We had 7 great sessions at Lambton Arena. Thanks to the City of Toronto for providing us with terrific ice times again this year.

We had four Monday and three Wednesday dates all in prime time at Central or Lambton Arena in Etobicoke, are both very nice rinks and were extremely fortunate to get such terrific ice times.

The kids met the Latvian National Standing Amputee Team - ranked 4th in the World and will play in the Olympics and World Championships! They played the Toronto Latvian Baltic League team to a 2-2 draw after our practice, a hard fought game.

The same rules apply as last year except we will be collecting rink fees up front, primarily to reduce our administration time and ensure no shows are still collected. We'd like to keep the fees at $90 for all 6 sessions and would therefore like to see everyone back from last year and gladly welcome any new players too. The rates we were charged escaped the proposed rental increase, so take advantage of this terrific value.
Season closed: Practices were held at Erin Mills Twin Arena, Monday April 2nd, 16th and 23rd and was open to boys and girls of all skill levels.
Thanks to all for making this new programme a success!
