The local league season ends at March Break with only the top two teams from each grouping moving forward for the championship round. 

PCMHA provides each team not qualifying for the championship, one additional ice time for their use at the end of the season.  
 
This program is designed to further the development each player's individual skating skills and teach basic game strategies. Participation in the local league program provides our players with the opportunity to play opposing teams of various ability levels, increasing the level of competition.
