Programs
There were more changes implemented by Hockey Canada for the upcoming season. U5 Program is designed for the youngest players, ages 3-4. The U7 Program (IP) is for players ages 5-6. U8 (formerly Tyke) is for players aged 7.  These programs are to learn the basic skills required to play the game, this is not a “learn to skate” program. There are no league games in these divisions and all ice times are ½ ice.  U9 is for players aged 8.  U9 will be half ice games until Jan 15th and then transitioned into full ice.
Anyone wishing to try out for our Travel Program must indicate such at registration. A fee of $75.00 must be paid at time of registration. An A/E Program may be offered in various divisions if there is a high interest of players attending Rep tryouts and a talent pool is evident upon the opinion of outside evaluators. Final decision will be made by divisional conveners. Players must be released from the Rep. tryouts in order to be eligible to try out for A/E. There is no guarantee of an A/E team.. We will also be offering a U21 Rep. team if enough interest is shown.

Bond Hours
 There will be a Jersey/Performance/Security Bond requirement of $200 per family to be paid at registration via post dated cheque for March 30/22. Each family is required to complete volunteer time with their team, as well as within the organization. A minimum 10 hours for U9 to U18 is required for the first player and 5 hours for each additional player in the same family. Once your team hours are fulfilled, it will be a shared assigned effort by all team parents to fulfill the remaining volunteer duties for their child’s team. U7, U8 and U21 are exempt but parents are encouraged to volunteer when required. There are many opportunities to earn hours within the organization for all, cheques will be cashed if requirement not met.  Bond cheques must be received prior to your child’s first ice time and if not received they will not be permitted on ice until such is received, drop off or mail to 200 King Hiram St. Ingersoll, Ont. N5C 1L8.
