In addition to our Minor hockey programs, we will be offering optional pre-season programming including Blizzard Hockey Sweat Camps!. These will provide players an opportunity to obtain extra ice time prior to tryouts and the start of the regular season. We anticipate these camps starting around the 19th or 20th of September. Stay tuned to our website and social media pages for more details in the near future. This year, all registration, payment of fees, and organizing of groups will be administered by Blizzard Hockey (you won't be able to register or pay for them in our registration systems).
Respect In Sport Parent Program
The Respect in Sport Parent Program is an effective and informative online training program for parents of active children and promotes key values in providing a positive, safe and respectful environment for all participants in sport. It is MANDATORY for one parent/guardian per family to complete the course. Parents who have completed the course in previous seasons, need not complete it again.
