***IMPORTANT - Parent Respect In Sport***

All families from U5 to U21 - at least one parent or guardian for each player registered in minor hockey will be required to complete the Respect in Sport - Parent Program as a condition of participation.  The one-hour online course is a proactive, educational program that empowers parents with the tools to ensure the game is enjoyable and respectful for themselves, their children and all other stakeholders in the game.  This is a required course from Hockey Canada, the OHF and Alliance, and players cannot be approved on a roster until it is complete. 
• This course is mandatory in order for your child to be eligible to play. Failure to complete this course will restrict your child’s on ice participation.
• For more information and to complete the course, please visit:


We are always looking for volunteers for Coach/Assistant Coach/Trainers or to assist on the ice.  Please see the Coaching tab on our website for required courses and certificates.

All Team Officials, On-ice Volunteers, On-Ice Officials and Parents are required to take the appropriate ‘Respect’ education.  For more information and to complete the required coaching courses, please click here.
