Hockey Winnipeg is excited to announce the creation of our U11 Recreational Program for the upcoming 2022-2023 season. Our goal is to introduce the sport of hockey to new families and grow the game by breaking down the barriers that are typically associated with hockey, such as cost, accessibility, and commitment level. By providing an affordable and low time commitment program, we hope to attract families who may not necessarily be ready to commit to organized hockey just yet but are looking to get involved. We are opening registration next week on Tuesday, August 16th and would love to spread the word out in our communities. If you are able to share the information below, as well as the photo attached onto your association’s website/social media channels, we would really appreciate it.

Hockey Winnipeg is excited to announce the creation of our U11 Recreational Program in hopes of providing an accessible and inclusive introduction to the sport of hockey for youth ages 9-10 years old. The recreational program is a co-ed, 20-week program beginning in October and runs until the middle of March. It will consist of 1 game per week, played every Saturday at St. Vital arena with an emphasis on basic skill development and games in a fun and relaxed environment. All skill levels are welcomed with no previous hockey experience needed. Due to limited space availability, players cannot simultaneously play organized hockey and participate in the recreational program. The cost of the program is approximately $350 per player. Registration will begin on Tuesday, August 16th with more details to follow. If you have any questions, please reach out to Grassroots Program Coordinator, Janelle Forcand at grassroots@hockeywinnipeg.ca or 204-784-5454 ext 4.
