The travel teams will participate in the Southern Youth Travel Hockey League in the A1/A2 (also known as B) league. This is a season-long commitment to attend practices as well as out-of-town practices & games. Evaluations for Travel are held in the spring. If you have just moved to the area, after evaluations have been held, and are interested in Travel please email; CIC@jriceflyers.com to make arrangements for an evaluation.
After evaluations have been completed, a private registration link will be sent out to rostered players.
We have Travel Teams from 10U - 16U when numbers allow.
Our season runs from October - March with Practices starting during the late summer.

Prior to October practices will be held at other rink locations according to availability and will require some weekend travel. (Pelham, Huntsville, Columbus or Lafayette are all possibilities)
Practices will be held at the Pensacola Bay Center and are usually 2 (60 min.) practices 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.
The practices prior to October that require travel will typically include 2 days of practice to include Saturday and Sunday. Practices will be approximately 3 hours each day depending on availability. There will be approximately 4 - 5 practice weekends prior to ice availability in October.
Travel teams play 5-6 weekends of 4 games per weekend. Typical travel weekends can be Nashville, Memphis, Alabama & Georgia depending on participating teams in each division.
