We are thrilled to be once again be offering this newcomer and low-income - character based Hockey program to students in YRDSB and YCDSB schools in Markham, Richmond Hill and Vaughan and to have introduced it to Newmarket and East Gwillimbury. We are in two schools in Markham next followed by two more in Richmond Hill.
