CHANGE TO TYKE PROGRAM: 2017-2018 SEASON
Submitted By Louis Kyron on Monday, July 31, 2017
Changes to Tyke Hockey – NEW for 2017-18 Season Hockey Canada has mandated changes to Initiation level hockey (traditionally 5-6 year olds) requiring all minor hockey associations to adopt cross ice\half ice hockey.  Moving to an age appropriate ice surface is supported by the WGHA. The Tyke House League program has been renamed to “Initiation” to be consistent with Hockey Canada.  

The structure of our intiation (tyke) program will be similar to the previous tyke program as it will consist of two ice slots per week with the biggest change being games conducted on a half ice surface with no officials.   The objective of the initiation program is to create a comprehensive program for the development of young children as hockey players, the focus is on skill development and fun without the pressures of winning and it aims to create participants and instructors who will continue in the game.The motto is Fun, Fitness and Fair Play.   More details can be found by clicking here.
