Have a great off-season!

With the TBirds schedule officially completed for the 2021-22 season, we hope everyone finds time to pursue other sports and activities over the coming months. Enjoy some time with family and friends, and we look forward to seeing you back on the ice during the August Thunderbird Summer Camps.

For anyone looking to join TBirds next season who are not currently with us on the ice this season, please be sure to sign up for our 2022-23 waitlist. Information can be found on our registration page. Note that returning players do not need to do anything and will receive further instructions later this spring as we near the start of May registration.
