Due to the popularity of the program, we have reached the maximum number of registrations for skaters. Going forward, any skater registrations received shall be placed on a waitlist in the order they came in. Should a skater slot become available, we will contact the player at the top of the waitlist.
There are still a few goaltender spots available.
