Below is a list of questions commonly asked by parents considering registering their children into hockey for the first time.

How do I know what level my child will play at?

  • Here is a table of birthdates vs. Level for this season:

  • At what age can my child start playing hockey?

    • It’s never too late to start! Kids 7 years old and up to 20 years old can join a team.

  • How will my child be placed on a team?

    • Look on the “Tryouts” page of this web site to find out when the tryout sessions are for your child’s age group. These start in Mid-August and continue through mid-September.

    • Coaches and the Hockey Development Committee evaluate all players.

    • Once tryouts are over, your child will be placed on a team and contacted by their new coach.

  • What is the time commitment for playing hockey?
