Hockey sign-up starts

Minor hockey registration begins in Port Hardy and Port McNeill.

Minor hockey registration is under way in both Port Hardy and Port McNeill, with the season set to kick off in September.

 

PORT HARDY

A hockey swap of used equipment is a new addition to this season’s schedule of preseason events in Port Hardy, with gear exchange available at Don Cruickshank Memorial Arena the weekend of Sept. 14-16.

To exchange gear, drop off your used equipment at North Star Cycle and Sports. Be sure it is clean and in good condition, and attach a slip with your name and number and what you would like to receive in exchange.

Registration forms for the 2012-13 season are available at Jim’s Hardy Sports, North Star Cycle and Sports and at the front desk of the Recreation Centre. Head coach Brian Heller reminds families needing assistance with fees to apply for a KidSport grant. Applications are available online at www.kidsportcanada.ca by selecting B.C. from the “Find a Chapter” link.
