Kingston Minor Ball Hockey
The organization of the 2021 minor ball hockey season is underway.
Expectations are high as the kids are eager to play! We will be running a modified league this year due to some of the Covid19 restrictions. It will be similar to the format ice hockey is using with some adjustments.
We will be limited to the number of players on each team this year, so that will result in less floor time available therefore the league will only be able to run at about 60% or less of our normal capacity. As a result, we will have to put limits on the number of players in each age group.
We also have a large group of players who decided to take the option of rolling over their registration from the cancelled 2020 season to this year. So, they "are already signed up" and have a spot in our league for 2021.
2021 registration will be open for new players starting the beginning of February. Registration will be on a first come basis until divisions are full, which won't take long. Expectations are that most divisions will fill up quickly due to limited capacity and the enthusiasm of playing some ball hockey.
We look forward to seeing your child play ball hockey in the 2021 season.
Number of spots available in each division as of February 20th
|I.P. 2017-2016 (some 2015)||15|
|Tyke 2013||FULL and CLOSED|
|Peewee 2008-2007||FULL AND CLOSED|
Priority for 2021 Registration will go to those players who submit their registration forms with a parent who has decided to help out behind the bench.
The K.M.B.H.L. provides a fun, safe indoor environment where boys and girls (we are co-ed) from ages 3 to 19 years can play ball hockey with other children of similar age. We arrange the teams as fairly as possible, we provide the venue (a hockey arena) we provide our own O.B.H.A. Certified Officials and Timekeepers. All of our teams are chosen not by the coaches, but by the Executive in an effort to keep all the teams balanced as fairly as possible.
Our games are played once per week, on weekday nights (no Fridays or weekends!) The K.M.B.H.L. is the area's largest and most popular ball hockey League, averaging 1000 players the last few years. We are the only Ball Hockey League in Kingston that plays inside safe city facilities...our games are never affected by the weather so we never have to re-schedule any of our games!
We are going to be starting our 2021 Season the later part of May or the beginning of June. You will receive a phone call from your coach the weekend before we begin and they will let you know where and when your first game is. When you show up to your first game, you'll receive your team shirt, and the schedule for the rest of the year. Our Registration Form is on the bottom of every one of our pages, and Registration Information is located here.
The Kingston Minor Ball Hockey League is looking forward to our upcoming Season. Please take time to review our website to hopefully answer any questions you may have for us. If you can't find the information you are looking for, please send us an email and we'll respond to you as quickly as we can.
