SDIA Youth Hockey League is fun! Experience the joy of carrying the puck up the ice on a breakaway and the excitement of scoring a goal or making an amazing save.
With an emphasis on fun and safety, our youth league develops skills on the ice, confidence, pride, focus, responsibility & teamwork.
From the bonds created in the locker room to the relationships formed on the ice - hockey creates lifelong friendships. Hockey encourages time management skills that help kids balance school, responsibilities at home, playing with friends and time at the rink. We offer a house league program for all youth ages, as well as tournament and travel team options for you and your favorite hockey player(s) to choose from.

Vince Rappleyea - Squirt
I’m a local kid who grew up playing roller hockey at the age of 7 in San Diego. I transitioned to playing ice hockey at the age of 12 and played travel hockey for the junior gulls through my early high school years.
As life happens, hockey took a back seat while I started my family.
I got into coaching back in 2017 when my own kids were just getting old enough to play. I’ve coached minis, mites, squirts and competitive travel teams
