Decision on the number and types of teams to be formed at U15 will be made at the end of June. All registrations after June 15, 2022 for U15 will be on an "as available" basis. Your player will be placed on a wait list while we determine if they can be accommodated into the planned team structures. Every effort will be made to accommodate all players.
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 are determined. Practices will alternate between Fernie, Sparwood and Elkford.
League play may involve travel to Creston, Cranbrook, Kimberley, Invermere, Golden, Fernie, Sparwood, Elkford and Whitefish, MT.
