You’ve made it into the Castle!
Players who have graduated from our Learn to Play program, or otherwise demonstrated they possess a good hockey foundation,* are ready for a more robust training and competitive environment with the Loudoun Castles, the house hockey affiliate of the Loudon Knights travel hockey club. We offer co-ed teams at the 6U, 8U, 10U, 12U, and 14U age levels for players.
The Castles practice once during the week and play weekend games over the course of a 24-week season. Our practices focus on high-tempo, station-based sessions with a heavy dose of small-area games. Just like our Learn to Play program, we want our players to develop and learn within the context of the game following the ADM.
Our House games include a “no-blowout rule.” No one gets better in a game decided by 10 goals, so we won’t have games decided by 10 goals. If, during our season, one team develops a significant lead, we will adjust the number of players on the ice to make it a competitive game. Our players get better when they compete and enjoy the game.
Goalies- we have you covered. Ion House practices include goalie instruction for those interested in learning this specialized position!
