The ECI Little Snipers 2Line Program was designed to give the players that were not selected for our Little Pros AAA teams maximum development in a fun environment in the short 4-5 week spring program. The ice sessions are structured to give these Little Snipers a great balance of skill development and fun to ensure they develop their skills properly and also develop a passion for the game of hockey!
Each team will have 10 players and 1 goaltender per team (along with 1-2 Sub Players and 1 goalie who practice (depending on division) and can fill in games if someone is missing), which gives the players a significant amount of exposure to coaches’ feedback and will get them on the ice every second shift to work on the skills they have practiced.
Playing our signature 2Line ice hockey league is a positive environment to have fun, build chemistry with your linemates and build new friendships.
The 10 hours of development sessions (split up into 2 sessions per week) will be on half ice surfaces to ensure the kids get maximum skill development and feedback. Each session, they will have 30-40 minutes of skill development, working on skating, puck control, passing, shooting and decision making skills, then they will play a 2line hockey game (Cross Ice or Full Ice) for the remainder of the session!

Covid-19 Refund Policy
As injuries often occur, ECI provides our players with the opportunity to purchase insurance, which will refund a player’s registration fee on a pro-rated basis.
Note: This is not player insurance as all registered players are automatically covered, it is simply insurance on the registration fee.
Cancellations and Refunds
We do not offer an open refund policy.
Players have the opportunity to fund-raise and get sponsors to help cover the cost of their spring hockey expenses. Funds collected through the Sponsorship Program go directly to the player.
As we want to ensure the safety of all families involved, ECI will be following all recommendations, guidelines and protocols laid out by our Provincial Health authorities and facilities. If ECI is forced to cancel any programs Due to Covid-19 and cannot reschedule them, families will have options for credit or refunds on a prorated basis. Refunds will not be given to families who withdraw on a voluntary basis.
