Beulah Hockey

The Vision

Beulah Hockey is built upon the principles of the Gospel & our aim is to foster a community that offers families an affordable alternative for a structured hockey program. Simultaneously, we strive to provide children with a secure and enjoyable space to develop their skills in hockey, become integral members of a team, cultivate good sportsmanship, and nurture leadership qualities.

 

Beulah Hockey’s 3 Core Values:

  • Be a Great Teammate

The Beulah Hockey Program

The Beulah Hockey program was established with the purpose of offering young athletes, who are not engaged in other leagues, an opportunity to participate in a relaxed, non-contact, and enjoyable program. Despite its laid-back nature, the program still emphasizes and supports skill enhancement and personal growth. Moreover, we strive to instill a profound comprehension of how God desires us to exemplify teamwork and leadership not only within the realm of sports but also in our wider communities.

 

Contrary to many minor hockey programs that demand significant time commitments from both children and their parents, Beulah Hockey has been designed as a singular day/time program. We prioritize the belief that sports should not dominate our lives. By offering a streamlined schedule, we underscore the importance of balancing athletic pursuits with other aspects of life.

 

During our skate sessions, we generally divide the time into two segments. The first half is dedicated to practice and drills, while the second half is dedicated to gameplay. A devotional is shared in the dressing room prior to each skate.

Beulah Hockey Age Groups

U7 – “Novice”
1 hour skate time
Oct 2017 – Sep 2019 (5-7 years)

In order to ensure a smoother transition into our Novice program, we highly recommend that new players have some prior skating experience. While we focus on hockey development rather than basic skating skills, we encourage children to participate in dedicated learn-to-skate programs before joining our hockey program. This approach allows us to provide a more comprehensive hockey experience tailored to the needs of our participants.

 

U10 – “Atom”
1.5 hour skate time
Oct 2014 – Sep 2017 (8-10 years)

As our young athletes progress in age, our skate program becomes more intensive, catering to their advancing skills and capabilities. During this stage, we incorporate drills specifically designed to meet their growing needs. Furthermore, we introduce a greater emphasis on game structure, providing them with valuable experience in applying their skills within a competitive setting.

 

U14 – “PeeWee”
1.5 hour skate time
Oct 2010 – Sep 2014 (11-14 years)

In the upcoming season, we are excited to announce that our PeeWee group will now include athletes up to the age of 14. To accommodate this extended age range, we have planned two separate skate times and will assign the children to groups based on their age and skill level. Within the PeeWee groups, our drills will emphasize game structure, zone plays, and advanced skill techniques. This approach ensures a progressive and tailored development experience for our young athletes.

The maximum age allowed is 14, with participants needing to be born before October 2009.

Can my child play ‘up’ or ‘down’ a team to their age group?

 

Our program is flexible and open to making adjustments as necessary. After one or two skate sessions, our experienced coaches thoroughly assess each child’s skill level and are attentive to their needs. If it is determined that adjustments are required to better align with the child’s abilities, we will make the necessary changes. Our priority is to provide an optimal learning experience for every participant by ensuring they are appropriately challenged and supported.

As part of our registration process, we provide children with the opportunity to make one friend request. When constructing our rosters, we strive to create an environment where children feel at ease and can perform their best. We take great care in placing them in positions that promote their comfort and overall well-being.While we try to accommodate every request, sometimes the friend request will not be able to be completed.

What is the Beulah hockey refund policy?

 

Beulah Hockey offers a full registration refund to children/parents who choose to leave the program, but this refund is only applicable if the decision is made before the child’s fourth skate. We do not provide partial refunds unless there are exceptional circumstances involved.

 

Can I just drop my child off at the rink and run errands?

 

Parents or a designated guardian must remain in the arena as stated by our insurance policy. We prioritize the safety and well-being of our participants, and having a responsible adult in attendance is a crucial aspect of our program. And trust us, you will want to watch as it is exciting to see your child improve and have fun.

 

What is the dressing room etiquette?

 

To ensure an organized and efficient experience, we kindly request that only one parent or adult assists each child in the dressing room. It would be greatly appreciated if players could be fully prepared for their skate session at least 10 minutes prior, allowing the coach to effectively discuss the week’s devotional. For your convenience, we can sometimes suggest bringing your child to the rink partially dressed or mostly dressed, with only the need to put on their skates, helmet, and gloves at the facility. This approach can facilitate a quicker and smoother preparation process.

While we understand the excitement of family and friends in supporting your children on the ice, we kindly ask that everyone else waits in designated areas such as the lobby, stands, or viewing area. The dressing room is strictly reserved for participants and their designated helpers; it is not intended for spectators. Lastly, to maintain a clean and safe environment, please refrain from bringing non-practice items such as strollers into the dressing rooms.

 

Are the rules the same as mainstream hockey?

 

Yes, the rules in our program align with mainstream hockey. As children progress through the program, we gradually introduce them to more advanced rules commonly found in mainstream hockey, including penalties, offsides, icing, and other key aspects of the game. This approach helps players develop a deeper understanding of the sport and prepares them for competitive play in line with standard hockey rules.
