WHAT YOU NEED
Full hockey gear is required:
- Mouth Guard
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 2009 and 2010 (must be turning 13 or 14 on or before December 31, 2023)
The season typically starts at the beginning of September and ends mid-March.
U15 team(s) will be formed in conjunction with Elk Valley Minor Hockey. An estimate will be made at the end of June as to whether there will be one or two teams. Every effort will be made to accommodate all players. The level of play for our local team(s) will be determined in September once the outcome of regional tryouts is known. We may have a joint EV Raiders Tier 4 team and/or Recreational House team. It is possible that a combined U15/U18 Rec team may be created in order to accommodate the most players.
**Anyone wanting to play the highest levels of U15 rep hockey must attend the EK Tier 1 AA tryouts in August and the Cranbrook Bucks tryouts in September (registration deadline May 31, 2023)
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.
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 U15 division. Parents are expected to volunteer for fundraising, concession, raffle table, 50/50 and score keeping.
If you are interested in volunteering as a team coach, manager or safety person, please fill out a volunteer application by July 15, 2023 https://www.fernieminorhockey.net/volunteer-application/
Coaches and managers will use TeamSnap to communicate to parents and players. Downloading this free app is recommended.
