The Merchants program provides a brand of hockey that is developmental yet competitive. Players can usually find balance between their time on and off the ice. Most typically can work or go to school and still play competitive junior hockey. The Merchants organization is also a strong supporter of post-secondary education. Bursaries are made available to qualifying players through our Alumni Scholarship Program.

The Merchants Board is a group of volunteers who establish and follow a responsible budget that supports all team operations. Revenue comes from modest player fees, sponsorships, and fundraising initiatives. Expenses for the team include ice time, officials, and operating costs that average approximately $60,000 per year or higher.
