Futures Development Program Now Open
Registration is now open for 2024 Futures Development Program participants
St. Paul, MN – November 30, 2023 – Minnesota Hockey announced today the opening of registration for the Spring 2024 Futures Development Program.
Building on the success of last year’s 13U Futures Development Program, Minnesota Hockey will again facilitate a 13U program (for 2011 and 2012 birth years) as well as a new 15U classification (for 2009 and 2010 birth years). The Futures Development Program is an on-ice program operated by Districts to provide hockey players with an affordable, local developmental opportunity. The 13U program will run from late-March through mid-May, while the 15U program will run from early-April through late-May. Open to players of all backgrounds and experiences (including, at the 15U level, players who do not advance beyond Phase I of the High Performance Program), the program will consist of 13 hours of skill development as well as competitive 3v3 and 5v5 events.
While some District’s program(s) will be administered in different fashions with respect to age and gender classifications, the Futures Development Program will uniformly revolve around providing affordable and meaningful development for all the athletes that it serves.
With registration available on a first-come-first-serve basis, early registration is encouraged. For more information on the program and for access to registration, please visit Minnesota Hockey’s Futures Development Program website here.
For any additional questions, please reach out to Minnesota Hockey’s Hockey Programs Manager (contact information below).

During all JV and Varsity Games there should be very minimal use of the Player Entrance/Locker Room Area by non-varsity players. Under NO CIRCUMSTANCES should any parents be in the player hallway/entrance area during or after ANY JV/Varsity Games. The restrooms in the player hallway are for players and coaches only, everyone else should use the restrooms in the main commons area located to the west of the concession stand. Everyone should use the Arena Main Entrance Doors during JV/Varsity Games. Players and Coaches are prepping for games and everyone else needs to respect that.
Some youth teams will have practice during JV/Varsity Games and understandably they may need to use the locker rooms in the Player Area. In these instances we ask that those players promptly change and go to the back ice however they should avoid the hallway entering the rink while the JV/Varsity players are getting ready for games or are in-between periods. Players that do not have practices during JV/Varsity games are to STAY OUT of the Player Hallway.
All parents should be entering and exiting the Windom Arena through the Main Entrance Doors in the center of the building. For non-game days, if your player is assigned a locker room in the West Player Entrance Wing, your player may enter through those doors however you should proceed through the Main Entrance. If your player needs help tying their skates they can meet you in the rink area by the Donor Wall.
The Dryland Room is for Registered Windom Area Hockey Players only and non-players will be asked to leave that area. The Dryland Room will close 45 minutes to an hour prior to all JV/Varsity Games and will remain closed throughout the game.

WYHA WEATHER POLICY
WYHA’s stance on bad weather accounts for parents to make an ultimate decision on behalf of the child. Windom Arena typically does not close due to poor weather, therefore WYHA does not cancel practice on poor weather days, even if school is called. However, any practices being held on days school is let out due to weather are considered “optional”, yet coaches will attend the practice time for anyone wishing to attend. Players missing such practices will NOT be subject to any team rule sanctions.
In the case of school cancellations, all non-district games will automatically be cancelled. In the case of district games, teams must follow the District 4 policy, which calls for both teams agreeing to cancel a game before it can be cancelled.
Below is the link for registering for safe sport. Safe sport training must be completed by all volunteers that have direct contact with players. Those volunteers requiring screening include; coaches, all parent reps, any locker room attendants, team managers and board members.
