We are happy to announce the return of our 8U+ program for the 2019-20 season. This opportunity is only open to 2011 & 2012 birth year players.

MAY 28 & 29
5:45pm @WINGS WEST
COST: $50

As with last year, this program includes a weekly off-ice session with Athletic Mentors, and a weekly on-ice session with the KOHA Skills Staff. Additionally, our 8U+ teams will participate in cross-ice or half-ice games at Little Caesars Arena in Detroit throughout the season, AND our 8U+ participants are able to attend Athletic Mentors Open Gym times each week in addition to the skills night training (registration is required for open gym - details available once the season starts).

Once again, it is required that your player is registered with KOHA’s regular season 8U program for the 2019-20 season in order to participate in our 8U+ program (regular season registration will be open during tryouts).

By participating with KOHA’s 8U+ program, your player gets to:

  • stay local for all practices and training sessions
  • work on the ice with professional and college hockey players and coaches
  • participate in weekly off-ice training with Athletic Mentors PLUS the opportunity to sign up for additional open gym times (included as part of our 8U+ program)
  • play games at Little Caesars Arena throughout the season

Last season we had two 8U+ teams, and if there is enough interest we will consider fielding a third team. The cost of the program will be similar to last year, and we will have that information firmed up and available at tryouts during the parent meeting. In the meantime, if you have any questions, please email Dave Toth at
