Beginners start here! If you’re new to hockey or you’ve been to learn to play and are ready to hit the ice, this is the league for you. The format is 5v5 on the small ice so expect plenty of puck time. Each team is equipped with mentors to help and encourage new players and the league comes with coached practice sessions each week in addition to league game play - two teams will play each week and one team will have coached practice. Team jerseys are provided by the captains and the level of play is monitored to ensure folks that should move up to higher leagues will do so.
