    Congratulations Mighty Mites!

    Our Mighty Mites took the ice during the intermissions of the Hurricanes vs. Blue Jackets game.  Great experience for all and what a 3rd period comeback by our Hurricanes!



    Hillsborough Hogs - 2023-24 Season Registration

    Registration is closed.  Please contact Tom Deis to be placed on our wait list.  

    Practice schedule  (Refer to SE App for possible changes):


    What's new this season:

    • In our continued partnership with the PHHL, we will transition from 15U & 18U age groups to 14U, 16U & 18U. We're confident this will foster tighter competition, better skill development and a better experience for our teenage players. Below are the birth years in each group for reference.
    • Assuming the same strong registration volume as last season, we will field two advanced teams in each of our 12U age group and one advanced team in our 10U & 14U age groups  (16U and 18U age groups contain one division). In addition, Hillsborough Hogs will be fielding tournament teams to compete with A and B level travel teams. Players are also eligible to join Polar's House Select Tournament teams.
    • Goaltenders are the foundation of any successful hockey team. To better support this key position, the Hogs are offering a $250 rebate for goalies in our 10U - 18U age groups who commit to tending goal in at least 50% of games. In addition, we will provide goalie-specific clinics throughout the season. Spots are limited so please communicate your interest to our hockey director, Chris Bolduc
    • We are increasing the number of practices for our 6U and 8U players.  Our "Mighty Mites" will receive 2 practices per week led by our experienced, USA Hockey certified coaching staff.
    • For our newer hockey families, we have added an Hockey FAQs section to our site including some information about house vs. travel hockey. Our coaches, team managers and board members are also happy to answer any questions.


    Teams and Pricing:

    One of the Best Youth Hockey values in the State!

    Registration excludes cost of USA Hockey membership and jersey order if needed.


    What's Not Changing:

    • Sibling discounts, payment plans and financial aid are available with our registration. We will work with families to make ice hockey as affordable as possible.
    • Our 6U and 8U will continue to participate in jamborees and our new "mini-house league" with Greensboro and Winston Salem.
    • All practices and games will continue to be led by our experienced USA Hockey certified coaching staff.
    • The Hogs will continue to host special events throughout the season including "Meet Your Coach" parties and our famous "Holiday Hootenanny"


    Please reach out to one of our board members with any questions.  Thank you for continued support in the Hillsborough Hogs!
