The FIRST SHIFT program is designed to ensure a positive experience for new-to-hockey families. We want families to experience the game at its best — to understand why so many Canadians feel an inherent love for the sport, and to stimulate a desire for continued participation.

Congratulations to all the kids who participated in the 2022 FIRST SHIFT PROGRAM with Parkwoods. We hope you enjoyed the experience and had fun along the way.!

Parkwoods would like to thank the NHL/NHLPA FIRST SHIFT and BAUER by offering an unforgettable hockey program that is ACCESSIBLE, AFFORDABLE, SAFE, and most importantly, FUN! We believe in all hockey has to offer kids, their families and communities.

Parkwoods is looking forward to hosting the FIRST SHIFT PROGRAM in the 2022-2023 hockey season.

Alistair Hoy (1996-2011) played house league and Select hockey at Parkwoods. Alistair played with tenacity, hard work and perseverance and he battled illness the same way. In 2011 the League created a Memorial Award to honour Alistair. The Alistair Hoy award is given annually in his memory to the most all-around player in the U15 Division (formerly Bantam Division).

The recipient of the Alistair Hoy Award for the 2021-2022 Parkwoods Season is Ryan Lawrence.

Ryan’s character and demeanor both on and off the ice and his dedication to the game of hockey makes him a well-deserved recipient for this award.

Parkwoods President Francis Cooke presented Ryan with the award on April2, 2002 during the Parkwoods Championship Cup day. Congratulations Ryan on winning the award.
