Annual Hockey Fundraiser
The 7th annual Martha Svirchev Gathering is February 2, 2019 at Kings Catering at 6:30pm. 
Last year was our biggest turn out to date with almost 300 people. This annual fundraiser was formed several years ago as a result of possible school budget cuts and the elimination of our hockey program. The fundraiser provides financial support for ice time, locker room maintenance, senior scholarship and other expenses deemed appropriate. Martha was CA Hockey’s biggest fan until she passed in 2006. Tickets are $40 a person. Food, Wine & Brew. All tasting are included with your ticket. Mega raffles for $100. LIVE MUSIC! A winner drawn for every 40 raffles sold. $2000 winner. Amazing gift basket raffles donated by our CA Hockey families. PLEASE COME OUT TO SUPPORT OUR PROGRAM. Come hungry & thirsty! Tickets sold by families, email   or message us on our Facebook page.

Beginner Hockey FAQs

Our winter session of Beginner Hockey is currently underway.  This 8-week family-friendly program began January 5 and concludes February 23, 2019. See the Beginners tab above for details on our beginner program. If you have questions, please send an e-mail to: ckhbeginners@gmail.com.

 

Frequently Asked Questions:

Can my child participate with no/little skating experience?  Absolutely.  Children who participate in beginner hockey have varying levels of skating experience. 

 

What equipment is required?   You must provide: skates and mouth guard. Other hockey equipment needed: helmet, gloves, shin guards and elbow pads.  These items are available for loan on a first come, first served basis (while supplies last) and can be borrowed for a $80 refundable deposit due at time of pick-up. A jersey and hockey stick will be provided to all beginner skaters.

 

Note: Skates rented at the rink need to be returned after each session, so the skates are available for other young skaters during the week.

 

Can my child use figure skates?  No, coaches ask that all beginners have hockey skates.  Bring your own or rent from the Greater Canandaigua Civic Center, while supplies last. For those planning to bring their own, new/used skates can be purchased for a nominal fee at various stores. 

 

What skate size should my child get?  This depends on the brand.  Typically it is 1-2 sizes smaller than shoe size. Greater Canandaigua Civic Center staff can help with fitting on rentals and most retailers can offer fitting assistance. We recommend this before purchase.

 

Do skates need to be sharpened?  If you have purchased new/used skates for your child, they will need to be sharpened. This can be done at the rink for a nominal fee.

 

Can parents/guardians go on ice with skaters

We welcome volunteers who have played hockey or can skate. Requirements to do so include: helmet, skates, stick and completing the Meghan’s Law screening on-line (see link below).  There is a $25 fee for this screening. The certificate of completion must be handed to a Canandaigua Knights Board representative before you can get on ice.  NYSAHA/USA Hockey Background Screening (On-line) - Also known as Meghan's Law: www.commercialinvestigationsllc.com/vssnysaha

 

What is the $80 registration fee used for?  Canandaigua Knights Hockey is run by many volunteers.  The money collected is primarily used for the cost of the ice and equipment.

 

Other helpful tips:

-        Plan to arrive at least 25 minutes early to dress your child in the hockey equipment, unless they come to rink dressed, to ensure they get on the ice on time.

-        Loose fitting pants are recommended (sweats/PJ bottoms ).  You want pants to fit over shin guards. This makes it easier for skater to stand…plastic shin guards are very slippery on ice. 

-        We recommend you take the equipment out of the bag to dry when you get home each week.

-        We’ve been asked where children can get additional ice time to improve their skating.  The Greater Canandaigua Civic Center (gccc.org) offers open skate times to the public.  See their website for details.
