Little Cougars

Our Little Cougars are made up of teams classified as under 6  and under 8.  Our program is set up as a development program mixed with a little bit of fun competition!  We understand the importance of multisport athletes, thus we keep our registration open for all potential hockey players (boys and girls) through to December 31!  Little Cougars will be skating and developing skills together with station based activities on Wednesdays.  The majority of Saturdays will be spent separated between 6u and 8u players.  Here they will have the opportunity to further hone their skills, gain confidence and play games.  At this age, we don't belong to a team, but will play games both home and away with the furthest travel being close to 40 minutes.  We are planning on attending the MAHA jamborees (Traverse City here we come!) and allowing the 8u group to participate in the state tournament.  There are countless fun things this group does through out the season, with the BIGGEST event being playing, then attending a game at the LCA!    If you have additional questions regarding this program, please contact the office at 517-579-2152

Junior Cougars

For 10u or Squirt Hockey:

Our squirt recreational (house) team has the opportunity to both develop individual and team skills through practices and games.  Each coach will make the decision for the team if and which tournament they will participate in.  These costs are not included in registration fees.  We encourage co-ed teams at this age level.

NEW Hybrid Program!! Best of Both Worlds!

If you are a parent of a player looking for more information, give us a call and we'd be glad to help you!

For those who are interested in playing full ice games, but their player may not be quite ready for the intensity of full ice (all the time) we are introducing a GREAT program geared toward you.

Players who are between the birth years 2016 - 2019 who are playing as a Little Cougar, will now have the opportunity to try out for a hybrid Howell Hounds team as well!  This team will have a full ice practice or game once weekly, participate in AAU tournaments and games while still playing/practicing with our Little Cougars on half or cross ice (age dependent) to continue to increase their confidence and skills.

Follow the link to complete an interest form.  The team will have a try out in early September.
