While there is uncertainty as to when the upcoming hockey season will start, we need to be ready for when the hockey arenas open up again.


With that uncertainty in mind, we are offering a payment plan to make it easier for our hockey families to register - $50 deposit when you initially register with the remainder of the fees split over 5 equal payments between September to January.


Our refund policy allows for 100% refund of all fees if registration is withdrawn before the player takes to the ice. That also covers any delays in the start of the season, your money is refundable until the time your player participates in club evaluations or practices.
