The Burlington Eagles are excited to announce that our Junior Eagles program will be expanding, and we will be fielding an Under 7 MD team for 2024/25! They will participate in the Tri-County Minor Hockey League MD pod amongst other local centers and will play in three jamborees over the season.

This upcoming season the Tri-County Minor Hockey League is adding an Under 7 MD pod for teams to play in, and the Eagles will enter one team to play against other like-skilled teams. The TCMHL will split the league based on expected skill, and will monitor the pods throughout the season to ensure the competition is as fair and balanced as possible.

The league will be similar to the U8 breakdown: they will play 4v4 half-ice all season. There will be a break during the holiday season (Dec. 23rd to Jan. 3rd ), and each team will be allowed to enter three jamborees across the season. There will be 18 games in the Tri-County league, and then the team will be allowed to play eight exhibition games against opponents of their choosing throughout the year.

Evaluations for the U7 MD team will occur after Labour Day, and will include prep skates before the evaluations start. There will be an extra fee to attend evaluations for the MD team, so if your player does not want to participate, it is not mandatory. The Eagles will reach out to all players that have paid their Junior Eagles deposit for the option to register for the MD team evaluations near the end of the summer. If you have not paid the deposit for the Junior Eagles program you will not be contacted by the Eagles for MD evaluations.

Once the MD team is chosen, remaining players will be re-assigned to the Junior Eagles program that will have the same structure as the 2023/24 season. There will be 6-8 teams that skate on Tuesday/Thursday, Saturday, and Sunday and will receive the same instruction and skill development the Junior Eagles saw this season.

Your deposit will go towards your total registration for the 2024-25 season, regardless of if your player is on the MD team or with the Junior Eagles program. TO PAY YOUR JUNIOR EAGLES DEPOSIT, CLICK HERE.
