Initiation Minor

Initiation Minor

Formerly known as Hockey 1, Initiation Minor is for players born in 2013. 

The Hockey 1 Program is designed for beginner hockey players of all abilities, and focuses on individual skills, with one or two scrimmages a year. The program goal is to make all the kids feel good about themselves while having fun and learning skills specific to playing hockey. We encourage parents who are interested in learning basic on ice aid or coaching a team in future years, to help on the ice with the kids. Eventually run a practice when they feel comfortable.

For registration of  players born later than 2013 please contact
