We are excited to bring you this upcoming season of Minor Ball Hockey!  We hope you and your family have stayed healthy and are enjoying a great new year!  Here is our plan for the upcoming season:

  1. Smaller teams - Each division will have a minimum of 4 teams, however we will be limiting the size of teams to eleven kids.  This is to ensure that practice groups are smaller and your child will be with the same group for the majority of the time.  This format will include ten players and one goalie.

  2. Team Tryouts - Team Tryouts will take place on Sunday April 10th.

  3. Season Curriculum - throughout the 6 practice sessions, coaches will have a set curriculum for the kids to work on their hockey skills.  

  4. Play Format - We will be limiting play on the floor to 5on5 plus a goalie in each net.  Players will not be required to wear masks during play or practices, as they will interfere with their cardio but if you wish your child to wear a mask we will not stop you.  Players will be required to wear their mask when entering the arena.  There will be two referees still conducting the game who will be required to wear masks at all times.  There will be up to two coaches for each team, they will be required to wear masks when dealing with their teams.  League organizers will also be required to wear masks during operations.  Games WILL be allowed and played the entire season.

  5. Outside Associations - Although we normally play a few games outside of our association, we will not be playing any other cities to minimize exposure.  However with the amount of teams we are expecting, we will have lots of variety for teams to play.  All games will be played at our home rink: Centennial Arena.

  6. Covid Protocol - If your child is experiencing any symptoms, even minor ones, or has been in contact with someone who has been diagnosed with covid we will be asking you to keep them home from practice or games.  Please follow provincial guidelines.

Can I register my child if they have not played before?

Absolutely you can!  Our program is great for beginners as we focus on having fun and development.

Can we register a full team?

If your child has a group of friends that they often hang out with please let us know and we will try to group them together, however we cannot guarantee they will stay on the same team for the entire season.  We do this to ensure division parity.  To register together, please select the same team as you are registering.

Why do i pick a team color at registration?

Although we cannot guarantee that players can play on the same team the entire season, we are allowing you to pick your preference at registration.  This is great for players who are wanting to start on the same team, friends or siblings etc.

Will you add TEAMs as registration continues?

Yes, we've only added a few teams at registration open and will add them as demand is met.  We will include as many as possible this year!
