THE puck is set to drop this fall on a new season of Powerplay Hockey—the only city-run recreational hockey league for children in the Lower Mainland—following a two-year hiatus.
The Powerplay Hockey League (PHL) offers an affordable league experience for boys and girls aged 6-9 and 10-13, while providing them with an opportunity to build foundational life skills playing the game they love.
The equipment rental program is also returning, further reducing barriers to participation. For a flat fee of $51.50 per season, families can rent the equipment they need. All equipment is stored at the arena, making it easy and convenient for families.
“Our Powerplay Hockey League aims to provide a fun and inclusive environment that reduces the significant financial barrier typically associated with hockey. It gives children the opportunity to try the sport, be part of a team and learn new skills”, said Layna Neilson, Recreation Operations Manager.
“For parents, the convenience of regular play at one location, reduced financial barriers and the ease of the rental program is a huge bonus.”
The City of Surrey offers the Powerplay Hockey League to ensure all children are given an affordable opportunity to learn the rules of the game while developing important life skills like teamwork, accountability and respect, amidst a fun and inclusive environment.
The league emphasizes fair play and participation to give each child a well-rounded social experience.
