Westfort Minor Hockey is excited to have our U9 players back on the ice. Young Caleb (pictured here) has been dreaming of getting back onto the ice and into the net since hockey abruptly ended last March. With the help of donations from Superior Shores Gaming, Westfort Minor Hockey has been able to help young Caleb as he works on becoming the best goalie he can be. Superior Shores Gaming Centre is open daily from for Cabinet and POD game play.

Hello Westfort hockey families and thank you for your patience.
We are happy to announce the six associations within Lakehead Minor Hockey League have been working together to open registration.
Registration will open next week for Phase One (Development Phase) with a price of this phase at $100.00.
We anticipate phase One beginning shortly after Thanksgiving.

As of August 31, 2020 we have HNO's return to play guidelines. Things look positive but now Westfort needs LMHA procedures for moving forward.

The Respect in Sport Program for Parents is a unique, in-depth 1 hour online program geared to providing the parent with information on how to evaluate and understand:
The program is a proactive, educational program that empowers parents with the tools to ensure the game is enjoyable and respectful for themselves, their children and all other stakeholders in the game.
Beginning with the 2016-17 minor hockey season a minimum of 1 parent/guardian from each family with players at the Novice or Atom level will need to take the program along with 1 parent/ guardian from any players entering Hockey Canada programming for the first time in the peewee to midget age groups.
The cost of the one hour online program is $12.00+HST and you can complete the course at the link below:

NOTE - The Respect in Sport Parent Program differs from the Respect in Sport Leader/Coach Program. Therefore parents that have taken the Leader/Coach Program must still take the Parent Program.
