Updates for Initiation Program this year from Hockey Canada!!!

Beginning in the 2017-18 season, Hockey Canada is implementing a new policy that mandates cross-ice/half-ice hockey for players at the Initiation age level (traditionally 5- and 6-year-olds).

This change has also been reflected in our registration prices for this age category.
