The Canandaigua Knights will be offering two cross ice format 8 and under level programs for the 2013-2014 season, a RWB 'A' team as well as our Traditional RWB 'B' in house program. There continues to be a cross ice mandate at all Under age 8 levels within New York State and USA Hockey.  The RWB 'B' Team program is an in-house league with approximately 4 teams that play scheduled games at the GCCC.


Interested players will be evaluated and selected for the RWB A team at the beginning of the season, and this team will participate in the Empire League as in years past with the traditional Knight's jersey and will have their own 1/2 sheet of practice ice during the week. The details of the Empire League game format are still being completed.


Canandaigua Knights Hockey is proud to announce our 3nd season of the In-House Red, White and Blue Hockey League! Our In-House league will be played at the Greater Canandaigua Civic Center and will be focused on creating a fun atmosphere with friendly competition in which hockey skills can be developed.  This league is replacing our Mite B and Mighty Knights Programs.  This league will follow an "in-house" format. We will create several teams, with equal skill level, from our organization that will play each other on the weekend in a round robin format. This league is designed for any RWB age player (8 and under by 12/31/2008) with at least one year of experience at the beginner level.
