Mountain Militia

Tryouts - Update (March 2)

Because of the anticipated inclement weather beginning this evening, Mountain Militia Tryouts have been rescheduled. The tryouts will now be held on Sunday, March 10th, at 12:00 pm (noon).

Tryouts will take place at the Stephen C. West Ice Arena in Breckenridge, Colorado.

Season Information

Militia will be fielding up to 2 Co-Ed teams and 1 Girls team to participate in the High Plains Hockey League. The HPHL season will begin the weekend of March 15th and will conclude with playoffs the weekend of May 12th. 

Each team will carry up to 18 skaters and 2 goalies. A practice team will be offered for both co-ed and girls teams with the potential opportunity to get games based on needs. 

Girls Team Note:

If the girls' team has less than 15 players at tryouts, the girls' team may be eliminated. In the past, the girl's team has played far too many games with 6-8 skaters, creating an experience that was less than ideal for those involved.

Please understand that if chosen for a team, the Mountain Militia staff and coaches expect that players who accept their team's roster spot are COMMITTED to being at HPHL games and their showcase.

The T1/Varsity will return once again to the Boston, MA area for the 2024 Sr Chowder Cup July 18-21. This is an excellent opportunity for players to gain exposure on the East Coast with a showcase attended by scouts from Junior Leagues and Colleges all over the U.S.A. and Canada.


Players must attend high school in Colorado or Wyoming. Players on out-of-state teams who return to a Colorado/Wyoming high school in the spring are eligible. Players must also be enrolled in ALL 9th-grade level or higher classes. Eligibility for HPHL is determined solely by grade level, not birth date, ability, or size. Players in 8th grade during the spring season are not eligible.

HPHL Registration


HPHL Registration

  • You will either need to log into your Sportsengine account or create a new account. Log in/create account links are in the upper left corner of the page.
  • The account MUST be in a parent's name. You will not be able to register the account holder as a player.
  • You can register multiple players from your account.
  • Make sure you enter an accurate and valid email address for at least one parent/guardian. This email will be used for league communication.
  • Be sure to enter the school the player actually attends.
  • If the player is homeschooled, attends an online, private, charter, or open-enrollment school, you will also need to enter the public school attendance area the player lives in.
  • If the school is not listed, look for the "not listed" option at the top of the list. Checking that will allow you to enter the actual school in the next box.
  • Once registered a team representative will contact you regarding tryouts and required paperwork.

Mandatory Credentials and Paperwork

Players born in 2004 or earlier will need to complete Safe Sport Training prior to being added to a roster. If this was done during the fall or winter seasons it is still valid and does not need to be redone. 

  • The "Required Core Training" course can be accessed here. Do not take the Youth Athlete Training courses, as they do not meet this requirement.
  • Be sure to use your USAH confirmation number to log into the MyHockeyHQ Portal on the USAH site.

Each player will need to provide the following to their team manager:

  • First semester grades on school letterhead showing a 2.0 or above (for the semester, not cumulative) and no F’s. Contact the team manager or club coordinator if not currently grade eligible for further instructions.
  • School ID. The grade report with player's name and school listed can be used as school id as long as it is from the Colorado or Wyoming HS that will be used for team assignment. If the initial grade report is from a different HS, then a copy of the Colorado or Wyoming HS ID will be needed.


All games will be played on the Front Range and in Breckenridge. Schedules will come out in early March after tryouts.

Season will begin on March 15-May 12

  • Tier 1 will play 12 Games plus Playoffs
  • Tier 2 and Girls will play 10 Games plus Playoffs.
