Angels Free Power Skating Program Announcement

The Vancouver Angels will be giving all of it's teams a jump start this September, as we announce that all teams will receive free Power Skating or Skating Instruction from one of our Development Partners

The Angels have partnered up with Leslie Global Sports, UBC Hockey, and other skating instructors to offer skating instruction from the experts

As we have extra ice in Sept before the regular season starts in October (for most teams), your team will receive extra ice times over the next few weeks, dedicated to skating instruction

Any practices marked as 'Power Skating' will be one of these sessions

After September, the Angels will continue to offer free Power Skating during early morning sessions throughout the season.  These were offered last year, and were a great success.  These early morning sessions will be completely optional and free.

If you have any questions, please contact us at: info@vancouvergirlshockey.com

Angels Rep Teams (Peewee, Bantam, Midget) Status Maintained

Preliminary assessments of all declared teams have been completed, and we are satisfied that all teams will be competitive in their division.

As our Rep teams have been declared, all players wanting to play Rep within Vancouver must register and join our Rep tryouts by September 1st, 2015.  Any players attempting to transfer after this date will be classified as "Special Player Movement".

If you are a player, currently registered to a male association or private club, you will not be permitted by PCAHA to transfer to an Angel Rep or House team after September 1st 2015.   You will have to remain with your non-Angel association team for the balance of the season.

 

Therefore, If you are contemplating playing female hockey this season, we urge you to respect the September 1st deadline.

The (October) deadline stated on the "Special Player Transfer" form from BC Hockey is an old form stating the incorrect deadline date. The correct date is September 1, 2015.

If you have any questions about this, please contact our Registrar: registrar@vancouvergirlshockey.com

 

 

Angels Season Starts Tuesday Sept 8th!

The first September schedule will be posted shortly, and Player Medical Forms must be completed.

Please complete the form, and send to our Registrar: registrar@vancouvergirlshockey.com before your first practice.

The Player Medical Form can be found here: http://vancouvergirlshockey.com/registration/medical_form
