KIWANIS HOCKEY ANNOUNCES IMPROVEMENTS TO OUR TYKE HOCKEY PROGRAM
4 on 4 CROSS ICE
We are excited to announce continued improvements to our developmental hockey program for our youngest hockey participants, TYKE.
The changes to the TYKE program will provide smaller playing surfaces better matched to the size of our younger players and promote skill development and a positive experience as well as fun. This approach is strongly supported by both Hockey Canada and Hockey USA.
The concept of small ice hockey is simple. The Bill Burgoyne Arena ice surface will be reduced in size for games using rink dividers, thus giving our younger players an opportunity to play the game on a sheet of ice better suited to their size. Players in this program are small and therefore their rinks should be small.
This small ice program helps young players develop their puck handling and playmaking skills because there are more opportunities to touch the puck. It also helps them make quicker decisions because they play in a smaller space. Players handle the puck more frequently and as a result have more fun.
Kiwanis Hockey believes that these changes will both strengthen the skills development of its youngest participants, while increasing the enjoyment of the game for both its players and their families.
The fee for TYKE hockey in the 2016 - 2017 Hockey season will be $375.00 per player. There will possibily be an option for the Tyke Development Program costing an extra $100.00 for an extra hour practice during the week throughout the season (more on this later).
