Organization - Novice Rep Hockey for 2019/20
Submitted By Mike Watters on Friday, April 19, 2019
The OWHA has released it guidance on the 2019/20 Novice Rep hockey season and is outlined below.  This upcoming season will bring into effect the Hockey Canada Half Ice Novice program. 

 "HOW A PLAYER GETS THAT FIRST TASTE OF HOCKEY IS CRUCIAL." The Fundamental stages of Hockey Canada’s Long-Term Player Development (LTPD) Model serves as the foundation upon which the entire hockey association is built.  Youngsters at every level of play benefit from getting the “right start” in the game and it is crucial in building the skills of house league and competitive players alike.  Children learn through participating in practice drills and informal modified games which forms the basis of Long-Term Player Development (LTPD)


The introduction of the new half ice program at Novice rep will bring into effect a tiered program which will divide the age group into the following.

Novice A - This will be a team consisting of players that are born in 2011.  No players from 2012 are permitted to play Novice A.  These players will transition to a full ice program starting in January 2020.

Novice B - This team will be made up of 2011 and 2012 players.  There will be no transition to full ice hockey in January 2020.  

The goals and objectives of Initiation & Novice hockey programming are to:

 

Teach all of the basic skills of hockey so players can enjoy the game
Assist in the development and enhancement of physical literacy and basic motor patterns
Develop and encourage the concepts of being a team member through player participation in both on-ice and off-ice activities,
Encourage the aspects of fitness, fair play and co-operation while having fun playing the game.
Age-Appropriate - Designed practice and game play that is appropriate to the age, size and skill level of the participant
