The Freeze hockey program is a House “B” hockey program that plays games against other Hockey associations in the west Michigan area.   The Freeze program allows the player a level of hockey that brings more competition to the game.  In addition to games played at Howard, the Freeze program does include approximately 13 or more games that will be played out of town.  Possible regular opponents are from Holland, Kalamazoo, Lansing, Grand Rapids, Muskegon, Rockford, Big Rapids, Cadillac, Ludington and Muskegon.


The Freeze teams practice 1-2 evenings a week in South Bend, when the Howard Ice Rink opens in November they generally practice 2-3 evenings a week, and generally play 2 games a weekend, there are times that they play 3 games in a weekend.   The season runs from September to mid March. There will also be 2-3 out-of-town tournaments at times.


The Freeze program is open to Hockey Players within the Squirt, Peewee or Bantam age groups.  Squirt players are birth year 2004 and 2005.  Peewee players are birth year 2002 and 2003.  Bantam players are birth year 2000 and 2001.  As always, teams will be filled on a consecutive sign up basis (first come, first serve) with limited team sizes so please do not wait to sign up for Freeze Hockey.

Player fees for the Freeze will be collected in 3 installments.  The first installment is due at the time of sign up and will be $350 for each player regardless of age level.  The second and third payments will be collected on September 30th and November 30th for the balance, based on the following fee structure:

Bantam - $1,100
Peewee - $985
Squirt - $835
