Our Principles

Entering our 12th 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
    • 10 Games is the length of the season
    • Start date is obviously determined by facility availability

Other League Details

  • Each player will receive a jersey and a pair of socks
  • Maximum of 11 skaters per Traditional team, Open teams numbers are at the discretion of the team manager.
  • Number of teams and divisions created will (as always) be determined by enrollment numbers
  • As per Hockey Canada, WHIP Hockey will be adopting the new age group nomenclature.
