2019-2020 Season Information

Hockey season is almost here! A few things after you register:


Training Camp: Our Training Camp practices will begin the week of September 3rd - 7th . This is a pre-evaluation practice to get the kids back on the ice before evaluations begin. Each division will have two training camp practices. Please note each division will have a practice during the week and on Saturday, September 7th for the training camp!

Declaration games are scheduled for September 27th - 29th (Squirt-Bantam) and October 4th-6th (8U). These games are to determine that each team is playing in the correct level.

If this is your first season, please note that players must be in full gear for practices. Please also refer to the screen in the front lobby for locker room assignments.


Squirt - High School: If you did not have a chance to come to our last jersey fitting, we will have one more on September 7th from 3:00 - 6:00 pm at the rink to get sized and place your order, if needed (for first year squirts, new players, or if your player has outgrown their jersey). We will be using the same jerseys as last year. Since these items are customized, we can not accept returns or exchanges. If you are new and still need to request a number, please contact Dawn Fortner at

8U: 8U jerseys and socks are included in the registration fee, however we recommend still getting fitted to ensure the correct size. If you do not attend a jersey fitting, we will order based on the size you selected during registration. 

Public Skate Sessions:

Every Jr Mavs player will be able to attend public skates at the Centerpoint Community Ice FREE for the entire season. Players must wear their Jr. Mavs jersey and check in at the Pro Shop to receive their discount. Have fun on the ice!

If you have any questions, please contact Ben Fortner at or Dawn Fortner at See you at the rink!
