Welcome to the Hogs 2022 / 23 Hogs Season

Registration for our 2022/23 Hogs season is now closed.  Please contact Tom Deis at for more information about registering for 6U/8U.  All other age groups are sold out.

Here is the Planned practice schedule. Team calendars will reflect the final schedule once available.

For 6u-8u, events will be 1-2 hours with multiple cross-ice games in each. They will mostly be at Orange County Sportsplex, Greensboro Ice House or Winston Salem Fairgrounds.  Each cross-ice game will be 15-20 minutes.  Overall, 6U and 8U players can expect to receive approx. 35 hours of total ice time (games + practices).

For 10u-18u, we partner with the Polar Hurricanes House League for the season, so most games will be in Wake County with some home games at Sportsplex.


Meet Your Coach Day  On the afternoon of September 11, just following team selection announcements, the Hogs will host a "Meet Your Coach" event in the parking lot, behind Sportsplex.  The Hogs board will briefly speak about our program and upcoming season. Then players and parents of each team can meet their coach.  We will supply drinks and snacks.  We will also have Hogs apparel on hand for purchase.   More details to come, but please mark this event on your calendars.
