All players will be evaluated during the first two sessions by NVMHA Hockey Operations. Based on these evaluations, we will identify players who may be ready for U7. These families will be given the option to stay with U6 or move to U7.

At NVMHA, we strongly believe that U6 is an excellent environment for young kids, providing a crucial step in their development. Our expert team carefully considers each player's readiness, and only those who are clearly prepared for U7 will be given this option. Please note, staying in U6 for further development is a great choice. Our goal is to ensure that each player develops at a pace that is best for their long-term growth and success.
