This program is designed to provide competitive levels (AA, A, B) of play for ages 10U through 16U. Teams in this program will play in the Rocky Mountain Hockey Federation (RMHF) as well as travel out of state to several tournaments a season.

Players that are selected for these teams require a larger commitment for players and parents. RMHF teams are leveled according to ability and typically practice 3 times a week, with 1 or 2 games on the weekends. There may be occasional weekday games for RMHF teams as well.
