There are a limited number of spaces available in each division. This is due to limited ice availability and a mandated reduction in team size. In a typical season teams have between 12-18 players per team depending on age. This season in order to adhere to the restrictions placed upon hockey teams by the Town of Pickering , OMHA and OHF we can only have a maximum of 10 players per team. Registration will be on first come first serve basis. We reserve the right to move players from one Tier to another Tier in order to form teams. Once a player has been place in Tier bubble they cannot be moved.

Player Safety
 These are the current guidelines with all of our stakeholders and are subject to change as we move through the various phases of reopening. 
  • One spectator per player will be permitted into the arena.
  • Durham Health Unit permits up to 50 people within each arena. 
  • The City Of Pickering allows a maximum of 20 skaters on the ice at one time.
  • Players, parents, coaches and game officials will be required to complete a health screening check before they enter the arena on each occasion. 
  • At this time, dressing room access will be limited. Players are expected to come to the rink with the majority of their equipment on. The City of Pickering will be providing further direction related to where players can put on their remaining items.
  • Anyone entering the arena will be required to wear a mask indoors. Masks are not required to be worn while on the ice.

 Please note, our program has been submitted and has now been approved by the OMHA and Durham Public Health Unit, therefore changes may occur prior to our official start. We remain committed to sharing information with you as it becomes available. Please ensure you visit the website and follow us on social media for updates.
It will take a strong collective effort from our volunteers, coaches, players, and parents to ensure a safe and positive return to hockey. We are confident our hockey community will meet this challenge and we look forward to seeing you at the rink soon.
