Hi Parents/Athletes etc.,
Hope your summer is going well. We are now open to accepting registration for the first year of the Nova Scotia Blind Hockey. Our ice will be at the Shearwater Rink, Dartmouth and it will be Sunday evenings from 7:30 to 8:30 PM.
We have attached the 2017-18 season Registration Forms. Our season will start on September 10th this year and will go to March 25, 2018 for a total of 27 on ice sessions.
Registration will have two parts this year, one of insurance through Hockey Nova Scotia (see attached form) and the second part the registration of the athletes for Nova Scotia Blind Hockey through the attached form. We are hoping for free insurance from HNS for our start-up year and it will be confirmed later. The other option it would cost $25.00 per for insurance.
The second portion of registration involves filling out the attached form. Our Nova Scotia Blind Hockey registration fee will be $200.00 for this season.
Steve Coates as administrator will accept these registration forms and payment in the form of a cheque (Payable to Nova Scotia Blind Hockey ).
You may mail the completed forms with a cheque to the below address: Nova Scotia Blind Hockey C/O Steve Coates 43 Dorothea Drive Dartmouth, NS, B2W 5X4
Alternatively we can meet some place if that is the preference.
