Update March 24
Hello everyone…thanks for showing interest in the Try It program. To date, we are presently full in the Male Session and still have room in the Female Session.
The parents who are on the wait list have been cc’d as well on this email. So if any player cannot make it, please advise asap and hopefully we can put the wait listed players in the line up.
There is no charge for the program as it is covered by minor hockey. As you know, there have been strict rules set out for minor hockey this year. If your child is sick or shows any signs of illness, please do not have your child attend. We will have a Safety Ambassador at the door to check names off and assist where necessary. The player must come fully dressed and with mask on.
If you feel your child will be reluctant to enter the facility on his/her own, I would suggest not to have them attend. We want to make this an enjoyable experience!!!
I have a basic list of equipment the child should have on. I do have some spare helmets and a few shin pads recently donated. See me if you wish to look at them. See you on the ice!!!
