BALL HOCKEY MANIACS, LEND ME YOUR EARS...
Canada Ball Hockey Korea (CBHK) is once again recruiting a few good men and women for our 23rd season of play, which will begin this September. Old and new players alike are welcome to start registering at www.cbhk.co now.
Every season we hope to have 10 teams and 120 players registered. However, this doesn’t always happen, so in order to make it fair for everyone we will be using the following cut off numbers (72, 77, 84, 88, 96, 99 and 108) from the start of registration.
If, after you register and make your payment, you fall between these numbers you will be placed on to the waiting list until the next cut off number is reached. If you really want to play this season please register immediately to guarantee your spot so this doesn’t happen to you!!
All games are to be played on Sundays from 10:00AM to 8:00PM (10 teams), 11:00AM to 7:00PM (8 teams), 11:00AM to 5:00PM (6 teams) with two teams scheduled into one of the two hour blocks except for those with an * next to the date.
