Welcome to New Mexico Youth Ice Hockey Family FUN

NMIce Families:

Due to current state guidelines and restriction NMIce has no choice other than to continue to be on pause. We are cancelling the auto-withdrawal for December payments and your November payment amount will be credited towards future ice time once we are able to get back on the ice with our teams. We will wait to give out refunds depending on what happens with the rest of the season. We are hoping to make up all missed on-ice opportunities by expanding the season past February or if possible any long weekends we would normally not have practices.

 Also, if you are looking for ice time check the Outpost website ( for opportunities to get your players back on the ice and training off ice that are within the state’s new guidelines.  Those Outpost opportunities are separate from NM Ice, but know that NM Ice is committed to getting our teams back on the ice together as soon as the rules allow.

Thank you for your patience and understanding during this uncertain time.


Hockey Families: 


Though NM Ice is committed to having as normal a hockey season as possible for every level of our house teams, realistically there is more unknown than there is known at this point. Accordingly, decisions on how the season will be organized may not be made until we know what restrictions the governor will lift over the next the next few weeks and what guidance she gives us for the weeks and months following. We will watch all developments closely and be prepared to adjust plans as required. We are planning to start the 2020-21 season on October 5th. Below you will find the link to the registration and the schedule and cost for each division.


Mini Mites (U06) Wednesdays 5:15pm & Sundays 11:30am - $355

Mites (U08) Wednesdays 5:15pm & Sundays 11:30am - $420

Squirts (U10) Tuesdays 5:15pm& Saturdays 1:15pm - $530

Peewee (U12) Mondays 7:15pm& Saturdays 2:45pm - $555

Bantam (U14) Practicing with High School at the moment - $555

High School JV/Varsity Tuesdays 4:30pm & Thursdays 4:30pm & Sundays 7:45am & 9:30am - $710 

**Please note the schedule can be changed to best fit the needs of the Outpost as the state restrictions change and allow more opportunities to add different types of programs to their schedule. Notice will be given at the earliest available.


New this season - every family will pay a $100 fundraising fee and receive 5 raffle tickets to sell. You can sell them and recoop your money or just fill them out and return them. I will give your team manager an envelope full of tickets for each family. If a family has more than 1 athlete they will go to the the oldest athletes team manger to hand out. The $100 per family registration will be added to your initial payment.


We all have more questions than answers at the moment and we’re certain many of you will have lots of questions, too.  Feel free to find any one of our Board Member or reach out to us privately with any questions or suggestions you have.  Let’s all work together to make sure our kids have a great hockey season and know that every coach and NM Ice officer is fully committed to that clear objective.

Attention House Teams, information related to COVID to remember when at the Outpost:

· All state an local health and safety guidelines and Outpost Ice Arenas protocols must be adhered to by all athletes and parents/guardians

· Coaches will remind athletes to maintain appropriate distances, but we ask everyone to please remind their athletes to respect distances throughout the arenas and especially in locker rooms, on the benches and on the ice

· Outpost has large locker rooms, but we ask athletes to dress as much as possible at home so that time in the locker room is limited.  Please don’t spend more time in the locker room than is required.  When practices are complete, athletes will expedite dressing and clear the locker rooms as quickly as possible. 

·  If your child becomes sick with COVID-19, notify the NM Department of Health so they can implement contact tracing.Your child cannot return until they have met CDC criteria to discontinue home isolation.  


· Please take time to read New Mexico's COVID safe practices found at this link and updated periodically. We'll also be posting the link to the NMICE Home page:

  • In accordance with state orders, all staff are required to wear face coverings while in any part of our facility including locker rooms.
  • We have added numerous hand sanitizer stations that are clearly marked and near common entrance and exit areas.
  • In addition to previously existing and established cleaning requirements and regimens, significant enhancements have been made to cleaning and disinfecting processes and schedules. At a minimum, all common areas are cleaned and disinfected immediately following all events and prior to the start of subsequent events.
  • Locker rooms and connected rest rooms are disinfected after each use.
  • We are limiting the total number of people (including staff) allowed into the Outpost below the capacity limits mandated by the state health orders

  • All athletes and others will submit to a self-administered health screening questionnaire and no-touch temperature check upon entry to any part of the Outpost athletic facilities. Anyone showing signs of illness, high temperature or able to answer yes to any of the questions on the health self-test will be politely asked not to enter and to seek medical care as needed.
  • Everyone MUST check-in at the front counter in order for an accurate occupancy count and collection of contact tracing information.
