The Capitals offer an excellent program for boys. At each age division, teams are grouped by ability level with practices and games tailored to each group’s ability level. While we strive to develop each player’s skills ability, we also emphasize helping players grow individually and as a team.

All players will go through evaluations. Refer to our Evaluations document under the Resources tab. Depending on player numbers and skill at the different levels, we may host AA, A, B1, B2, and C teams.


This program is designed for players age 9 through 15.


Evaluations are typically held the last two weeks of September. Team selections are typically held the first Saturday of October. Practices will begin immediately following team selections. The season goes through February and sometimes into March, depending on how far teams advance in post-season play.


Our home rink is the Charles M. Schulz Highland Arena located at 800 S. Snelling Avenue, St Paul, MN 55116.

Practices and home games are also held at several other rinks including, but not limited to, West Side Arena, Drake (SPA) Arena, Pleasant Arena, Oscar Johnson Arena and Minnehaha Arena.


Practice schedules vary depending on the level and game schedule.

Typical number of ice times per week are:

  • Squirts: 3-4
  • Peewees: 4-5
  • Bantams: 5-6

We do not run a set schedule, so players can practice any day of the week. Practices are typically held no earlier than 5 p.m. on weekdays.

Younger players usually have earlier practices times and the Bantam players typically practice later in the evening.

Games & Tournaments

Teams in the program play full-ice games.

Each level is scheduled for 16 district games.

In addition to district games, coaches and managers will schedule scrimmages and each team will play in at least two tournaments during the season.


Players in this program must purchase our club jerseys and socks. You can find more information about this here or under our Resources tab.

Uniform purchases are made during registration.

Additional Fees

Your team manager maintains a team bank account to cover expenses such as referee fees for scrimmages, additional tournaments beyond the two each team is allotted and any additional expenses the team manager/coach may anticipate.

At the start of the season each family will be asked for a deposit to get that account started. The amount varies by team, but is typically $100-$200.

Some additional fees may apply for:

  • Longer games / additional ice
  • Peewee A and B1 teams will play 75-minute games starting this season. If your player is placed at one of these levels, an additional $100/player fee will be assessed by the association to help cover the additional ice needed.
  • Bantams at all levels now play 90-minute games. You may recall that we used to charge an incremental fee of $250/player fee to offset the additional ice cost for Bantam players placed at certain levels. Since all Bantam levels now have 90-minute games, that fee has been incorporated into our Bantam registration fee.
  • Paid non-parent coaches
  • Teams that have paid non-parent coaches, generally some higher level Bantam and/or Peewee teams, will have an additional fee to help cover those additional costs if their team has a paid non-parent coach. Fees for this will be $350/player for Bantams and $250/player for Peewees.
