Pittsburgh Ice Arena is pleased to announce the revival of our In-House League for the upcoming Fall session! There will be absolutely ZERO travel involved with this league, all practices and games will be held here on Saturdays and Sundays, respectively. In addition to not having to travel, we have and will continue to follow all C.D.C. guidelines along with both PA and Westmoreland County guidelines. We want to provide kids an outlet to play the game they love in an environment that is safe and secure for not only them but for families as well! 

 The goal of the P.I.A. In-House program is to provide opportunities for groups of Mites (8U), Squirts (10U), Pee Wees (12U), and Non-Checking Bantams (14U) to play the great game of hockey in an environment inclusive to learning and development. This league is a fantastic outlet for those who are looking to either take their first steps on their hockey journey at the younger levels or for players at the older levels to touch the ice more often in addition to working and acquiring new skills. 

This league is a “draft-league” in which players will sign up as individuals to then be distributed into teams based upon skill level. There will be two practices prior to the first game for skill assessment.


Age Groups: 8U (Mite), 10U (Squirt), 12U (PeeWee), 14U (Bantam- Non-Checking)

11 games guaranteed (10 regular season and all teams make playoffs)

Each game will feature three 15-minute, running clock periods that will not be stopped unless an injury occurs. A short break will be given between periods.
