PrintGeneral Information

General Information 2019/2020 Season:

  • All registrations for ENS will be conducted online. (Links at bottom of page).
  • ENS accepts players on a first come first served basis. Any registrations received after July 31, will automatically be put on a waiting list. 
  • The early bird discount of $100.00 will apply to all registrations with full payment received before June 30. After June 30, all registrations will be subject to the full registration fee. 
  • All registration fees include a $50.00 non-refundable amount.
Preferred Centre
  • Each player will be asked to pick “Preferred Centre“ during registration process. Every effort will be made to accommodate players in their preferred centre, however there are no guarantees and board reserves the right to:
  1. Assign players to either Harrow or Kingsville as registration numbers require. (Date of registration will be the main factor for changes to your preferred centre selection, so the early you register the better).   
  2. Assign teams that play equally out of both centres (50% Harrow, 50% Kingsville).
  • NEW – For the upcoming 2019/2020 season: Initiation Program (4-6 year old) - ENS will be consolidating the Initiation programs from Harrow and Kingsville centers together for all kids 4 to 6 years of age. This means thatplayers from both centres will be joined together by age group and skill to form equally mixed and balanced teams. Ice will be utilized once in Kingsville and once in Harrow per week to accommodate practices. This will allow players to play in their home centre once per week and travel to the neighboring centre once per week. There will be 2 skill evaluation skates at the beginning of the year to facilitate the proper placement of all players in the IP programs. Our intent is to give each age group their own separate ice to allow better focused skill development with similar skilled players grouped together, however registration numbers will ultimately dictate the overall outline for ice times allotted to the IP program.
  • Any player requesting a AAA Permission to Skate (PTS), must be registered with ENSMHA first.
  • The tryout fee of $50 will be paid online only, prior to taking the ice for the first tryout.
