Youth Hockey

The Orange County Sportsplex offers a variety of youth hockey classes, clinics, and camps through our Sportsplex Hockey Academy. We aim to teach kids (and adults) how to play the game of hockey with hustle and sportsmanship. We work hard at improving skills, but also put a big emphasis on HAVING FUN! The staple of our Hockey Academy are the Intro to Hockey Classes on Sunday afternoons, including Hockey Tots for ages 3 to 6 at 3:45pm and Youth Learn to Play Hockey for ages 5 to 12 at 4:15pm. We run 7 to 8 weeks sessions throughout the year – more information, along with online registration can be found on this page.

The Sportsplex is proud to offer recreational/house hockey league as the exclusive home of the Hillsborough Hogs! Registration for the 2024-2025 season will open in June and will take place through the Sportsplex website. Roster placement, volunteer coaches, and Financial Aid will be administered by Triangle Youth Hockey NC.

The Sportsplex is the exclusive home of the Carolina Thunder youth travel hockey team. The Carolina Thunder is a travel hockey program run by the Orange County Sportsplex. Please visit for more information. You may also e-mail Kevin Kamenski of the Carolina Thunder at
