When are my child's practice times?
 The hockey club, like other sporting clubs on the North Shore requests field time from the West Vancouver and North Vancouver districts. Once this field time is allocated, and teams are finalized we ask each team (U9 and up) to submit their request for their practice time. The manager (on behalf of the coach and players) submits their top 3 requested times. As soon as these times are allocated and available, managers communicate the practice time to the team. Each team has one (1 hour) practice per week.
We would typically know practice times a week or two prior to the practice season commencing.
When do I register and where do I get the registration forms.
 Registration for Spring League opens November 1st and closes Jan 31 for girls & Feb 15th for boys. Some age groups may remain open for registration after this if space is available. All registration is done online from the 'Girls & Boys' page or our website.
