A non-competitive learn to skate and beginner hockey program for boys and girls who have never played organized hockey. Kent Minor Hockey Association is excited and proud to be continuing our Breakaway Hockey program for the upcoming season.

KMHA's Breakaway Hockey program is designed to introduce kids and their families to the sport of hockey in a fun and friendly environment.  It's an opportunity for kids who have never registered for minor hockey to try hockey for a season without the commitment of KMHA's full hockey program.


The focus for the Breakaway Hockey on ice sessions is to have fun and teach kids basic skating and fundamental hockey skills.  It's a non-competitive environment in which boys and girls are encouraged to try activities that teach skills involved in hockey.


What is Breakaway Hockey?


Breakaway Hockeyincludes 8 on-ice sessions in the fall beginning November 1st, 2021.  The on-ice sessions are once per week on the same day, at the same time to make it convenient for parents to schedule.  We will continue for an additional 8 on-ice sessions in the winter beginning on Monday, January 10, 2022.  


The program is open to boys and girls, ages 6-10 who have never registered for organized hockey before. The cost is $99 and includes:


  • Welcome Event - Information about the program & equipment buying
  • 16 one-hour on-ice sessions
  • Expert instruction from experienced KMHA coaches and players
  • Kent Cobras jersey


All new players joining the Breakaway Hockey program will be required to complete the following training


  1. Respect in Sport- one parent to complete an online Respect in Sport - Parent program as a condition of participation.  


    • Cost for the RIS program is $12 (only required for new families joining KMHA)


NOTE: The RIS program is only required to be completed once per family and is good for any other members of your family who may register in the future.


Please forward this information to anyone who may be interested in the program.
