Wisconsin Capitols AAU Developmental Hockey Teams

Why We Started Our Developmental Hockey Program..

"These team's are purely developmental, we are offering as a place where kids have the ability to have a full-ice practice with only their team on the ice. Which obviously means that every skater will have more opportunity to develop their skating & stick-handling skills. But, we also want to really start to develop their feel for the game or "hockey sense." Things like where they need to be on the ice, how to really move with the puck to open other teammates up, move without the puck to where are open to get the puck back and be able to actually pass the puck when the opportunity presents itself. To develop their all-around game as a hockey player & person and be able to do it in an environment with great coaches and a truly developmental approach it.

It's a great opportunity for players who would like to play their association team as well as our AAU team. And for players (& parents) who would rather do our program as their only option (as we are planning to do with Kennedy) it’s a great fit for those families as well."

  • Start Date; Week of Monday, September 5th.

  • COST: $2,875.00

This will be the only travel for our entire Wisconsin Capitols AAU Developmental Team's Winter Seasons; with the exception of any approved day trips for scrimmages. The original intent of these teams was to have zero travel and no extra nights spent in a hotel, they're 7 & 8 years old. The only reason we’re going to Rosemont is because the kids have such a great time at the outdoor tournament and it only ends up being a 1.5 hrs drive.


*Any skater who plays on any of our AAU teams are still eligible to play with their association as well (if they choose too) & can be listed on both rosters without breaking any WAHA rules or regulations.*
