Respect in Sport for Parents Course
The NOHA is requiring all parents of players in hockey to take this respect in sports course.
It was introduced out west and showed a measurable decrease in the harassment
 and abuse of officials, coaches, and other volunteers.
One parent of each player must take the course for the player to fully participate in hockey events.
The course will only have to be taken once.
Please click the link below to register yourself and take the course.
The course costs a nominal fee of $12 plus tax. This fee will not be reimbursed by minor hockey.


Please click here to register and take the course.

New to hockey and need help outfitting your player?

Elliot Lake Minor Hockey and its partner, RBC, understand it is hard for parents of modest means to justify spending hard earned money on equipment needed for a child to participate in a new sport.  Knowing that the child may not choose to continue with the sport adds to the reluctance to spend the funds.  To help families give their players a chance to enjoy Canada’s national winter pastime, the ELMHA started an equipment lending library with a generous donation from the Royal Bank of Canada.

 

Donations of used equipment in excellent condition have been added to the large supply of new equipment purchased with the funds from RBC.  There is enough equipment to completely outfit many players.  Although the size of the equipment is targeting mostly younger players, there is equipment available for older players too.  Goalie equipment is also available. 

 

Please contact the ELMHA Equipment Manager, Julien Bouchard, for more information about accessing the library.
He can be reached by email at julien@wolverinecomputers.ca

 Need Help with Registration Fees & Equipment
 
 

 

KidSport believes that no child should be left on the sidelines and that all should be given the opportunity to experience the positive benefits of organized sport. KidSport accomplishes this by providing financial support for registration fees and/or equipment purchases through grants that go directly to the families in need.

A message from the guy who works on maintaining this site.

 
This website is very much a "work-in-progress" and will always be changing,  Hopefully for the better.  Check back often to see how things progress over time.
 
It is my hope that this website will eventually become the first place parents and players go to for information about minor hockey in Elliot Lake and the surrounding area. 
 
Please remember that this website is being created by an unpaid volunteer who is doing it in their spare time.  I welcome all suggestions for additions and improvements.  I also ask for your patience as this site evolves over time.
 
Thanks,
John Tyler
