NEW TO HOCKEY
To register, you require a Hockey Canada ID Number for your player. If you are a returning hockey player from anywhere in Canada, you will have an ID #. If you are NEW to hockey or participated in the First Shift or ESSO Fun Days program, please contact us at email@example.com so we can help you create your player's Hockey Canada ID Number.
WHAT YOU NEED
Full hockey gear is required with the exception of a mouth guard.
-Helmet (labelled with last name on it; as simple as a piece of tape and a sharpie works!)
-Water bottle -with extended spout is very helpful so they can hydrate through their helmet as they cannot be removed on the ice.
It is a good idea to label all of their gear
*Hockey socks and jerseys will be provided at the beginning of the season. Socks are yours to keep but JERSEYS NEED TO BE RETURNED TO YOUR MANAGER at the end of the season. Any name banners added need to be removed. If the jersey is lost or damaged you may be required to pay for the replacement.
Children born in 2017 and 2018 (They must be FIVE years old on or before December 31, 2023).
The season typically starts at the beginning of September and ends mid-March.
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.
Exhibition games will be played primarily in Fernie, Sparwood, Elkford and the Crowsnest Pass. There are optional opportunities to play tournaments across the East Kootenay or in Southern Alberta. The cost of tournaments varies and is separate from the initial registration fees.
Fernie will host a home tournament for the U7 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.
