Meet Our Coaches
The Amherst Knights Travel hockey program is open to boys and girls starting at the 9u level (ages 9-10) up to the 18u level (ages 17-18). This allows players to start at a young age and develop their skills throughout their youth hockey career.
Tryouts for the travel teams are typically held in March and April, following the conclusion of the winter season. The travel season runs from August to April, providing players with an extended period of high-level competition.
The Amherst Knights play out of the Northtown Center, a state-of-the-art facility located in Amherst, NY. The Northtown Center is a premier hockey destination in the region, offering top-quality ice and training facilities.
Most Amherst Knights Travel teams will practice three times per week, providing players with ample time to develop their skills and work on team strategies. The coaching staff is committed to providing players with challenging and engaging practice sessions that focus on skill development, teamwork, and sportsmanship.
The number of games that travel teams play varies depending on the team's age level and skill level. Most teams will play anywhere from 25-75 games per season, including league games and tournaments. This provides players with numerous opportunities to compete at a high level and develop their skills against top-tier competition.
Starting in the 2023-24 season, Amherst Youth Hockey will be offering a third jersey option for players. This will allow players to have additional customization options and show off their team spirit in a unique way.
In addition to ice fees, most travel teams will participate in league games and tournaments, which may incur additional costs such as travel expenses and registration fees. The program works hard to keep these costs as reasonable as possible, while still providing players with the opportunity to compete at the highest levels of youth hockey.
The Amherst Knights Travel program prides itself on creating a positive and inclusive team culture. Players are encouraged to support and respect one another, regardless of their skill level or background. The program places a strong emphasis on sportsmanship, teamwork, and character development, helping players to not only become better hockey players but also better people.
