On behalf of the NRMHA and the Board of Directors, welcome back to hockey! And Welcome to all the New Members.

We are just as excited as you are to be lacing up our skates again and dropping the puck on a new season. We are again looking forward to the sounds of the rink, family and friends in the stands cheering, teammates supporting each other, and everyone's favorite- Rink Fries.

We've been asked about registration rates for the upcoming season.

Unfortunately, this year due to rising costs and our hourly rate for ice rental going up, we have no choice but to increase our registration prices by $10.

Members should be aware that your registration rate also covers the cost of officials and timekeepers for each game.

Used "Donated" Gear
North River Minor Hockey Association logo

It's been so great to see everyone take advantage of Gear Exchange program. So many have been able to utilize some used get to get them on the ice for this Season.

For us to keep this gear exchange going, we do need help from our members with some helpful hints to make it even better.

*We do not wish item(s) dropped off that are not in good condition. If there's something broke, ripped, or in not so good condition, please refrain from dropping the item(s) off to the bin. Also, be sure to check the expiry date, as we do need gear to be CSA approved.

*It would be beneficial if gloves or skates be placed together by either tape or tying the skates together. Having unpaired items placed in the bin and not together, is not helpful when the bin starts to overflow.

*All items are to be placed in the bin, and nothing should be left around the bin or on the floor. This can be a safety concern with young siblings and spectators in that area.

Did you know we have more gear available for members to check out? The cupboards located down by the Zamboni doors also has all kinds of gear available.

It's certainly a busy season for everyone to advantage of the available gear, we just ask that we have everyone's support in helping us keep the area tidy, sorted, and clean.

*Please note our NR Gear exchange is open to all Associations, not just NRMHA.

North River Minor Hockey Association logo

As the hockey season is quickly approaching, many of our volunteers have been busy in organizing another great start to the season. Please note that our NRMHA 2023/2024 registration details and online registration will be released later this month.

For those needing hockey equipment, our donation bin and back cupboards at the APM are overflowing. There are plenty of items in good condition that we know players could use. (Skates, helmets, hockey bags, protective gear, etc.) When going through the equipment, we ask that you kindly place any unwanted items back in the cupboards and keep the space organized.

Any equipment being dropped off should be in good condition that you would in turn still use if needed. Expired or items in less than good condition, should not be dropped off in donations for us to throw out.

We appreciate your cooperation with this and we welcome all families to stop in and help themselves to the gear.

Thank you to all those that have dropped off gear.

APM Centre - 2nd Ice Surface And Expansion To Recreation Space
APM Centre logo

Hello - NRMHA parents and community members,

For the past 2 years our APM expansion committee has been working as a sub committee of the Communities 13 inc board. Our goal is to explore the feasibility of adding an additional ice surface and expanding the general recreation space at the current APM Centre. The APM Expansion committee had a Feasibility Study completed by Jim Cain of Firland Management. The link to this Feasibility study is below. This study shows that NRMHA has the regional population growth to justify adding a 2nd ice surface and expanding the recreation space at the APM Centre.

Feasibility Study, Business & Concept Plan

Jim Cain is the President and Owner of Firland Management. Jim's management team is a hands-on team of consultants who have extensive industry experience in the recreation, and specifically, ice rink industry. More information about Firland Management can be found here.

As hockey parents we feel that we are spending most of our time in rinks other than our home rink - the APM centre, so we decided to see if it would be feasible to have a 2nd ice surface added.

The APM centre was built in 2001 with the goal of one day having a 2nd ice surface added. Consider the following reasons to support this project.

  1. North River Minor Hockey, Matrix and Wildcat users are looking for additional ice to rent on a regular basis that is not available.
  2. Many home games or practices take place outside of Cornwall for NRMHA players.
  3. NRMHA is the 2nd largest minor hockey association on PEI and growing.
  4. Cornwall has grown in population by 49% since 2001 and Cornwall ranks 14th in the country and 1st in the Atlantic region among municipalities with 5000 plus residents. Roughly 300 lots were recently approved for construction in Cornwall.
  5. Charlottetown Ringette is looking to rent ice from the APM that is not available as it is full.

We are looking for your support. If you agree with our goal, we would ask that you consider doing some or all of the following...

  1. Help promote, like and share our facebook page (2nd Ice Surface & Recreational Facility - APM Centre - Cornwall PEI).
  2. Speak to your MLA and town council members about this project.
  3. Share suggestions or support by emailing us at:

Thank you,

Rob MacAdam, Scott Cameron, Mark White, Tim Hamel, Sid Annema, Christopher Drummond and Trevor MacNeill
