Welcome to the Home of the Jr Admirals

August Youth Camp

The August Hockey Camp has been moved to August 17-18-19.  Sessions will begin at 8:30am and end at 11:30am.

We have to move the Camp dates to August 17-18-19.  The current equipment updates at Iceland have caused a number of delays and we will have to move the camp to Aug 17-18-19. 
Camp times are Friday and Sunday 8:30-11:30 and Saturday 1:00-4:00.
Sorry for any inconvenience and if you are unable to make it let me know and I will credit the fee immediately.  With the installation of the new water tower, ice conditions are coming back to normal but we need to catch up on some earlier camps.
Cost is $125 for 3 sessions and $100 for 2 sessions.

ICELAND MAINTENANCE UPDATE

Iceland is preparing to replace the ice making equipment soon.  The current water cooling ice system that uses compressors, chiller barrel and a water tower, is being converted to an air cooled system which does not use compressors or a water tower. This is a major upgrade to the ice making system.  In preparation for this,  major electrical and piping work must be done.  As a result Iceland will be operating on a reduced schedule for the next couple of weeks.  The Spring Pond hockey program will not be affected by this. Iceland will be posting their activity schedules at www.iceland.goalline.ca.  

SELECT AND TOURNAMENT TEAMS

Players interested in participating in the Fall Season Select and Tournament teams are invited to attend the interest skates May 5th and 6th.  The following is the schedule:
