Registration is now open for the 2022 - 2023 Portman hockey season. Please read about the process carefully on the DAHA website and get registered at https://www.duluthhockey.com/season-registration.
Portman will offer the following levels (you will select the appropriate level during registration):
*Mini-mite/6U (NEW in 2022): For any player who is new to hockey and was born before June 1, 2018. This is the required level for any player who will not yet be in kindergarten and has not already completed a year of organized hockey. This is also an option for any first year player who was born on or after June 1st, 2015, regardless of grade.
*Mite 1/8U (born on or after June 1st, 2013): For any player who has played at least a year of organized hockey or a player who will be in at least kindergarten. Mite 1s should already be comfortable skating and have some basic hockey knowledge. This is the typical level for kindergarteners and first graders.
*Mite 2/8U (born on or after June 1st, 2013): For players who have played a couple years of Mite 1s and have advanced their hockey skills. This is the typical level for second and third graders.
*Reminder that the squirt level will now be entirely run through DAHA.
More information will come out about preseason ice time and the official start to the season. Typically, Mite 1s and Mite 2s officially begin at the end of October. The Mini-mite season will begin after the last DAHA Learn to Skate session (mid-December). If you're interested in signing up for DAHA's free Learn to Skate program, visit www.duluthhockey.com/learntoskate.
We are excited to welcome everyone back to Portman this winter! Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions pertaining to our local rink. For registration issues, please contact DAHA directly.
The kids often tell us some of their best Portman memories are those spent rink ratting with their friends down at the rinks. Keep track of your child's hours spent rink ratting, or ask your older kids to track their own hours. We will email everyone once a month to collect hours, and the kids can earn prizes at the end of the season for their rink rat hours. All of our rink ratters will receive a Portman Rink Rat T-shirt.
Visit the Garon Brothers site for styles and ordering.
To provide all area youth an opportunity to excel through the sport of hockey while developing sportsmanship, teamwork, self-esteem, confidence, and respect for others.
