Wild Rookies!!!! 
Wild Rookies is a program for young girls.  It is designed to introduce young players to the game of hockey.  The players will spend approximately 50 minutes on the ice each week learning the fundamentals of the game from skating to stick handling to the game itself.  We will start the year with fundamental sessions and gradually introduce the game concept through scrimmages and exhibition games against other rookie teams from neighbouring centres.

The emphasis of this program is fun and basic skill development!!

Who is this program for?
The Rookie Wild program is for girls age 4 to 6 as of December 31st.  Players who are 6 years old also have the option of playing Novice Local League depending on their skill level.

What is the cost of the Wild Rookies program?
For the 2019-20 season, the cost of the Wild Rookie program is $210.

How do I register?
Our Registration page on this website contains the registration information for this season.  You can also contact our registrar at [email protected].

What if hockey is so much fun that your 6 year old daughter asks to play Novice Local League after you have registered in the Wild Rookie program?
If, before the end of October, you feel your 6 year old daughter should be in the Novice Local League program rather than taking the Wild Rookie program, you can contact our registrar at [email protected] to determine whether there is space available.  The additional fees for Novice Local League will be payable at that time if a spot is available.
