Question #4

I have already registered my child and have recently received the conditioning camp schedule by email. At registration time, I did not sign my child up for camp, however, I am wondering if it is too late to do so?


In advance of the conditioning camp beginning up to September 5th, you are able to still sign up your child even if you did not do so during the registration process. You will need to go back to the main registration page and click on the online store for registration and Tryouts and add Conditioning only to your player and proceed to the checkout. 

Payment would need to be received by the controller (via mail, e-transfer or by credit card payment) before your child would be able to step onto the ice for any conditioning session. Payment cannot be made at the rink at the time of the first ice session in any circumstance.
