Welcome to the 2023-24 Recreational Balancing phase!

All information regarding schedule, group assignments and any other key information pertaining to the Balancing Process will be found on this page in the division specific tabs.

Attendance at Balancing Scrimmages

It is really important to have as many players as possible attend each of the balancing scrimmages. If players don't show, we have no ability to assess the strength of the team. Once teams are formed we do not want to have PCAHA tell us we need to move players, which they can until the end of November, which is not the experience we want for any of our players. Please do everything you can to attend ALL session you are assigned to.

Don't Forget...

  • To update your ePact account when you receive the notification in your email. This is important for the onsite HCSPs to be able to best assist in the event of an injury.
U11 Division

We have now broken U11 into groups (NOT TEAMS).  As we begin the Balancing process, there will be movement from group to group and if you moved from one group to another, you will be notified by your Division Ambassadors.  These groups are not TEAMS and in no way reflect the final assignment on a team.  At this time, we are working on the balancing schedule but ice time should start on Tuesday, September 5.  The plan is to have one practice and one to two games per week, similar to season play.  I am hoping to have a tentative schedule published by September 1.  There will be NO schedules posted in TeamSnap, all information will be posted here.  Please bookmark this page and refer back to it regularly.

Note:  Goalies will play on a rotational basis unless already assigned to a group.  We will try to limit the number of games per week but there are a few divisions where most of the goalies are trying out, leaving us with a shortage of goalies for now.

For Groupings, please refer to this LINK.

For arena/rink addresses, please refer to this LINK.

If you do not see your name in any group, please contact us at register@vancouvertbirds.ca.  AT THIS TIME, THERE IS NO SCHEDULE, thank you for your patience as we work on them.
