Welcome To The St. Paul Capitals Hockey Association


We are opening registration earlier than usual this year in an effort to allow families the option of spreading out the season fees through more payments throughout the fall.  This will also allow us to better plan for the upcoming season which helps ensure a smooth start for everyone.  Please read all of the directions carefully on the welcome page of the registration session to avoid repeating certain portions of the process.  We are looking forward to another exciting season of hockey - go Capitals!!!

The St. Paul Capitals Hockey Association would like to make your first season in our organization an affordable one! 

For the 2015-16 season, all new Mini-Mites (boys and girls) aged 7 and under will pay no association fee (and neither will their parents)!

Also, older skaters coming to our organization for the first time (and previously not registered with USA Hockey) will receive $500 off their Association Fee for the upcoming season.

Take this opportunity to join up and learn more about hockey, watch your kids have fun, and enjoy the season!

Registration information is coming soon.

For more information on this incentive, please contact SPCHA Executive Director Laura Shaffer at or view the flyer below.

We'll see you at the rink soon!

Two great tournament traditions continue in St. Paul this season, with the return of the Ice Breaker tournament for Squirt B & C teams January 8-10 and the Heart Breaker tournament for U12A, U10A, and U10B teams January 22-24.

Teams participating in the Ice Breaker will be able to watch their coaches skate against a crew of their hockey heroes, when the men behind the bench take on the NHL Alumni team Saturday night, January 9th.

Girls teams participating will enjoy one of the best atmospheres in youth hockey when Charles M. Schulz Arena becomes the home to some great competition and fun.

Parents will find themselves ideally located in the heart of the Twin Cities, with easy access to shopping, dining, and all the great things St. Paul (and Minneapolis) have to offer.

More information is coming soon on accommodations, and we expect both of these tournaments to fill up fast so visit our tournament page today and send in your entry form and fee soon!

Back to Back State Champs!!


For the second consecutive season, The St. Paul Capitals are Minnesota Hockey's Pee Wee A State Champions.

Head Coach Chris Nei and staff carried over the championship mentality from the previous year, despite only 4 returning players.

Despite a rash of injuries during the regular season, the team finished second to Mahtomedi in the District 2 regular season standings.

The Capitals started their roll in the District Tournament, winning 3 games by a combined score of 26-11.

In the Region Tournament at Fogerty Arena, a second round loss to Champlin Park sent the team on a journey through the playback bracket that included wins over North Branch and Moundsview before they exacted revenge on Champlin Park to secure a spot in the State Tournament.

Nothing came easy that weekend in Lakeville, the team had to come from behind to beat a strong Orono team 6-5, went into overtime against Alexandria before beating the Cardinals 4-3, and finally locked down another trophy for Owen (The O-Dog) Nei's bedroom with an 8-4 win over Warroad.

Congratulations to all the coaches and players on another great season!
