Our Principles

Entering our 8th season, WHIP 4 on 4 Hockey is a fun and friendly extension of your child's hockey season, regardless of whether you decide to organize your own squad for our OPEN ("Bring your best") division or just want to individually register your child for our TRADITIONAL ("Have Fun") division. 

  • Regarding '4 on 4' vs. '3 on 3' or standard '5 on 5'
    • '4 on 4' seems to be the perfect balance of team structure versus individual skill development (stick-handling/skating/passing/shooting)
    • '4 on 4' allows for larger teams than '3 on 3' which helps defer costs
  • Fun Quotient
    • Our mandate at all levels and age-groups is that 'Fun' is the most important ingredient of any league and any of our league decisions regarding operations, team balancing, discipline etc. are primarily governed by this principle
  • Length of Season
    • April to Canada Day operation incurs the least impact to summer holidays and cottage season.
