The Church Athletic League is pleased to announce that this season(2018/19) we will be offering free clinics registered CAL goalies of all ages. The clinics will be led by dedicated CAL volunteers Andre Bouchard and Geoff MacDonald.
These clinics are designed to help the league’s new and current goaltenders learn and develop goaltending skills to improve their abilities and overall enjoyment of the game. It is also open to all CAL coaches to help them learn more goalie specific drills and how to better incorporate them in their team practice.
This 9-week program will take place on Sunday afternoons from 2:00-2:50 pm at the Memorial Centre from October 14 through December 9.

*In addition to the free goalie clinics, the league is offering a $75.00 rebate on goalie registration fees for the coming season. Rebate cheques will be processed once the season is underway.
Novice & Tyke Programming News
The CAL Board of Directors, in consultation with our Hockey Committee, are working diligently exploring programming for our Tyke & Novice Divisions for the 2018-19 season, following the guidelines set out by the OMHA & Hockey Canada. Our Novice Teams will be playing regularly scheduled full ice games which may include games with KAMHA's Novice Teams. Tyke Teams will be playing in a "half ice format" (as mandated by the OMHA & Hockey Canada), and may include games with KAMHA's Tyke Teams. It is our belief that we must continue to 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. All too often, our kids leave hockey entirely after their first or second season in this sport because of an unsatisfactory experience. Teams will continue to have their weekly practice, and their games will, for the most part, continue to be on Saturday mornings.
We welcome any and all feedback from your experience over the course of this past season, and enhancements for our upcoming season.
