This program is designed to enhance basic skills such as forward skating, stopping, backward skating, pivots, and puck handling using a variety of on-ice games, station based activities and structured drills. The program will also teach the young players the basic rules of the game, and a code of conduct based on fair play and good sportsmanship. The emphasis is on having FUN while learning. Players are encouraged to try their hand at both offensive and defensive positions.



Goalie equipment is provided by Port Colborne Minor Hockey to provide all players the opportunity to play at the goaltender position during the year.

This program is the grass roots development for minor hockey in Port Colborne as well as across Canada.

PCMHA believes that every child should be encouraged to play every position during their early years.
