Initiation Program 2013-2014 (age 5-6)

The Initiation Programs is a progressive, learn-to-play teaching curriculum. Players learn though participating in practice drills and informal cross-ice games featuring lighter pucks (4oz blue) and smaller nets (3’ x 4’ or smaller). The Initiation Program introduces the skills of skating, passing, puck control, and shooting in a progressive, one-step-at-a-time manner.


The focus for Hockey Canada’s Initiation program is on skill development and FUN without the pressure of winning. At this age, there are no referees, no playoffs, no goalies and no score keeping.
