WHAT YOU NEED
Full hockey gear is required:
- 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 2011 and 2012 (must be turning 11 or 12 on or before December 31, 2023)
The season typically starts at the beginning of September and ends beginning to mid-March.
Decision on the number and types of teams to be formed at U13 will be made at the end of June. Later registrations will not affect decisions on number of teams formed. Every effort will be made to accommodate all players. If U13 players wish to play “rep” hockey they must try out for the joint EV Raiders Tier 4 team or Cranbrook Bucks Tier 1/2 team.
Two ice times 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.
Depending on total number of U13 players registered it may be necessary to combine with Elk Valley Minor Hockey to form teams.
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 U13 division. Parents are expected to volunteer for fundraising, concession, raffle table, 50/50 and score keeping.
