Welcome to the 2022-23 Jr. Amerks Intro to Hockey Program: DoodleBugs Registration

The following registration process is for Doodle Bugs Level 1 and Level 2.
(ages 4-8 as of 12/31/2022)


Only $299! This program is truly unique and low price alternative to other programs available in the Rochester area!

Player instruction by the Rochester Ice Center Hockey Academy and Jr. Amerks coaches. Players receive a jersey, stick, as well as player progress reports, and participate in special events throughout the season.

  • Players with no skating or hockey experience should register for Doodle Bugs Level 1.
  • If your player has already completed a season of Doodle Bugs, or has previous hockey experience, register for Doodle Bugs Level 2.
  • Equipment is limited and will be offered to Level 1 skaters first while supplies last.

All players will be evaluated by the coaching staff once the season is underway, with adjustments made as needed.

Registration will ask you to complete parent/guardian contact information, player information and required waivers.

If you have any questions, please email


You must register with USA Hockey prior to completing this form.
