We are excited to have each and every player join us for a fun season of hockey!!!  Will it be different yes but fun nonetheless!!There are some important items so please look things over and let us know if there are any questions at this time.
If you are in U11, U13, U15 and U18 you should now have received your group so that you are aware of which practices to attend.The reason for the splits is the limit to on ice numbers and the teams will be made of the 2 groups in each division.

Fees 
We will be running a 3 on 3 and 4 on 4 league with smaller team sizes. There will be a 3week development and evaluation period, followed by team creation.Registration fees will stay the same to supplement for the rising cost of ice time and to pay for referees and timekeepers as there will be no gate fees.  Players will get the same amount of ice time as in previous years. If the season is cancelled due to COVID-19 refunds will be pro-rated. You have paid your deposit we are now looking for a September payment towards clearing accounts by mid-November
