Grab a stick and join the fun! Kids can enjoy a structured warm-up and some non-competitive hockey in a fun and relaxed environment. All players must supply a helmet with face protector, neck protector, gloves, shin pads & hockey stick.
Please be aware that Hit the Ice will be a 3 on 3 setting this year, to ensure physical distancing guidelines are followed. Please do not arrive more than 10-minutes early for your session. Players should come dressed in their equipment and ready to play - skates can be laced quickly in the dressing room upon arrival. Only one parent per child will be permitted in the dressing room. Siblings are not permitted in the dressing rooms. Parents may watch from the bleachers however there will be no access to the canteen/viewing area. Parents must maintain social distancing on the bleachers. Please exit the arena immediately following your session.
The ice surface area for Ages 6 and under and 7 - 9 will be cross ice. This change is consistent with the Long Term Player Development Model developed by Sport Canada and adopted by Hockey Canada and Hockey Manitoba. This approach focuses on optimal skill development and provides each player with the best opportunity to participate, develop their skills and have fun!
