As such, there will be no games scheduled on Saturday February 3rd, or on Sunday February 4th.

Each year, the Church Athletic League supports CAL hockey players in their pursuit of post-secondary education by granting bursaries to eligible CAL participants. Up to two (2) bursaries are awarded in recognition of outstanding commitment to community service, athletics and academic excellence.
These bursaries reflect the achievements of young hockey players who are committed to their community, athletics and academic achievement. The purpose of the bursaries is to help the students to offset the high costs associated with continuing their post-secondary education.
Novice & Tyke Programming News
18 Sept. 2017
The CAL Board of Directors, in consultation with our Hockey Committee, are expanding our Tyke & Novice Divisions this season, with the co-operation of Kingston Area Minor Hockey. New this year, our Novice Teams will be playing regularly scheduled games not only amongst our own CAL Teams, but also games with KAMHA's Novice Teams. Tyke Teams will be playing in the new "half ice format", with both CAL & KAMHA Tyke Teams. It is our belief that we must focus on optimizing the hockey experience for our youngest players in order to keep them interested in playing hockey next year and into the future; too often, our kids leave hockey entirely after their first or second season in the sport because of an unsatisfactory experience. This is a "Pilot Project" for this season only, and will be reviewed at the end of the 2017-18 season. Teams will continue to have their weekly practice, and their games will, for the most part, continue to be on Saturday mornings. Schedules for Novice & Tyke are available onlne. With additional teams to play games against, we believe this will improve the experience at these two (2) age levels for all of our participants.
We welcome any and all feedback from your experience over the course of this hockey season.
