Toronto Maple Leafs First Shift Returns for a Sixth Season at Brantford Minor Hockey - Registration Opens June 1st at Noon
Submitted By Rob Symons on Tue 05 23, 23
Brantford Minor Hockey is very pleased to offer the Toronto Maple Leafs First Shift program for a sixth consecutive season. Registration opens on Thursday, June 1 at Noon at  

First Shift is open to boys and girls ages 6-10*, who have not previously registered for hockey. (*To be eligible to participate, children must be born between January 1, 2013 and May 1st, 2018.)

First Shift is designed to ensure a positive experience for new-to-hockey families. We want to take away any intimidation as it relates to equipment requirements, and/or rules of the game, remove potential safety concerns, and most importantly, provide an experience that is memorable and fun. Players are divided into small groups and rotate to various skills stations, ensuring varying skill development with a positive ratio of instructors to skaters.

Participant registration fee is $299 and includes:
Bauer equipment (head-to-toe) that is yours to keep
Welcome event with expert fit session and equipment distribution
6 on-ice sessions (1 hour on a consistent day and time)
Focus on fun and learn to play

BMHA has been awarded one group of 45 skaters for the Fall program. This has been a very popular initiative and spots will go quickly. Register early to avoid disappointment.

The Welcome Event / Equipment Fitting is scheduled to take place on Wednesday, November 8, 2023. On-ice sessions could begin as early as Saturday, November 18, 2023, but this is not yet confirmed. On-ice sessions are typically held on Saturday’s, early to late-afternoon at Wayne Gretzky Sports Centre.

Full program details and FAQs are available at
