Atom A Evaluations begin Aug 28th, 2015
Please arrive at the rink at least 1 hour prior to your FIRST ice time to check in.
Once you have completed equipment check and residency check you will not be required to check in again.
Check In and Residence Verification – there will be a check in table at the front entrance of the arena. Please proceed there for residency checks and further directions.
TWO PIECES OF PROOF OF RESIDENCY in Coquitlam are required for all player registrations.
- 1 – Property tax notice/ BC Hydro/Terasen Gas/Shaw Cable bill or lease/rental agreement and;
- 2- Car Insurance registration
Please note that all residency documents will be checked prior to your child’s first skate/evaluation and if it is not available, your child will not be allowed on the ice until it is provided. Please discuss any concerns prior to evaluations
Residency is a Pacific Coast Amateur Hockey Association/Hockey Canada requirement.
Equipment Checks will be conducted on all players.
DO come to the Equipment check table in all your gear including your skates and sticks except your jersey.
Equipment Check Tips
Helmets, stickers, sticks and poor fit are the most common causes of equipment check failures. The adhesive used on non-manufacturer stickers applied to helmets may not meet the helmet manufacturer’s standards, rendering the CSA certification and manufacturer warranties void. Remove them but leave the original manufacturer stickers in place. Check carefully for missing or loose screws and ensure the “J” clips ( on the top left and right where the face mask attaches to the helmet) are in place and functional ( clips onto face guard and shock absorbs when guard is pushed upward against helmet ). Don’t forget to check the expiry date.
Don’t bring a disintegrating ball hockey stick to the rink. Put enough wraps of tape on the butt end to ensure it won’t fit through a face guard.
Avoid the temptation to buy equipment that a player will someday “grow into”. This can expose a player to unnecessary risk and significantly diminish his/her enjoyment and on-ice performance. If buying a pre-packaged set of ice-hockey equipment for a younger player, you may find some of the items fit, but others do not. Ask the vendor to let you check the quality and fit of each individual piece before you buy. Road/street hockey gear is not an acceptable substitute for ice hockey gear.
