The Bragg Creek Bears is a recreational hockey league open to boys and girls (ages 5-17). We are a part of Foothills Recreational Hockey League (FRHL), which is comprised of the communities of Black Diamond/Turner Valley, Cochrane, Bragg Creek, Millarville, and Priddis.


The Bragg Creek Bears pride ourselves on great sportsmanship, great skill development and great teamwork while making sure we are playing safe and having fun!

U7 (previously TYKES) ages 5 to 6
U9 (previously NOVICE) ages 7 to 8

U11 (previously ATOM) ages 9 to 10
U13 (previously PEE WEE) ages 11 to 12

U15 (previously BANTAM) ages 13-14
U18 (previously MIDGET) ages 15 to 17

Our season runs late October/early November to March with a year end tournament. There are either one or two practices and one game per week depending on division. Games are played on both indoor and outdoor ice throughout the season with the majority of our games and practices being outdoors. Weather cancellations occur as necessary.

The Bears strives to give children in the community, with widely varying hockey abilities, an equal opportunity to enjoy hockey in a non-contact and more flexible environment.  The league structure allows participants and families who may not wish to invest the time or finances needed for the minor hockey system, a chance to still enjoy the game and learn some amazing skills!
