• About Better Player 4 on 4 Hockey

A Cut Above the Rest

Better Player's 4 on 4 Hockey League is a fun fast paced well organized option for youth wanting to play recreational spring hockey. The smaller team sizes and modified rules allow for players to skate and handle the puck more often with regular shift lengths. Most games are played at the Leduc Recreation Centre from April 18th until June 26th. All games are played weekday nights with one hour time slots with a set night for each age category.

The league is professionally run by Better Player with experienced administration staff, registered certified referees, trained timekeepers and applicable insurance for all participants.

Registration fee includes 10 week season, insurance, referees, time keepers and a jersey. Players can register online, email or in person as an individual or team.

This season we will be trying to create a competitive and recreational division for each category. Upon registration please enter what level you are interested in playing in.

What You Get From Better Player

Better Player was founded as a team of hockey instructors dedicated to providing the best learn-to-skate programs in the Edmoton area. Over the years we have helped skaters of all ages in a private and public session environment. Many of our skaters excel to new skating heights and return to take part in one of our many hockey training and development programs.

Beyond our learn-to-skate programs, Better Player offers a wide range of hockey extras to improve both individual and team performance. Our coaching clinic, stickhandling camps, shooting programs and one-on-one instruction options provide the necessities and beyond for players of all ages and teams of all levels.

The Better Player "home ice" is located in the Leduc Recreation Centre. However, we also offer dozens of skating programs at arenas in and around Edmonton. Our on-ice instruction includes skating, stickhanding, shooting and defending programs. We also work with teams and organizations to deliver our curriculum in their own environment as it applies to their specific needs and team development.

Our off-ice instruction programs are offered in and around Edmonton and at our headquarters in the Leduc Recreation Centre. Programs include coach-the-coach, audio/visual, dryland training and strength-fitness training.
