Bearcat House League System


U7/U9 programs – for players who are U9 and under (2015 and younger) and who can skate independently.
This program shares ice with the U9 competitive (rep) team (helps save on expenses)

· How much you wish your daughter to participate is up to you
· one skate per week
  · two skates or more per week
· Your registration fee will be determined by this (fee TBD)

For our U7/U9 program we use a Cross Ice format for our program.

The aim of the Cross-ice program is to encourage an environment in which the children can learn the basic skills without the distraction that is often associated with an over emphasis on winning.
· The objectives of the Cross Ice program is:
· Stress participation, fun and skill development
· To provide a step towards a full-ice program
· Modify the playing environment to meet the needs of younger players
· Increase opportunities for younger players to touch and handle the puck
· Increase the practice to game ratio to a minimum of three practices to one game
· Provide a positive environment for learning the fundamental skills of hockey
· Improve the utilization of ice time

“It makes no sense for kids to play organized games until they have reasonable mastery of skating, puck handing, passing and shooting.”
-Dr. Murray Smith, Sports Psychologist Edmonton Oilers/Kelowna Rockets

Bearcat Monday Night House League - open to U11, U13 and U15 


We just want to point out that our house league is mixed ages. We suggest that any U9 and younger girls be part of our U7/U9 development program…see the U7/U9 House League


Our Bearcat Monday Night House League program is on Mondays 6:30 game times at the Quinte Sports and Wellness Centre – Mackay Arena

With our current registration numbers we are only able to ice 2 teams so we play inter squad games plus have practices at World Elite and we managed to make this a very enjoyable season for our girls.


Cost is $350 and we play from end of Sept to March Break with a 1-2 week break at Christmas.

Bearcat Senior House League – U18 and older


Our Bearcat Senior House League program is on Tuesdays 8pm & 9pm games at the Quinte Sports and Wellness Centre – Mackay Arena

Our Bearcat Senior House League consists of four teams on a first come first serve basis…registration wise 

Each team has a maximum 15 players and one goalie.

Our Senior House League is a “Recreational League” for players U18 and older (there are exceptions to us)

We want to point out that this league has a large range of skills…from new to hockey to rep players returning to the area


This league will have zero tolerance for body contact, rough play, bad language, etc. This is a league where our players come out one night a week to play some hockey with friends and cheer on both their team as well as their opposition.  We do not keep stats and winning every game is not our focus, we like to focus on our players coming out for some great exercise while playing the game they love. Everyone needs to get up in the morning with their kids and/or go to work or both, so we don’t need anything to happen that will prevent this.  There are other leagues around if you are looking for something more competitive. 


Cost is $350 and we play from end of Sept to March Break with a 1-2 week break at Christmas.
