    2021-2022 Season Fees

    Our hockey program has, over the years, worked diligently to keep our season fees as low as possible.  With increasing ice costs and fees associated with league participation, we have had to adjust our pricing slightly to account for these added expenses.  Below are the fees for the 2021-2022 season.  You will have the option to pay the season fee in full or over a monthly payment structure.

    Summer Training Program

    We are excited to begin our summer training program.  As a reminder, our summer training program begins the weekend of June 6.  Please be sure to check the schedule for the correct starting date and time for each level of play.  Additionally, please see our summer safety guidelines below: 

    1.  To limit time in locker rooms, players are encouraged to arrive dressed.  

    2. All players and coaches must use a face mask.

    3. Parents may watch all practices.  Vaccinated spectators are not required to wear a mask.  

    4. If a player isn't feeling well or was exposed to a confirmed Covid-19 case, the player should stay home. 

    We are thrilled to begin our summer training program.  If you have any questions about our summer programming, please contact Director Johnston.
