18U/16U General Information


Elite A1 Select teams

This is the top level of hockey SnoKing offers and is targeted at the players and families that are committed to hockey.

These teams are the best in the state. They generally play in the Pacific Coast League (PCAHA) that is based out of Vancouver, BC area.

Visit here for more information.

Select A2/A3 Teams

These are the next level of hockey and consist of players that can't make the committment to the top teams or who are working to make those teams.

These teams typically play in the Washington State PNAHA league or Pacific Coast League (PCAHA) and compete in the State championships with the goal of going to USA Hockey Tier II Championships.

Visit here for more information.

Recreational / "C" Teams

Sno-King offers recreational hockey teams where all registered players are evaluated and put on teams with the goal of having approximately equal teams.

These teams play against teams from other associations in the Seattle area.

Visit here for more information.

Recreational / C Development teams

If there is enough interest SnoKing will create a Recreational / C Dev team.

The Dev teams are a great opportunity for the motivated recreational player interested in getting additional ice time and working on more advanced skills and systems than can be worked on with their C teams.

Visit here for more information.

PNAHA Development Camps

At the 14u and older divisions PNAHA holds a Select Player Camp during one weekend near the end of January.

This camp is used to select the top players from the state who will progress to the Pacific District Select Camp and then to the USA Hockey National Camp.

The coaches, divsional reps and hockey director will make recommendations as to who should attend this camp. Typically we have our Elite A1 teams players and our top Rep Tier II players attend this camp.
