House league hockey is not an S.7 expense. Your likelihood to succeed on collecting the funds is very low.

You can't demand the other parent take the children and 99% of house league hockey programs will accommodate this situation where one parent doesn't take the child/ren to games/practices on their time.

My recommendation would be to pay for the hockey and equipment. Take the children when they are with you. Enjoy the experience and hopefully the children will talk so positively about it the other parent will get involved... Because that is what a good parent would do when their child shows a genuine interest in something.

Or even better. The other parent just asks you to take the children (while they are with you) to their hockey games and practices and you get to spend even more time with the children.

Maximizing your time with the children and at activities they enjoy only makes for a positive experience for the children and is truly in their best interests. If the other parent isn't interested in doing that... That is their prerogative but, it doesn't reflect well on them and children WILL remember going to hockey with you when they get older and look back on the good memories of their childhood.

Good Luck!
