General Information

The CRMHA offers a Female Hurricane Hockey Program to girls aged 5 through 18. The season begins after the September long weekend and runs until the end of March.

Each team will get one practice per week, likely on Mondays (subject to change once the ice schedule is finalized),  with the chance for more practices on Saturdays/Sundays if ice time is available. 

Please note that Girls at the U11, U13, U15, U18 age division could have practice as early as 5:45 AM and U18 might have practice as late as 9:00pm


For divisions U11, U13,U15, and U18 there are up to 12 league games per season. 

Traveling up and down the Island is necessary for 6 away games, typically on Saturdays or Sundays, with the possiblity of  2-6 exhibition games, and 1-4 tournaments throughout the season.

Female Players have 3 options for registration including the option to choose JUST the Female Hurricane Hockey Program should you wish. 

1) CO-ED HOUSE ONLY - You can register for co-ed recreation hockey, choosing the registration package RECREATION CO-ED LEAGUE - this does not include the Female Hurricane Hockey Program. (Typically, 2-3 ice times/week including one early morning ice per/week)

2) FEMALE HURRICANE HOCKEY PROGRAM ONLY - For this option choose the package FEMALE HURRICANES PROGRAM (Typically 1-2 ice times/week *possible one early morning ice time/week)

Should we have enough registered females to form Hurricane Travel Teams in U11, U13, U15, U18 they will play in the Female Island League (VIAHA) which is typically 12 games. 6 of those games are at home (here in Campbell River) and the other six could be in: Port McNeil, Parksville, Nanaimo, Duncan, Victoria (additional travel expenses many be required for hotel if needed) 


3) REGISTER FOR BOTH CO-ED & FEMALE - You can register for both Recreation hockey, and Female Hurricane Hockey Program, and would choose the registration package RECREATION CO-ED LEAGUE PLUS FEMALE DEV (Typically, 3-5 ice times/week, including early mornings. Ice time conflicts - Female games takes priority over co-ed ice time 

** Dual Roster is needed in order for girls to play on both a coed team and Hurricanes. Parents signature means your daughter will attend every female league game, tournament or practice ice that may be at the same time as coed times.  Failure to do this, could result in your daughter being removed from the girls roster. **

Girls can join the Female Hurricane Hockey Program at any age and with any amount of hockey experience.  No prior skating experience is required!

The number of teams each season depends on registration.  We anticipate one team at U7/U9, one to two teams at U11, one team at U13 and one team U15 and are hoping for a U18 team. Girls are placed on teams based on prior season coach ratings together with NEW player ratings assigned.  The goal is to achieve balanced teams.

*If we do not have enough players for a certain age group, players could move up or down as needed in order to form teams. There is also the possibility of having Port Hardy girls or Comox girls join our program to make teams. Or there is a possibility of our girls joining the Comox Lightning*

Parents are always asked beforehand if this is what they want and we try our best to make things work at home first and foremost before looking elsewhere.  


U7/U9/U11 - All players rotate in the goalie position - each girl will have the opportunity to play goalie, unless there is a full time goalie(s)
