Important

As of 2018, we have conformed with the new regulations from Hockey Canada and held our Novice games cross ice. We strongly believe in the benefits of that structure with more players touching the puck and being involved in the play resulting to more plays at the net.

“The research clearly shows, and parents should be looking at this, that their children are more actively engaged, which means they have the puck with them a greater number of times, they have the puck on their stick for a longer period of time, they’re interacting with the other players to a greater extent. They’re having to make more decisions, they’re having to control their bodily motions. So the whole milieu of key performance indicators is raised.”
