U5 Little Howlers Intro to Hockey (one ice time per week for 10 weeks, first session begins in October; second session begins in Jan)

U5 Little Howlers Intro to Hockey is a learn to skate program for beginner skaters aged 3-5.

The goal is to familiarize young skaters with the "on ice" experience. The arena introduces a variety of new challenges for our young skaters with bright lights, loud noises and cold temperatures. Some children will adapt quickly and for others this will take time. The program is designed as a group learning experience as opposed to one on one. Each skater is required to wear full CSA approved hockey equipment, including helmet, mask, mouth and neck guards. Although sticks may not be used early on in the program they could be used later. 

New skaters must provide a copy of their birth certificate
U5 PARENTS REQUIRE THE MANDATORY OMHA RESPECT IN SPORT PARENT PROGRAM, direct link above.


U7 2 Icetimes per Week. Games to commence with neighboring centers after initial U7 Pathway Development.

This program is for children with a basic skating knowledge aged 4-7
Full CSA approved hockey equipment is required including sticks. 
U7 Major and Minor teams will be selected after the first few ice times by coaching staff. 
These team will continue to practice and have weekly games against our Southern Counties affiliates. 

New skaters must provide a copy of their birth certificate.
