be running all practices for their specific divisions.
  • Player Development Initiative - This new program will be ran by Chris Johnston and will highlight and address specific goals for each player.
  • New Practice Nights - Practice nights for 8U, 10U, and 12U will now be on Wednesday nights. 8U's second practice will be on Fridays. We hope this will free up some weeknights for our families will multiple players in the organization. (Please note - there could be slight variations to this schedule throughout the season due to previously scheduled events at the arena).

We are looking forward to a fun and exciting season! If you have any questions, please contact Ben Fortner at See you at the rink!
