Learn To Play Hockey Registration

Welcome to HIP (Hockey Initiation Program) at DPYH!

HIP is a great way to learn to play hockey.  If you child can walk on skates, they can join the HIP program.  We focus on making them comfortable on the ice wearing their equipment, basic hockey moves, and just having fun!  Children as young as 4 years old can sign up, although we do have kids as old as 8 or 9 that have started with HIP because their friends told them hockey was fun and moved up to a higher level as they progressed durning the season.  It's all about the individual child and their skill level.

Our FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions) page link is below if you want to check out our most asked about questions.  Otherwise, our contact information is at the bottom of this page if you want to give us a call or shoot us an email.  We are glad to help!



Fees for the 2018-2019 season will be FREE this season!  We are trying to make it easy to try hockey, so tell your friends to come and try hockey with De Pere Youth Hockey!

If you want to rent equipment, we are asking for a post-dated check for $100 that you will receive back at the end of the season when you return they equipment.  If you have your own equipment, no need to make a deposit fee.



HIP for 2018-19 will be practicing on Sundays, from 9:00-9:50am, starting on November 11th, 2018 and ending February 24th, 2019.  No practice on 12/23 & 12/30.

HIP practices will be posted on our website calendar.  Please reference the calendar throughout the season for any schedule updates.  You can download the schedule to your phone or calendar by following the directions on the calendar page.  That way it is always up to date!

Don't worry if the season is already started, you can always register and attend at any time!
