Juvenile Hockey is back!
Over the past few months, the Hamilton Minor Hockey Council has been working with the City of Hamilton, the Minor Hockey Alliance of Ontario, and the Ontario Hockey Federation to find a way that Juvenile hockey can be offered during these trying times.
Below is the information relating to running Juvenile, subject to approval by the local Health Unit and our governing body, the Alliance. This plan is based on the province staying in Stage 3 and will require volunteer support.
Most importantly, we need to ascertain the number of players wishing to play.
- The season will begin November 1 and end March 14 (the start of March Break).
- There will be a 2 week break at Christmas.
- Teams will play games on a scheduled evening(s) throughout the week and on weekends.
- Due to the virus, there will be limited ice available. We will be doing our best to make the times and location(s) convenient for as many as possible.
- Based on the limits to the number of players that can be on the ice and our governing bodies’ rules, we will be playing a modified 4 on 4 game. View the format by clicking here.
- To provide this program, we will need the support of volunteers more than ever before.
- If you have not yet registered, and want to play, please do so as soon as possible. The cut-off date for registration is October 15. Given the constraints we are under, we will not be unable to accept any players after that date.
- Cost is $500. A payment option is available with $300 paid when you register and the balance due on October 15. Payment is by credit card only.
- Follow this link to secure your spot now.
Looking forward to seeing you on the ice soon!
Update on Registration for 2020/21
Given the uncertainty of the upcoming hockey season due to the COVID-19 virus, the Ontario Hockey Federation has issued information regarding registration across the province.
Any and all registration money that has been collected prior to June 1 will be held in trust until a decision is made regarding the upcoming season.
We thank you for registering and supporting your local Association. If the season is altered or cancelled, the OHF will guide how these funds will be handled.
Registration, however, is not closed. Click on the link to the right to visit our online registration system. This will allow you to register, with payment due once we know the details of how our season will be played.
We realise that these are uncertain times and the future is unknown. Please register if you are planning on having your child play this season so that we can plan our ice needs, jersey requirements, etc. Plans are being put in place for both a regular and altered season. Knowing our numbers will support that process.
Stay Safe and we look forward to seeing you on the ice in the near future!
