CanPowerSkate is geared to skaters aged approximately six or older who already have basic forward and backward skating skills (they must be able to skate the length of the rink using alternate strides) and are able to stop on command without use of the boards.

Respect In Sport
If the respect in sport question is hanging you up you can put in 12345 for now and complete it by Sept 1st.
Peewee and Atom
Team sizes are tight, If your child doesn’t register by June 30th we risk not having Peewee or Atom teams, and since Canmore’s registration deadline is the same as ours they won’t be in a position to take on many extra players. Register this week!
Last Year’s Initiation Team
You must register by June 30th for Novice so that we can submit our teams to the Rockies Hockey League.
Remember, refunds in full will be given if you withdraw your child before August 15th.

Hello Hockey Families,
It’s that time of year again! Online registration for the 2018-2019 season is open from June 1-30. Please register on time to avoid the $50 late fee and being placed on a waitlist for your intended program.
Program Information for all age divisions and 2018-19 fees can be found on our website at www.banffminorhockey.com
Please also remember to complete your Respect In Sport – Parent certification before online registration begins in June. As per the Hockey Alberta Bulletin, Respect In Sport Parent AND Respect In Sport Coach now have to be recertified every 4 years. Anyone who has completed this prior to 2015-16 must recertify RIS for the upcoming season and prior to registration. More information can be found on their website at https://www.hockeyalberta.ca/members/respect-sport/
