Program Description

TRAVEL HOCKEY

Travel hockey is the most competitive level of hockey offered by the Kenosha Jr. Komets at the Tier 2 level.   Our travel teams play in the CUHL or other age and skill appropriate leagues.

Travel team players are those looking to move beyond house league and for more competitive hockey and progressive skill development.  Players are selected during a tryout process held before the start of the hockey season (mid-late August).  Teams practice 2 - 3 times per week and play in 1 - 2 games per weekend. The season runs from September – March. 

CHICAGO UNITED HOCKEY LEAGUE (CUHL)

The Chicago United Hockey League (CUHL) offers a full season of full-ice hockey for 8U players beginning in September and concluding with round robin playoffs in March.  The league is affiliated with the Amateur Athletic Union (AAU) and AAU Hockey Illinois. 

Boundaries

The Kenosha Jr. Komets can accept skaters from the following areas:

  • ILLINOIS:  ANY resident from ANY community in Illinois.
  • WISCONSIN:  ANY resident of Kenosha, Racine or Walworth Counties.

(Wisconsin residents from other counties may still be eligible but are subject to WAHA & USA Hockey rules that govern out-of-district skaters. Contact the Komets for more details.)

AAU Hockey Requirements

Every player must have a valid AAU membership to register for the 2024-2025 Regular Season.  However, AAU does not open their registration for the fall season until September 1.  Please do NOT purchase a new AAU membership until September 1 as any memberships purchased prior to that date expires on August 31.  You will receive an email from the Kenosha Jr. Komets letting you know that AAU registration for the 2024-2025 season has opened. 

If your player is coming up from Devos, they already have a USA Hockey membership number which does not expire until August 31.  That will cover your player's insurance until you can obtain a current AAU membership number on September 1.   

If your player has an AAU membership from last season, you will be asked to enter their number in the registration form below.  If this is your child's first season playing on the Kenosha Jr. Komets, you will be asked to enter their USA Hockey number instead.  You must enter one or the other to be able to register.

NON-REFUNDABLE DEPOSIT

A non-refundable tryout fee of $350 is required to register all skaters (this does not apply to Development or Ignition skaters).  Once tryouts for travel teams have concluded and my player has been placed on a team roster, my player is committed to playing for the Jr. Komets, regardless of team designation (ex. Mites A, Mites B, etc.).  Should I withdraw my player from the Jr. Komets after rosters are announced but before practices have begun, I will be liable for the $350 non-refundable tryout fee. If my player is not placed on a team, a full refund (including the tryout fee) will be issued to me within two weeks of tryouts.  

Mandatory Parents Meeting

We will kick off the new season with an all-club, mandatory parent’s meeting!

We will offer two dates for the meeting:  August 19 at 6:00 pm and August 31 at 10:00 am.  Groups will be split into age groups.  The meetings will take place at the Kenosha Ice Arena.  If for some reason you are not able to attend the one assigned to your child's age group, please plan to attend the other date.

Topics covered will include code of conduct, volunteer hours commitment, information on tryouts, details of the team selection process, fundraising opportunities, Club Wide Raffle Ticket Fundraiser, and other events.  The Jr. Kenosha Komets is a volunteer organization and we are dependent upon the commitment of our volunteers and support of our fundraising opportunities.  This includes team raffles as well as our keynote, organization-wide raffle fundraising event that takes place during our fall season and awarded at our annual awards banquet.  More details will be shared further in the registration under fundraising.
