·         At least two recommendation letters.  These may be from a principal, teacher or counselor from his/her high school or another individual (not a relative) such as coach, employer, etc., who is familiar with the player’s accomplishments and character.

·         Current official transcript

·         Evidence of any other awards, accomplishments, volunteerism, etc.

Application packets must be received by March 21st.  Please deliver to the hockey office at 1176 Blair Road Burlington, in a sealed envelope addressed to Jean Longfield.
