2022-2023 SEASON

If you are looking for information regarding your child's evaluations your FIRST point of contact is your "Age Division Coordinator".

When emailing your Age Division Coordinators you can send your email to both contacts in your division.

If there is no Coordinator Name listed for your Age Group, then contact the Director of Evaluations or Asst. Director of Evaluations for assistance.

To access the Contact List click the Evaluation Coordinators contact button above

Reminder that if there is no volunteer Coordinator in your age group then that means we are still looking for help!  Could that be you??   If you are able to help volunteer in one of the many positions please click the link below to identify what you are interested in and send us your information.

Pathway Skates

The Player Pathway Program is supported by the Hockey Canada Long-Term Player Development Model. This framework provides the guiding principles for age appropriate and skill specific programming for all players in Hockey Canada’s youth hockey system.

Hockey Canada mandates that every U11 player must be provided a minimum of four ice sessions prior to formal tryouts starting. A player’s first experience in the new hockey season should not be a formal tryout. The Pathway skates give players the opportunity to get back on the ice in a more player friendly environment helping even the playing field, as not all players go to hockey schools or prep camps prior to the start of the season.

This is open to fully registered participants at no cost!

Southwest Hockey is excited to announce that we have extended this opportunity to the U9, U13, U15 & U18 divisions as well!!

Checking Clinics for U15 (2009)

It is a requirement in Southwest that every 1st year U15 (2009) player attend a checking clinic PRIOR to their evaluations. Southwest Hockey provides this clinic for FREE for registered participants.

Each session covers the four (4) pillars of teaching checking progressively, as designed by Hockey Canada.

Positioning & Angling, Stick Checks, Contact Confidence and Body Checking / Contact

If your player attended a checking clinic over the spring/summer, send proof of the checking clinic to the Administrator. With proof your player would then not be required to take the SW Checking Clinic.

To sign up contact the Administrator at admin@southwesthockey.ca
