The season gets underway on Monday, October 4th.
Hockey programs available this fall include:
- Learn To Play Ice Hockey - For kids of all ages who think they might be interested but have never played hockey and might not be ready to commit to a team, this program is for you! Don't be intimidated - every age is welcome! Skilled players and coaches will help novice skaters learn about basic hockey skating, stick handling and general skills. Then they will help you decide what program is best for you.
- The popular Atoms program for 3 - 6 year olds will be held on Saturday mornings at MRC and is all about having fun on the ice. The veteran staff of volunteer Atoms coaches primarily focuses on getting young kids comfortable on skates. Just getting to put on the gear at this age can be an adventure! There is plenty of gear available to borrow for these little tykes so they can come try it out without mom and dad having to worry about purchasing all the "stuff"!
- This year all 6 - 8 year old players will participate in our Cross Ice Program, playing FUN cross ice format games each week on home ice.
- The Girls program will be a single U16 (ages 10 through 16) team this season. Girls' ice hockey is one of the fastest growing emerging women's sports so if you're looking for fun, awesome teammates and great exercise this winter come check it out. The girls are always looking for more players and welcome new skaters into their ranks!
- In addition to those programs listed above, there are coed teams at the Squirt (ages 9 - 10), PeeWee (ages 11 - 12), Bantam (ages 13 - 14), and Midget (ages 15 - 16) levels.
