Welcome Pup (U7)Parents!
Welcome to your first year in Cranbrook Minor Hockey for the 2021-2022 Season!
*For children born in 2016 (They must be 5 on or before Dec 31st 2021)
*Full hockey gear is required with the exception of a mouth guard although it is recommended
-Helmet (labelled with last name on it; as simple as a piece of tape and a sharpie works!)
-Water bottle -with extended spout is very helpful so they can hydrate through their helmet as they cannot be removed on the ice.
It is a good idea to label all of their gear
*Hockey socks and jerseys will be provided at the beginning of the season. Socks are yours to keep but JERSEYS NEED TO BE RETURNED TO YOUR MANAGER at the end of the season. Any name banners added need to be removed. If the jersey is lost or damaged you may be required to pay for the replacement.
*The season typically starts at the beginning of October and ends beginning to mid March
*There are no out of town games or tournaments in this division
*Typically 1-2 ice times per week. Days and times will be decided prior to the beginning of each season when number of kids and number of teams is determined
*If you are interested in volunteering as a coach please see our 'Coaches Corner' section for the requirements
*If you are interested in volunteering as a team manager, please connect with your coach or the Initiation Division Head at firstname.lastname@example.org
*Coaches and managers will use TeamSnap to communicate to parents and players. Downloading this free app is recommended.
Remember, FUN is the name of the game!
HAVE A GREAT SEASON!
