History

CC89 3on3 Hockey formed in 2013 and partnered with 3on3 by Adam Bennett league for the 2014 season and beyond. Under new management the CC89 3on3 league expanded and developed a new vision that lead to more fun and development. Cory Conacher spent 3 years in the NHL playing for Tampa Bay, Ottawa and Buffalo and this season in Switzerland as Pro Player.  Cory says that 3on3 Hockey gives players from Houseleague and Rep players the chance to develop their skating using wide open ice, practice their one on one stick handling and long distance passing skills.

3on3 Hockey

CC89 3on3 hockey is best described as "organized pond hockey", where kids can develop their skills in a spring/summer league that emphasizes fun and competitiveness to a certain level. Many NHL players developed their skills playing pond hockey on frozen lakes and ice rinks of other kinds. Everybody makes the playoffs, unique rules, including no icings, contribute to a fast, exciting pace and this wide-open format promotes creativity amongst players of all skill levels.

In 3on3 hockey, each team has three skaters and a goalie on the ice at a time, giving players considerably more time to skate and handle the puck. To keep the emphasis on fair play and fun, there are balancing rules for equal competition (see balancing section) and post-season round robin playoffs allow everyone the chance to play in the Championship Game.

CC89 3on3 Hockey leagues run from May to August depending on location and games are typically played on weekends (except holiday weekends; where possible this cannot be guaranteed).

Our leagues are currently available from novice to midget ages. Players register as individuals but we do accept 'play with' requests and team requests.  Every effort is made to accommodate the players.
