Do you have teams for just girls?

Yes! We have Female teams from U7 through to U15. We are hoping to add a U18 Female Team for the 2024-2025 season.

When does the season start and end? Are there any breaks throughout the season?

The hockey seasons starts sometime in September (early or middle depending on the division) and ends in March prior to Spring Break. Hockey typically runs over long weekends, however, takes a break for Christmas (unless your team is involved in tournaments). 

How much does it cost to play hockey here?

The cost of the hockey season depends on the age group your child is in. Check out our Minor Hockey Fee Structure page

When do rep tryouts take place?

Tryouts typically take place the week after Labour day.

Can we make Friend/Coach Requests?

We do not take friend or coach requests at the association level. We have over 500 players in the association, and it is nearly impossible to ensure that friends are on teams together. Our first priority for U6-U9 and U11-U18 Recreational/C Divisions, is to ensure that teams are balanced. After evaluations are completed, you may send an email to and make friend requests (with reasoning), however, nothing is guaranteed. What we can guarantee you, is that your kids (and you the parents) will make new lifelong friends from hockey!
