    Welcome to New Mexico Youth Ice Hockey Family FUN

    Planning for the 2019 -20 Hockey Season

    Dear Hockey Parents and Players,

    We are already in the process of planning the next hockey season and we request your specific input so we can most effectively organize our ice schedule, coaching assignments and other logistics.

    As in all past seasons, NM Ice will have House teams at the following levels for the 2019-20 hockey season.  All house teams will generally have two ice sessions weekly with teams divided up appropriately for the number of total participants.

    • Mite/Mini-Mite
    • Squirt
    • Peewee
    • Bantam
    • HS/JV (U16 & U18)

    For Travel hockey in 2019-20, with more ice time available, NM Ice will no longer require or encourage travel players to also play in the house program. Travel players that are interested in more ice time, however, will still be allowed to register to practice with house teams but will not be allowed to play house games unless specifically granted a waiver by the head house, head travel and specific team coaches.  

    NM Ice Travel teams at all levels will generally have four ice sessions weekly, with more as it may become available.  NM Ice, with support from the Outpost Ice Arenas, is committed to the kind of experienced coaching we have had in recent years and, based on projected available players, we are tentatively planning the following travel teams:

    • A Squirt
    • A Peewee
    • A Bantam
    • AA U16
    • A/AA U18

    Additionally, NM Ice would organize and support a B travel team at any level that interest and participation allow for.  B travel players will be encouraged and allowed to also play on an house team.

    Tournaments for NM Ice travel teams would be similar to this season with a commitment to try to have at least one and hopefully two tournaments in Albuquerque.

    Please share this information with any player and/or family that you think may not have received it and go to the following Doodle Poll to let us know your interest and preferences for next season so we can plan effectively for another successful season for our growing NM Ice Wolves hockey program.  Your participation in this Doodle Poll is extremely important to our ability to properly plan for next season.

    Please let any one of us know if you have any questions.

    Most Sincerely,

    Jeff Thompson - President NM Ice
