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.


Our winter season is a little shorter this year due to schedule interruptions beginning at March Break. We intend to run a separate spring season starting in mid March, likely with an irregular schedule - details will be provided as plans become firm. This is the perfect time to get some extra ice time in preparation for the many year end tournaments!

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.
