Important poll for all VFDHC & L18 Members


The VFD hockey club is looking at options regarding the location that Monday Morning Hockey will be played. The league is currently played at Planet Ice Delta. Another option would be Planet Ice Coquitlam. We are collecting data from all active and retired VFRS & Local 18 members in order to gather information to make an informed decision. As you can imagine, this is a very important one, wether we remain at Delta or move to Coquitlam.

At this time, we are only asking for those who currently participate, or plan to participate in MMH for the 2023/24 season and/or the next few seasons to complete this survey. We are not looking for general opinions from those who do not nor have any intention in participating in MMH.

Some info:

Planet Ice Delta
10388 Nordel Crt

Pros :
* league has been established here for 20+ years.  Good rapport with the staff
* Referees already in place and same referees work GVOHA games
* On site storage locker for hockey club jerseys, equipment , etc
* Fairly easy access with respect to traffic
* Pro shop open for members needs (skate sharpening etc)

* MMH continually jockeying for ice with Delta Hockey Academy and GVOHA
* Located farther south for VFRS staff who live farther north
* Some challenges in getting ice for tournaments such as Xmas Tourney and 4 vs 4

Planet Ice Coquitlam
2300 Rocket Way

* More centrally located in the lower mainland
* Same managers & some staff as PI Delta (same management company)
* More flexibility with respect to icetimes , wide open time slots (no academies or other leagues on Mondays)

* no on site storage, VFDHC club would have to rent a locker approx 7 mins away
* Traffic crossing the Port Mann bridge at rush hour may be problematic
* May have to recruit new daytime referees as referees from Delta may not travel.
* unknown at this time of skate shop will be open
