Female Hurricane Hockey Program 2023-24
The CRMHA offers a Female Hurricane Hockey Program to girls aged 5 through 18. The season runs September long weekend and ends at the end of March.
One practice per week likely on Mondays this year with the chance for more practices on Saturdays/Sundays if ice time is available.
For divisions U11, U13 and U15, there are up to 12 league games per season. Travel up and down the Island. Typically on Saturdays & Sundays. Plus 2-6 exhibition games and 1-3 tournaments throughout the season.
Female Players have 4 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)
YOU MUST TRAVEL TO AWAY GAMES TO PICK THIS OPTION, NOT JUST SHOW UP FOR HOME GAMES.
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 game takes priority over co-ed ice time (attendance mandatory*)
** 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. **
4) REGISTER FOR FEMALE SKATING ONLY - NOT ON A TEAM. (POSSIBLE TO AP IF NEEDED) Don't want to play coed, and don't have the time to travel for games, but would still like to improve your skills and be with the girls? Then this is the option for you.
Girls can join the Female Hurricane Hockey Program at any age and with any amount of hockey experience. No prior skating experience is required!
Girls at the U11, U13, U15, U18 age division do have occasional 6 AM practices.
CRMHA makes all attempts for the divisions below assuming that numbers permit - should we not meet numbers, age groups are combined and all efforts made to accommodate all girls wanting to play!

The number of teams each season depends on registration. We anticipate one team at U7/U9, one team U11, 1-2 teams U13 and one team U15, U18 (combined U15/U18). Girls are placed on teams based on prior season coach ratings together with NEW player ratings assigned. The goal is to achieve balanced teams. *or our governing body VIAHA will come down to a practice or scrimmage and evaluate all the players to make teams.
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)
U13/U15 - Should a full time goalie register she will be assigned as the full time goalie for the team. If no goalie - All players rotate in the goalie position - each girl will have the opportunity to play goalie
** any girl who registers as a full time goalie, will receive a discount off their registration fees**.
