Major Novice (U9) changes to FULL ICE today!
Submitted By Aministration on Wednesday, January 15, 2020
Today is the day! Since the start of the season, players have been focusing on developing the basic skills of hockey through increased playing time and puck touches on a half-ice playing surface. Now, Major Novice (U9) players can transition to a full-ice playing surface for their practices and games. Major Novice (U9) teams can also participate in full-ice tournaments.

With the transition to full-ice comes changes to how the game structure will be called. Offsides and icings will be called by the officials as well as penalties.




The coaches responsibility remains to develop all players to contribute to the outcome of a game, regardless of skill or ability. Fair and as close to equal ice time should be given to every player on the team, including on special teams and end of game situations.
