We are excited to bring you this upcoming season of Minor Ball Hockey!   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.  We add more due to demand
  2. Play Format - We will be playing on the floor to 5on5 plus a goalie in each net.  There will be two referees still conducting the game.  There will be up to two coaches for each team, they will be required to wear masks when dealing with their teams.  . 
  3. Outside Associations - There is a certain amount of travel to be expected when signing up.  We travel as far as Maple Ridge for games.  We will have lots of variety for teams to play.  All home games will be played at our rink: Centennial Arena.

Registration:

We are now officially taking registrations to secure your spot, spots are limited.  Once registered you can pay with credit card only.

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 try to register them to the same team color 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.

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!
