Instructional strand
This program is also referred to as Instructional with the emphasis on having FUN while learning basic skills. It is highly recommended that our new players be able to stand on skates, get up on their own using a hockey stick and preferably some basic skating skills before enrolling in the program.  The tyke division is an introduction to the game of hockey for 4 to 6 year olds.  It focuses on basic skating skill development and instruction through various games and station based activities.  In late December, players are initiated to the structure of a hockey game with an increase focus on positioning and the rules of the game. This program prepares our players for Novice House League and is always a lot of fun for the young beginners.    

Convenor for the Tyke House League program is still vacant, interested persons should contact  at their earliest convenience. Because of the nature of the program, many on-ice volunteers are required to create station based activities. Volunteers are required to have OMHA certification and a PRS. Contact Len by Email for more information.
