HONEYHARP SPORTS 3 ON 3 SPRING HOCKEY LEAGUE

 

 

Welcome!

This is our sixth year of 3 on 3 in Centre Wellington.  We are proud of our growth over the years and happy to be back once again to provide spring hockey to our local community.  

 

As you can see we have a new site and some changes in store for the 2022 season.  Outlined below is information pertaining to the upcoming season for new and returning players, coaches and parents.  If at any time you require assistance with any information, please contact us at inquiries@honeyharpsports.ca or text/call at 519 993-7007.

3 on 3 League Information

Mandate: This is meant to be a fun league. It is not a tryout for a new team, nor is it an opportunity for coaches to come watch players.  We want players to enjoy their time with us for the love of the game.  

 

Location:  This year, all our games will be played in Centre Wellington at the Fergus Sportsplex.  All games are full ice with referees and full equipment with mouthguard is required.  Jerseys are provided for each player.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

League Size:  We are looking at filling 4 teams per division this year. 

Cost:  The cost is $265.49 + 13% tax per player, a $25 non refundable administrative fee applies in the event of cancellation. 

Teams:  Each team is composed of 10 or 11 players.  We do not make teams - we ask parents to build and manage teams directly.  We try to help match players to teams looking for players but we do not accept individual registrations and we cannot guarantee a spot on any team.  Each division is a mix of minor and major age ranges and the division your child will play in is based on the league they just finished.  Each team may only have 3, AAA or AA registered players.  Likewise, each team may only have 3 AAA/AA playing in a game at any given time -regardless of substitutions.  There must be at least one parent on the bench at all times and each team must have a stocked first aid kit on the bench for every game.

Age Ranges: 

U9:       2013/2014 (Novice)

U11:     2011/2012 (Atom)

U13:     2010/2009 (Peewee)

U15:     2008/2007 (Bantam)

Game Length:  Each league game consists of 2, 22 minute periods.  Tournament games are approximately half as long.  We do have specific rules which can be found here.  Penalties and game play rules are much the same as in the OMHA.  A two-strike rule is being implemented this year.  Anyone removed for fighting will get one more chance to redeem their actions on the ice but if they are removed a second time, they forfeit participation in our league. Tournament hosts reserve the right to interpret the severity of player's actions.

Game Schedule:  All of our games will begin in the last weekend of Marchl '22 and finish on the weekend of April 28th-29th.  The season will consist of 8 regular season games, 3 or 4 tournament games (depending on which teams make the finals) and a semi finals and final (teams that win semi's will play in final). Games will be scheduled based on available ice. We make every effort to accommodate teams schedules during league playoffs.

 

Coaches and managers will be sent schedules. Please check in with them for digital copies.

We are implementing a cut-off date this year for schedule changes.  Once local hockey tryout schedules are posted, teams will have 48 hours to make appropriate changes.  Please refrain from making changes to the schedule when at all possible.  It is much easier to find replacements than it is to find new ice time.

Registration:  Again we are only looking for 16 teams this year.  Please do not start building your team until you've contacted us to see if there is still space in a division.  As a reminder, we require a minimum of 4 teams to run a division and we must have an even number of teams.

3 Step Process for registration:

1.  Print off the registration form located here.  Coaches and managers can print off a team summary page here.

 

2.  Fill out the registration form and waiver and give to a manager or parent who is helping put the team together.  As a reminder, each team can only have 3 AA or AAA players on each team (refer to rules for more information)

3.  Contact HoneyHarp (email and phone located at top of page) to arrange for pickup and to confirm your spot.

4.  At this time we cannot take single registrations.  We would ask all parents/coaches to please collect all fees prior to registering.  Please have your whole team registered and paid prior to your first ice time.

Thanks,

We are looking forward to a great season!

** League Update (updated at 5:48pm March 18th, 2022)

Hello 3 on 3 community. Disappointingly, we have not had the response for 3 on 3 that we were hoping for. As a result we could not fill the U9 and U11 divisions with teams this year.  Also, we currently do not have enough teams to fill the U13 and U15 divisions but we are only in need of one team to fill the U15 and two teams to fill the U13.  Spots will be open in these divisions until the weekend. If they are not filled, we will have to fold the league for this year.

If you are at all interested in putting a team in U13 or U15, please contact Heather at inquiries@honeyharpsports.ca

Sincerely,

HoneyHarp
