As we anxiously await the start of our 2012-2013 House League Season, I wanted to take a moment to personally welcome back all returning families and also welcome the new families to our Falcons Hockey program. We are looking forward to another great year of Falcon’s hockey!
Please note- full equipment is required for all preseason skates (see link at bottom of page for equipment list) and the player must be registered for the season.
Training (evaluation) Camps will provide our hockey staff with the opportunity to properly evaluate the kids in order to select balanced and competitive teams. We will then go right into team practices and games. We understand it is difficult to make all of the open hockey and training camp sessions, but please do your best to attend as many as possible, especially the training camps.
Your one registration fee takes care of all preseason clinics / camps. Once you are registered for the season you are all set. There is no need to register for any preseason clinic/camp again. This is all included in the one-time registration.
2012 – ‘13 Falcon House Season - Goalie Discount Policy
Families with a full-time regular goalie in the 2012-2013 Falcon hockey season may be eligible to receive a $250 discount against their paid fees (squirts and above). Please indicate at the time of registration that your son/daughter is interested in being a full time goalie and if they have their own goalie equipment. Discounts will be confirmed for qualifying players at mid-season and distributed at that time in the form of a check from the Falcon Hockey Association. We do not have the ability to issue credit on credit cards.
Following training camps the rosters for all teams will be posted on the website soon after evaluations have been completed. There will not be any extra fees for these sessions for registered players. Registration is NOW OPEN.
Following team selections, the coaches for each team will be contacting the parents to introduce themselves. We will also be advising when we will have a short parent meeting for each level. We will be reviewing the season schedule and answer any questions you may have at that time.
The Training (evaluation) Camp schedule is being finalized and will be posted in the next few days. We will be posting the team schedules for all levels as we get closer to the beginning of the season. Please note these times are subject to change so please continue to check the Falcons' website weekly.

When does the season end?
The season concludes with the Falcons Super Championship Weekend his year scheduled for mid-March, 2013. House playoff games are held on a variety of weekends and weekdays. PLEASE NOTE - All teams make the playoffs and to accommodate this large number of participants there will be games on weeknights during the playoffs - at all levels. Peewees and Bantams also participate in NSYHL playoffs. However, we do not have details of the NSYHL plans yet. Last year we did not receive those details until late January or early February. Typically the NSYHL playoffs run from mid-February to mid-March.
My son/daughter is just starting out – is there a place for him/ her?
Absolutely! The goals of the House Program are to have fun and to learn the game of hockey. Everyone is welcomed!
Equipment? What about Equipment??
Please see the link at the bottom of the page to download an Equipment Checklist
Does everyone play equally? What if my son/daughter is not as good as other kids?
As above, the goals of our House program are to have fun and learn this great game. Our philosophy is that all the kids play equally.
Is there an opportunity for additional ice time throughout the season?
Depending upon ice availability we look forward to having power skating and/or open hockey throughout the season – again depending on ice availability.
Is there a House Multi-Player Discount Policy
Families with three or more participants in the 2011-2012 Falcon hockey season will receive a $250 discount against their paid fees. The discount will be paid in the form of a check from the Falcon Hockey Association on or about December 1, 2011. We do not have the ability to issue credit on credit cards.
Can I sign up my child with a friend?
Our goal is to make equally balanced and competitive teams. As a result, not all requests may be met.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR INTEREST IN FALCON’S HOCKEY!
 These informal sessions are to provide the kids with the opportunity to just get back on the ice in a safe and supervised setting.
 Training Camps are used to evaluate the players in order to make equally competitive and balanced teams.
Our House organizational goals are to teach, have fun and provide a safe environment. I’m sure each and every one of you would be very disappointed to learn of a kid not coming back to hockey because of a bad experience with you as the coach.
See Bottom of Page for answers to some commonly asked questions. Maybe we've answered yours!
