Updated November 25, 2018:
The ball hockey season runs from immediately after spring break until mid to late June. The divisional playoffs start mid June with the top team in each division participating in the Provincial Championships the last week of June into the July long weekend. We also have teams regularly attend the Western Challenge Cup (WCC) which will take place in mid-July.
Ball hockey is played in an ice rink (on dry floor). The home arenas for TCMBHA are Port Moody Rec Centre (Rinks A1 & A2), Coquitlam Poirier Sports Center (Rec Rink, Main Arena and Forum, and Port Coquitlam Recreation Centre. Away games are played throughout the Lower Mainland and travel to other Lower Mainland / Fraser Valley arenas is expected at least once per week (week day or weekend).
As this is a competitive League, schedules are not available until the season starts so, we CANNOT tell you in advance the day, times and locations of your child's games and practices. You can expect to play, on average, three times per week - one home game per week, one away game and one practice - some weeks have an extra game.
Games typically are scheduled after 6pm on weekdays and or anytime during the weekend. Practices can be as early as 4pm on a weekday and / or can be scheduled for weekends. Schedules are not developed until late March, therefore until the schedules are developed and teams are formed we do not know what teams will play or practice when.
All players will be required to participate in an evaluation session. Please be sure to check our Evaluation Information page for further information on the evaluation and MANDATORY equipment check (see our Equipment page for list of equipment).
