Initiation Major

Initiation Major

Formerly know as Hockey 2, Initiation Major is for players born in 2012.

The program is geared entirely toward teaching your child the skating skills: forward, backward, stops/starts, tight turns, crossover, and pivots, along with puck skills. We will be primarily teaching them basic competitive sport concepts and sportsmanship. .

Initiation Major hockey has no league standings, no league championships, and no Banners. We don’t even keep score during games at the younger age levels. Initiation Major hockey is about one thing, and one thing only: getting more puck touches and being extremely mobile on the ice.
