Intro to Hockey

Hockey Canada has approved national policies that mandate all Initiation-aged players receive age-appropriate programming on cross-ice or half-ice surfaces (effective for the 2016-17 season) and Novice-aged players for the 2019-20 season. A key aspect of each policy is that each of Hockey Canada’s 13 branches can develop a provincial model that best meets the needs of its participants.
Hockey Alberta’s Intro to Hockey Model, for all players aged 5-8 years, will be in effect for the 2019-20 season. It replaces previous models and programming at the Novice and Initiation levels. However, Minor Hockey Associations can opt to make the switch, or undertake a transition process, during the 2018-19 season.

Fort Macleod Minor Hockey Association has made the choice to implement the Intro to Hockey model for the 2018-2019 season. This decision will mean some major changes for the 5-8 year old group which will be a learning curve for everyone involved from the players to the coaches to the parents. Please help us to make this transition an enjoyable and productive step for everyone involved.
