The Never Ever League is for the person who has never ever played hockey before. The true beginner. It combines off ice instruction with on ice skills sessions, and even instructional game time.

The perfect place for you to start playing ice hockey. Whether you can ice skate or not!

LAHPA Players,

With the "new normal" there have been several changes made to the facility and to how we are going to play hockey. Here is how it works.

Players, Goalies and officials must:
- Fill out new Waiver Form and turn in as you enter the rink (electronically sign waiver)
- Get dressed as much as possible at home
- Arrive no more than 15 minutes before your game
- Enter the rink with a mask on
- Upon entering the rink you will have temperature taken, if you have a fever you will not be permitted in the rink

After entering the rink there are numerous hand sanitizing stations located throughout the rink
- The locker rooms are limited to 6 people, read chalk board sign for your teams locker room location to put skates on
- If your locker room is at capacity you will put your skates on in a designated location in the rink.
- Try to maintain safe distance on the bench
- No bare hand shakes
- Don't share water bottles or towels
- After game is over you have 15 minutes to remove your skates
- You will exit thru the front emergency exit door on each sheet of ice
- No fans are permitted to watch the games in person. They will have to use LiveBarn
- Rink employees will be sanitizing seating locations between games

Why is it called the Kinslow Cup?

After 10 weeks of learning how to skate and play hockey, you will play in the Kinslow Cup. It will be your first real hockey game and the winner will get to celebrate by hoisting the Kinslow Cup in the air and skating around the rink as if it was the real Stanley Cup.

The Kinslow Cup is named after Chuck Kinslow. Chuck passed away in August of 2010 at the age of 47. Not only was Chuck an avid skater who loved the game, he was an incredibly nice guy. Chuck started playing hockey as a sophomore in high school and continued to play club hockey for a few more years before his other passion of flying took over. He then picked up hockey again at the age of 40 and joined the Never Evers. Anyone who skated with him either as a fellow teammate or a student of his coaching, loved playing the game with him. His love for the game was obvious when you saw him on the ice. His Wife, Shelley says that Chuck was not a natural athlete but if you put something other than shoes on his feet, he did great. Not only was Chuck a great hockey player, he was a wonderful family man, friend and pilot. He passed down his passion for flying and skating to his son, Ian. In honor of his Dad, every year Ian presents the winning Never Ever team with the Kinslow Cup. The CK 7 patch on your jersey is a reminder that we will never forget Chuck Kinslow and his contribution to the hockey program here in Louisville.
