Spring Sessions starting March 26

We have a number of Spring sessions at Yerba Buena Ice Rink this spring and summer.

Sabercats 3v3 league (April 3- May 22)

Open to any USA Hockey registered player born between 2000 and 2007. 3 on 3 is a fast-paced, exciting and ideal training ground for every level of player. It is fun and helps to develop creativity and passion for the game. This will be a non-coached league and the overall philosophy is for our kids to have FUN, playing hockey with their teammates.

Each team will consist of 4 players and 1 goalie. Goalies who play for multiple teams will play for half price (2 hour commitment eachSunday). The format is 20-minute CROSS-ICE games with no coaches, no refs, no whistles. The sessions will be an hour long on Sunday mornings. We will accept players on a waiting list who will be invited if any team needs to replace absent players. We will use best efforts to accommodate any teammate requests. Individual players are welcome as well and will be placed into skill appropriate teams by SF coaches.

3v3 Games:
April 3,10,17,24

May 1
