WHAT YOU NEED
Full hockey gear is required:
-Helmet (labelled with last name on it; as simple as a piece of tape and a sharpie works!)
- Mouth Guard
-Water bottle - it is recommended to purchase a water bottle with an extended spout so your child can hydrate through their helmet. Helmets cannot be removed on the ice.
It is a good idea to label all of their gear
*Hockey jerseys will be provided at the beginning of the season and NEED TO BE RETURNED TO YOUR MANAGER at the end of the season.
Children born in 2013 and 2014 (must be turning 9 or 10 on or before December 31, 2023)
The season typically starts at the beginning of September and ends mid-March.
Two practices per week. Days and times will be decided prior to the beginning of each season when number of kids and number of teams is determined. In most seasons there are sufficient numbers of players to form two teams to play in the A and B/C Divisions of the EK League.
League play may involve travel to Creston, Cranbrook, Kimberley, Invermere, Golden, Fernie, Sparwood, Elkford and Whitefish, MT.
Away tournaments will be decided by coaches/managers and information forwarded to the parents as available. The cost for tournaments varies and is separate from the initial registration fees.
Fernie will host a home tournament for the U11 division. Parents are expected to volunteer for fundraising, concession, raffle table, 50/50 and score keeping.|
