2019-2020 Pre Season Information

Welcome Cochrane Cougars!

We are back from our Summer break and working hard to prepare for the 2019-20 Season.

So far we have just under 50 new players this season. We warmly welcome you and look forward to having you join our Cougar family.

Please check out our website Cochranerechockey.ca – info regarding required equipment can be found there. You can also join our Closed Facebook group for season updates and notifications.

We are working at securing additional ice times so we can confirm practice schedules ASAP. However we have a few important dates to share with you.


Important Upcoming Dates

New player/ Invite Only Skate for Novice/Atom Divisions

Saturday, September 7 at 10:15 am – 11:15 am Cochrane Arena

All Novice & Atom players new to us are required to attend this ice time.

New player / invite only skate for Peewee/Bantam Divisions

Saturday, September 7 at 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm Cochrane Arena.

All Peewee & Bantam players new to us are required to attend this ice time.

We will send specific details to all the players who are required to attend these ice times. If you do not receive an email,  please do not attend this event.
Please Note: Teams will not be confirmed prior to this event.

Practice Info

Our first practices will start the last weekend of September!

Specific divisional info including practice times for the first few weeks of the season will be sent out later this week.

Regular practice schedules will be released asap. However, we will follow a very similar format as last season with teams rotating through regular Friday practice times with the occasional Sunday practice in lieu of the Friday time.


Game Schedule Info

Games for some divisions may start as early as mid October. However, our regular game schedule will not be released until Nov. The other communities we play with continue to do a later registration process which makes earlier schedule release difficult.


New this Season!

A parent meeting will take place during the first team practice. At least 1 parent will be required to be in attendance.

Outstanding Player deposit Cheques and paperwork will be collected by team managers this season.

Jerseys will only be released by team managers if all deposits and paperwork have been collected.

There will be NO Exceptions this season.


Coaches & Team Managers

I will be contacting coaches and team managers throughout this week. I have had interest from several new player parents regarding these roles.

Would those parents please send me a quick text with their contact info and specific area of interest so I can ensure I have everyone on the list 403-973-6909

Over the coming weeks we will be sending many more details about the upcoming season.

This is an extremely busy time and there is an overwhelming amount of communication happening. For this reason I ask that you remain patient as I try to return emails in a timely manner. However, if you have not received a response within a few days please resend.

Urgent questions should be sent by text message 403-973-6909

Thank you,
