High School

The Lexington Thoroughbreds Varsity high school hockey team participates in the Kentucky High School Hockey League (KHSHL) and is for all high school aged students in the greater Lexington and Fayette country areas. Teams that win the end of season tournament have the opportunity to participate in the USA Hockey Youth National High School Division II tournament.

CKHA also offers a junior varsity high school hockey program in conjunction with its varsity team. They participate in an independent schedule and aim to participate against other JV teams and targeted 16U travel programs.


High school hockey players must be attending high school (9th - 12th grade) and at least 14 years of age.


The JV High School team is open to all high school players.

The Varsity High School team is selected from tryouts. Players must be invited to play on the Varsity team.


Practices and home games are at the Lexington Ice Center. Away games may be played in Kentucky or neighboring states (IN, OH, WV, TN), and usually are no more than 3 hours travel. Tournaments may be several states away.


The high school hockey season starts in late August with practices and typically concludes in early March with the league tournament.


Practices are held 2-3 times per week, are typically on weeknights, and don't start before 6:00 PM


Each team can expect to play approximately 30 games, including league, independent, and tournament games.


Club uniforms are required and can be purchased through our Pure Hockey online team store. Uniform requirements vary by age group.

Junior varsity program fees are typically between $1700 and $2100 per season depending on roster size.
