We’ll recognize Bill at our upcoming AGM – he had a big heart and was a great character – we’ll miss him.
In an on going effort to maintain the health and safety of all the members of the KWOHC we are sending out this message to remind the membership that COVID-19 is very prevalent in the general population. We, as participants in a close contact sport, must be vigilant of our own personal health. At any sign of not feeling well, avoid contact and specifically refrain from playing in our league games. Recent cases amongst our players have been handled with close contact teams and officials being informed of a positive test and players affected isolating themselves. Please follow the guideline of removing yourself from league play, contact your captain with any necessary timeline information, and follow all provincial guidelines for your health and the safety of your teammates. Please remember to have your
own water bottles & towels on the bench, no sharing.
The Executive of KWOH Club
The KWOH Board of Directors and its Membership would like to express its condolences to Noreen and the Sudds family on their loss of their husband, father, grandpa, great grandpa, uncle and friend to many people.
KWOH would also like to pay tribute to one of our founders of the League and thank him for the countless volunteer hours (Publicity/Marketing chairman in 1978 and 1st VP in 1980) he put in to make it the great league it is today.
Ken – may you always have your stick on the ice and tip in that next goal to win the game!
41st Annual Tournament Returns. Details on Tournament page.
This league of hockey teams is for men 35 years of age and older, playing up to 2 games per week, approximately 45 games in total, from late September through March each year. There are currently 30 teams in 5 different divisions. Initial placement in a division is based on age, experience and ability and we try to fit each player to a division, and sometimes do so intra-season. An important consideration for prospective new players – we are not set up to be a ‘learn to play’ league. There is a minimum standard for skating ability and knowledge of the game, this being important for many reasons including player safety.
All games are local and are played Monday to Thursday evenings with game start times ranging from 6:30 to 10:30 pm, and Sunday 3:30 to 5:00 pm start times.
There are no slapshots allowed and body checking is prohibited. Each game is overseen by two referees.
