As information is finalized updates will be provided. Should players wish to play for higher level teams than can be offered by the HMIP, the HMIP is committed to working with all neighbouring Minor Hockey Associations to grant player releases to attend double letter camps in other associations. Please note the double letter selection process across all neighbouring Minor Hockey Associations won’t begin until September 21st. All local Minor Hockey Associations are in a similar warm-up period as that of the HMIP currently where players are to remain with their home associations.
- More information about the selection processes, number of teams per age category, and amount of players per team will be made available next week via the website
