The 10U age division is for players that are born in 2009 or 2010. Games are played in a half-ice format and there is one game per week on the weekend. This format provides an excellent opportunity for age-appropriate skill development and is part of USA Hockey's ADM principles that our program is modeled after. There are Select teams and Recreational teams in this age group. The teams compete in the MHL. For information on a specific team click the appropriate link below.
We wanted to let you know that we have booked the photographer for picture days on November 9th and November 17th in Renton. Team managers will be sent a sign up link to lock in their block of time. Your manager will communicate with you depending on your game schedule which day they booked for your team.
Pictures can be pre-ordered through the photographers online portal (details to come) or purchased day-of through their paper ordering form at the rink.
What to wear
Teams should coordinate on which jersey they are wearing (bring both just in case).
We want to thank all the coaches, managers, members and families that attended the Season Opener event last week. It was a special day of community and we hope that everyone enjoyed themselves and the festivities. There will be video footage and photos of the event on Facebook and other social media so please check those out.
A big thank you to Wendy Rodgers, Sno-King Board member, for organizing the event and to all the volunteers that joined in to make the day flow so well. Thanks to the parents and players that showed up to participate in the on-ice drills as part of the coaches training sessions. It was a thrill to see so many kids of different ages on the ice at the same time and it was particularly encouraging to the staff to have so many coaches and managers participate in the training sessions.
A special thank you to our guest speakers: Bill Wixey, Q13 Fox News Anchor; Matt O’Dette, head coach of the TBirds; Joe Bonnett, Manager of American Development Model, USA Hockey; and Tod Leiweke, CEO of NHL Seattle.
Finally, thanks to the Accesso ShoWare and TBird organizations and staff for allowing us to use their facility.
The event was a great kickoff to the year and we hope you all have a wonderful 2019/2020 season.

If you are in the 10U age group or older, you should have received your notification from Jordan Burt to sign up for the Pro Performance mental skills training on the Lessonly platform. If you have not, or you are in 8U and want your player to participate, please contact Andrew Birnbrich at Andrew.email@example.com
If you are having trouble with the sign up process, please contact Jordan Burt of Pro Performance at Jordan@properformance.guru.
If you have more than one player in the program, the Pro Performance platform has the capability for only one profile per email address (account). That is why you only received one invitation email when the lesson was sent out on Monday. There are two options your family can choose to proceed with in order to complete the lessons. Please let Andrew Birnbrich know which option you wish to go with at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Option 1: We can keep the single account/email for your family and list all athletes first names in the account name. The lessons can be taken multiple times on each account by default.
Option 2: You can provide a second (or more) email and we can create separate profiles for each player. If you go with option 2 please specify which player will be going with each email address.
We have a Mental Skills Training Coordinator that is available to answer your questions. Her name is Stephanie Stiegler and she can be reached at Stephanie@snokinghockey.com. Please do not have the player contact her directly but if there are questions about the program please have a parent email her and she can help guide you through the lessons and answer any questions about content. There should also be a designated person from your team that can help you with questions.
We will be constantly trying to improve the program so please provide any feedback you may have to us by emailing Stephanie at Stephanie@snokinghockey.com.
We hope you and your player enjoy the lessons.
