Tickets are available for pick up and drop off on Sundays from Noon to 3:00 pm at Membertou.

The draw is EVERY SUNDAY at Membertou Sport & Wellness Centre.

The first draw of the season is Sunday, September 24, 2023.   There will be approximately 27 weekly draws. 
You have to have all of your tickets sold by the final draw in March and any unsold tickets turned in. 
You will be billed for tickets that are not returned as unsold. Please take only the amounts you intend to sell. 
The draw administrators don't want to print a lot of tickets that go unsold by the end of the season.

It is important that all players engage with this opportunity. It not only benefits your personal player account, at 25 cents per ticket sold, but it invests in the overall program like coach development, timekeepers, referees and year end awards and all the other development experiences that make great hockey moments for the kids.


CBMHP Policy 2023-24






1.  Pick up tickets under your player’s name.  Withdraw an amount of tickets that you estimate you will sell.  Treat the tickets like money. You are responsible for ALL of your tickets. Any unsold tickets must be turned in before the last draw of the season. Tickets are valued at $1.00.

2.  Bring the sold tickets and money to Membertou for drop off every Sunday between 12 noon and 3:00 pm before the draw.  You can make arrangements for someone else to drop off your tickets if you can’t make it.

4.  The sold tickets are attributed to your player’s account.  You will be updated throughout the season about your totals and values.

5.  Each Blizzard family must sell a minimum of 400 tickets. A player can opt out of ticket sale obligations for a $200 fee at registration. We strongly encourage families to choose the ticket sales route as it enhances the overall draw.

6. If you sell enough to cover your account balance, the remaining can be applied to next year’s registration or sport and educational related costs i.e. summer hockey camps, travel and tournament costs, new equipment, etc.

This is an exciting opportunity to invest in the future of girls hockey in CBRM.
