East Hants Minor Ball Hockey League

Welcome to our first year!

The first season of the East Hants Minor Ball Hockey League will begin Sunday 23 April 2:00 pm to 6:00 pm and end late June 2023. All games will be played at the East Hants Sportsplex. The fee is $165 per player.

Each team will play 13 sessions. One game will be played each Sunday afternoon. A few additional games will be played on either Saturday morning or on a weeknight. Younger players will play earlier time slots. Note that our schedule will be impacted by arena availability.

Games will be played 4×4 plus a goalie, cross rink. Team jersey will be provided to all and returned at the end of the season. The jerseys are to be returned “clean” at the end of the season. If a jersey is lost and not returned the parents must agree to pay a$30 replacement change.

The emphasis will be on fun, fitness, sportsmanship, learning and improving basic hockey skills and of course “meeting new buddies”!

Volunteer Coaches: As with all minor hockey we rely on parents or older siblings (14 or older) to serve as volunteer coaches. A coach clinic will be held in early April, and you will be supported throughout the season. It is essential that we recruit 2-3 coaches per team. That will make it comfortable should a coach need to miss a game. Please join us as a volunteer coach and indicate that during your players online registration. Your partnership will be greatly appreciated! 

Referees: We will train and hire young hockey players who play in our u17 division to referee the younger divisions. This is a great leadership opportunity, and all refs will be paid per game.

A limit of 44 players per age division. When we reach that number, additional players will be placed on a wait list. first come first served!

All divisions are co-ed, and we will play the following age groups

U8 (2017,2016,2015)

U10 (2013, 2014)

U12 (2011, 2012)

U14 (2009,2010)

U17 (2006, 2007, 2008)
