First Goal Transition

First Goal Transition to XIC Hockey

XIC Hockey would like to welcome you to ice hockey and to the XIC Hockey community. We hope that your child had a positive experience during the First Goal program and is looking forward to continuing with youth ice hockey. Since First Goal players come to XIC Hockey with different experiences and skill levels, we want to provide you with next step program information you will need as you plan ahead. 

If you have any questions, please feel free to call (704) 882-1830 or email

Next Step program Recommendation Process

At the end of the First Goal program, XIC Hockey staff will evaluate players and make specific program recommendations based upon your child’s age and skill level. Please see the chart below that describes how each sticker color correlates to the next step program recommendation.
