Inline hockey in Port Coquitlam
You can sign up for a fun, no-hit inline hockey program this spring in Port Coquitlam.
Open to male and female participants, the city’s inline hockey program is a non-contact sport that focuses on fun, safety and skill development for younger players. PoCo’s program offers four age divisions, with teams in each playing a one-hour game once a week at rec complex. Players of all abilities come together once a week to play in a non-competitive environment.
The four divisions are:
• Six to eight years of age — players develop inline skating and hockey skills, learn about positions and play non-competitive games; includes eight one-hour games on Sunday mornings from April 14 to June 23.
• Nine to 12 years — players continue to build skills while playing eight non-competitive games on Sunday mornings from April 14 to June 23.
• 13 to 16 years old — players increase game and skill level while maintaining a recreational level of competitiveness; includes eight one-hour games on Friday evenings from April 12 to June 21.
• 17 to 20 years old — offers a continuum for older participants to increase level of competitiveness while still ensuring safety and the non-contact aspects of the game. Includes 10 one-hour games on Monday evenings from April 15 to June 24.
Participants receive a team t-shirt but must bring their own equipment. One goaltender per team can register for free on a first-come, first-served basis by calling 604-927-7929 (goalie equipment is provided).
