New Hockey Players
Welcome to Minor Hockey
We look forward to having your son or daughter participate in our program.
As we get closer to September, we will announce the specific days and times for your child's program. We have ice times (7 days a week) at Richmond Ice Centre, Minoru Arenas and Richmond Olympic Oval.
There will be ice cancellations during the season. This is normal and it is factored into the price that you paid. Richmond Arenas takes away our ice when there are large events, including tournaments at Richmond Ice Centre. For example, we probably will not have our ice sessions on Thanksgiving weekend and you definitely will not have ice sessions over the Winter Break. We will let you know about these cancellations as we get closer to them.
We will be assessing all of our new players at the start of our program and, if some of the children are ready, they may be moved to teams. We will not do this unless you agree.
Children must wear full equipment to every session. If you want to borrow equipment from us, we will help you with that in early September.
Children are not permitted onto the ice until a coach is present. Please ensure that your child understands this rule.
We recommend that you label all equipment with your child's name and we also suggest that you put your child's name on the front of his/her helmet so that our coaches can easily get to know your child's name.
Once your child is wearing skates, please remind him/her to stay on rubber flooring so the skates remain sharp and undamaged.
It is also very important to note that you are responsible to supervise your child before, during and after our programs. Please do not leave the building. If your child needs to use the washroom or needs help with his/her equipment, it will be your responsibility to help him/her.
