The OHF has just released information regarding Initiation Program changes.


NEW for the 2018-19 season: 

The OHF will be expanding its modified-ice programming that was introduced this season at the Timbit (5 and 6 yr. old) levels, to include Tyke –aged players (2011’s). 

As of the 2018-19 season, 2011-born players will advance from cross-ice to half-ice games as they enter their Tyke year. 

This programming aims to continue the progression for players already participating in modified-ice programming.

Weekly games and practices will still be scheduled. 

Games will be conducted on half ice with no game officials. 

The focus in practices will remain station-based.


NEW for the 2019-20 Season: 

As per the Hockey Canada modified-ice mandate, those same players start their Novice season playing half-ice games and end it with full-ice games.



The Initiation Program is a progressive, learn-to-play teaching curriculum. Children learn through participating in practice drills and informal modified games. The objectives of the program are:

1.     A comprehensive program for the development of young children as hockey players.

2.     The focus is on skill development and fun without the pressures of winning.

3.     It aims to create participants and instructors who will continue in the game

4.     The motto is Fun, Fitness and Fair Play

 More details can be found in the attached news article from the OHF and from visiting the Hockey Canada website at www.hockeycanada.ca
