All Lions & Grizzlies assessment ice will be held at the UAF Patty Center for the upcoming season. Each athlete must be registered for the 2019-20 season with USA Hockey beforehand as the registration process will ask and require your athlete's current USA Hockey number for the '19-20 season. If you have not already obtained a 2019-20 identifier, CLICK HERE to register with USA Hockey or click the Register Now graphic. Once you have your USA Hockey number, continue on to the registration portal with Arctic Lions & Alaska Grizzlies under the next section of this page.


CHECK-IN: Check-In will begin 45 minutes prior to the posted assessment time for the athletes. Registered athletes will be issued a penny at the registration check in, but are encouraged to wear a light or dark jersey preferably with no team logos.

PARENT MEETING: A parent meeting will be held after the first assessment for each age group to discuss season plans with the coaches and admin staff, as well as present information for the upcoming season. More info regarding the parent meeting will be available at the check-in table.

UNIFORM & TEAM WEAR SIZING: To expedite the uniform fitting process, athletes will be measured and or sizing runs will be available so your athlete can be property fitted for jersey and team wear for the season. If an athlete does not complete this process and they are selected for a team, uniform and team wear delays are possible as well as a possible $50 assessed to cover rush fees. More information will be available at the check-in desk for the uniform and team wear sizing process.


Coaches will call each athletes and notify them of the outcome of their assessment. Those athletes selected for a team will notified and the official roster will be posted online on the official website. The association will post the official team roster as soon as possible, but it is not instantaneous.

Information regarding the coach lead parent meeting will also be disbursed at that time and a $250 player fee will become due and payable within 48-hours of the team meeting unless arrangements have been made directly with the Head Coach.
