The Winakwa floor hockey program established in 2016 was traditionally set for kids aged 7-12. We have had 6 very successful seasons of both spring and fall sessions and this upcoming fall will be our 7th. We continue to grow from the original 16 participants in 2016 to the near 40 we finished with this past spring 2019 season. Last season the kids were split into two groups 7-9 and 10-12 and played on either half of the gym to improve parity. This has proven to be a recipe for success! We also have added a few practices as the season rolls along to try and add a teaching element to our program. All equipment is provided such as sticks, goalie pads and goalie helmet and the soft indoor balls we use. The only thing the participant needs is some clean indoor shoes and the willingness to have a good time. We cater to all skill levels as there is something to learn for all. Our program runs for a total of 10 weeks each session concluding with the always popular week 9 skills competition and week 10 game vs the parents!
We have now introduced a second time slot to include the kids that have graduated from our younger group. The time slots are Wednesdays from 5:00-6:00 for the kids aged 13-15 and 6:00-7:00 for the 7-12 year olds. The overall success of the new group depends solely on participation and registration numbers. We look forward to seeing you all in the upcoming fall session.
Cost of the program is $75.00 for the full 10 weeks which also includes the year end Winakwa floor hockey t-shirt for the kids and volunteer coaches.
