OPENING DAY 2017
The 2017 Hamilton Minor Ball Hockey League season will begin on Sunday, April 23rd. Below are the tentative times allocated for games played in each division when the games are played on Sundays based on current registration numbers:
Learn to Play/Squirt Division – Sundays: 9:00am or 10:00am.
Tyke Division – Sundays: 10:00am, 11:00am or 12:00pm.
Novice Division – Sundays: 11:00am, 12:00pm or 1:00pm.
Atom Division – Sundays: 12:00pm, 1:00pm, 2:00pm or 3:00pm.
Peewee Division and above - Sundays: 1:00pm, 2:00pm, 3:00pm or 4:00pm.

In addition to the Sunday games, there will be Friday night games scheduled late May and June similar to last year to make up for the games that are not played on long weekends. The City of Hamilton has allocated the league Morgan Firestone Arena, Mountain Arena, Rosedale Arena and Inch Park Arena for games in 2017. Morgan Firestone Arena and Mountain Arena do not remove the ice until mid to late May so we will use Rosedale Arena and Inch Park to begin the first few weeks of the season.

The official team rosters and team schedules will be released in April and will be available on our website at www.hamiltonballhockey.com.
