Ice is blocked and plans are created according to number of players enrolled for each level of play. Players wishing to move to a higher division after initial registration, should contact the office to determine if space is available. 

Sessions are used to determine the registrants ability to play at the desired level. Players are responsible for checking the website for assigned ice times.
All correspondence will happen via the website, no phone calls will be made.
It is strongly recommended that players confirm ice times 24 hours prior to ensure they have the most current information.
