West Fargo Hockey follows the USA Hockey and North Dakota Amateur Hockey Association (NDAHA) guidelines for age and gender with our programming.
The cost of hockey varies depending on your age, which program you select, and your personal expectations for equipment and gear. WFHA does offer discounted gear for Intro to Hockey players along with Scholarships for players at most levels.
GOALIE DISCOUNT Travel players who designate themselves as a “Goalie” through the registration process will receive 50% off the regular registration rate. Squirt/10U players will have the option to designated “Skater/Goalie” and “Goalie” will be refunded 50% if they agree to be a goalie the rest of the season once travel teams have been determined.
USA Hockey has partnered with Pure Hockey to provide you with tons of information about equipment, fitting and dressing guides (link below). We recommend connecting with friends or family who already have players in hockey or heading to a local business such as Play It Again Sports or Scheels to ensure you have an expert choose equipment that fits both your player and your budget.
Depending on your player's level, they will have practices, games, jamborees and/or tournaments at different times and locations. We do our best to balance the needs of our members, coaches, and facility partners to create a successful program offering.
Regular season registration opens on July 1 for the upcoming season with closing date varying on level (travel levels close earlier than non-travel/younger levels). Even if you think you have missed the window, please reach out see if we can get your eager skater on the ice!
If your child hasn't skated before, we encourage you to take advantage of a Learn to Skate Program (offered by West Fargo Parks below) and then attend our Intro to Hockey Camp offered in the fall.
