Youth Recreation Hockey Program - 2017/18 Season

Available to boys and girls, ages 7-16, the city program provides an opportunity for children to participate in a non-competitive hockey environment. This program is focused on children who are not participating in another hockey program, association or league. 

A minimum of 10 ice sessions will be held on Friday evenings at the Smith Arena (T.G. Smith Centre). The hour long sessions include skill development and scrimmage. The cost for the program is $100 and full equipment for all participants is required.   

The first winter session will be on Friday, January 5, 2018.

Ice session times will be posted on registration day. Please note that ice sessions may start as early as 4:30 p.m.

Although the city will try to accommodate as many players as possible, there is a limited number of spots available.
