What is Wimps?

Wimps is Yellowknife's adult recreational hockey league, open to men and women aged 19 and over. We welcome all skill levels. Goalies every game. No periods, no refs, no contact, no slap-shots!

Drop-ins welcome if we're not full. Show up early to sign in, and the governors will let you know if you get on at 15 minutes before ice time. $20 if you do.

WIMPS hockey game Tuesday Feb 18 has been cancelled by the City

2020 - SPRING SEASON - >>see below<<

Our winter season is a little shorter this year due to schedule interruptions beginning at March Break. See below for the new Spring schedule!

2019-2020 - WINTER SEASON 

Winter WIMPS sign up has begun. We have three different times to choose from: Saturdays @ 6:30, Mondays @ 9:15, or Tuesdays @ 9:00. Cutoff times are 15 minutes prior to ice times.

Sign in cut off for regular skaters is 15 minutes prior to ice time, after which drop in skaters will be given spots on a first come, first served basis. If you are a regular skater and are running late, contact your governor prior to the cutoff in order to ensure you don't give up your spot. If you arrive after the cutoff, and there are already 20 skaters selected for the night, you will not be allowed to skate even if you're a regular.

Spring Schedule (March 16 - Apr 23)     (Download as PDF here)

Feb 08, 2020

Registration is open to all Wimps, frequent casual Wimps, and anyone who will play in the Wimps spirit (see our Rules if you're not sure, but the short version is: be nice to other players because we're doing this for fun; if you tend to play at high amps, turn it down a notch or two).

Cost for either package is $120 plus $26 insurance (unless you are already insured through Hockey Canada). Send an email with your name and the package you want to Beth at uriel.the.gecko @ gmail.com. Please do not pay before you have been confirmed.
 
We will accept casuals at these games following the usual policy (if we're not full at 15 minutes before ice time, casuals who have signed up will be invited to play for a fee on a first-come, first-served basis). We will cancel if we don't get enough registrations, so please don't count on being able to drop in if you want to play.
