What equipment do I need?

  • Hockey elbow pads

  • Hockey jersey

  • Hockey jock or jill - Pelvic protector (shorts with built in are most common)

  • Hockey shin pads

  • Hockey shoulder pads

  • Hockey mouth guard

Where are games and practices?

» Your home games may be at either the North Surrey Recreation Centre, Newton Recreation Centre, or Surrey Sport & Leisure Centre. Practices may be held at those arenas as well.

Are there practices in the morning?

» Yes. During the weekdays, there are teams that have practice times sometimes as early as 5:30 am. During the weekend, practice times start around 6:00 am.

Can I be on the same team as my friend?

» Well it depends. We can't guarantee that you'll be on the same team as your friend. If you both try out for a Rep team and make the team, then you're on the same team. If you're in C Division and a coach drafts you both for the team, then you're on the same team.

Who do I have to contact to get a release form from Surrey Minor Hockey?

» You need to contact the Registrar.
