2023/2024 Season: U8 & U9 Programming Update
Greetings 2015, 2016 and 2017 Players and Parents, We know there have been many questions and concerns regarding next year's hockey programming and we appreciate your patience while we have worked with our governing bodies.

Today, we are excited to announce that there will be tiered teams next year at the U8 and U9 age groups that will compete in a formal, competitive league made up of Burlington, Milton and Oakville (more associations may be added). 


In addition, these teams will have the opportunity to compete in 3 scheduled Jamborees and a number of exhibition games with Alliance, MHL and GTHL teams. Here are the highlights:


·  Tiered teams based on both ability and interest. Those that want a more competitive, advanced, intensive program will have that option. Those that want a game and a practice a week will have that option. 

·  A tiered league made up of teams from Burlington, Milton and Oakville with up to 40 games.

·  Exhibition games vs. Alliance, MHL and GTHL teams.

·  Up to 3 Jamboree weekends.

·  Enhanced development opportunities with professional, experienced hockey instructors.

·  OMHA, OHF and Hockey Canada certified league vs. the challenges of private outlaw options.

Final details, costs and registration timing will be released shortly.


For now, what you need to know is, we have heard what you want and we will deliver. 


Quite simply, there will be no better U8 and U9 programming available anywhere and there will be something for everyone from Advanced to Recreational!


Enjoy the rest of the season and thanks for being Rangers!
