CAL Hockey Registration

Registration for the 2023-24 Church Athletic League Season – Online Registration Now Available  

Planning is well underway for our 2023-24 hockey season. Registration fees for the upcoming season have been set for each of our house league hockey divisions and posted on our Registration Page.  

Our online registration is now available through the Hockey Canada/My Spordle website.                    Link to our Online Registration click here  

It is important to register your player(s) as early as possible. Registration is now OPEN – Both online or using the downloadable printed form. Registering early will not only increase the likelihood that you can secure a spot for your player for the coming season, but it will also allow us to secure the needed ice time to run our hockey programs.  Please note:

  • We are currently accepting registrations for house league hockey, pre-season skills sessions, and our Panthers/Player Development program. Please note that the online registration program requires a separate registration for each program. 
  • Multi family member discounts (3 or more players) should automatically be applied for your full season/house league programs at the time of registration.
  • We are continuing to offer substantial fee reductions for goalies at the U11, U13, U15 and U18 levels.  

We will post updates to the website if there are any changes (we are not expecting any changes) as we get closer to the beginning of the season.  If you have any questions in the meantime, please contact us by email at CAL Office and someone will get back to you as soon as possible.  Access to the Kingston Memorial Centre is somewhat “restricted” during the daytime in the early summer months. The CAL office reopens on Monday, August 14th.

 Link to the Online Registration here 

The online registration was revamped by Hockey Canada last year. There have been a couple of updates over the past year and overall you should be able to manage all of your hockey registrations from your one family account. 

2023-24 Registration Form   Open & Print a Paper Registration Form

While online registration is the preferred option, we understand that it may not work for everyone.  If you are registering a player who played in a different organization last year, please contact us by email at CAL Office before attempting online registration and we will assist you with the process.  For players who are not able to register online for any other reason, you will need to download and print our Paper Registration Form, fill it out completely, and you can email the form as an attachment or mail the completed form to us at the address on the form.  Access to the CAL office is “somewhat restricted” during the daytime in the early summer months, as the building is not staffed. Please understand there will be a delay in processing mailed registrations.

What to Expect This Season

Here is What to Expect this Season

As we get closer to the start of our upcoming season – your two most frequently asked questions are answered below

What will the on-ice product look like?

  • 5-on-5 full-ice hockey for ages U11 and up
  • U9 will begin with half ice games and transition to full ice games on Jan. 15th
  • U8 will be a full season of half ice games & practices
  • U7 has one ice time per week teaching the fundamentals of hockey & skating
  • Full-sized teams (maximum 15 skaters and 2 goalies)
  • Traditional game play rules 

What facility protocols are in place?

The City of Kingston and KFL&A Public Health no longer have any restrictions/protocols in pace when using any of the City of Kingston arenas.

The most recent statement from the Province of Ontario (June 2022) – “With high vaccination rates and Ontario’s COVID-19 situation continuing to improve, most of the province’s remaining provincial masking requirements, including on public transit, will expire as of 12:00 a.m. on June 11, 2022. To continue providing an additional layer of protection for the most vulnerable, masks will still be required in long-term care and retirement homes. COVID-19 Province of Ontario website/news – COVID-19 public health measures and advice | COVID-19 (coronavirus) in Ontario  

These protocols are based on existing circumstances and are subject to change as the season progresses depending on the public health situation.
