Practices will be held at the Pensacola Bay Center starting in October and continuing through March. Practices are usually held twice a week with the possibility of occasional weekend ice time. However, the practice schedule is subject to the ice availability at the Pensacola Bay Center. Practices consist of skills, drills and scrimmage games.
House teams consist of 12-15 skaters and a goalie. House teams plan to attend two tournaments per year within the Southeast region when available at the 6U level. Each tournament typically includes four competitive games. The tournament fees are in addition to registration and are determined by the cost of the tournament and the number of players attending. Friendly weekend games with other organizations may also be scheduled throughout the season. Evaluations for Travel (10U+) and Tournament teams (10U+) are held in the spring.
The 2022-2023 season fees are $700 for house team players. This includes NFHL membership fees and ice fees for approximately 35-40 practices. A Pensacola Jr. Ice Flyers jersey with socks is available for purchase for $55 during registration. Season fees can be paid in full at the time of registration or through a payment plan. Payment plan payments are due on the 1st of each month. After the initial payment, any monthly installment not paid by the 10th of the month will be assessed a $25 late fee. Players will be restricted from ice time until the account is current.
The primary objective for the 6U program is to develop the players skating ability and comfort level while carrying the puck.
