New Format for Beginner/Tyke Age Groups
Submitted By Nick Salaris on Thursday, April 14, 2016
PMHA is making some modifications/changes to the Beginner (Tim Bit) and Tyke age groups for the upcoming 2016/2017 season.  The reason for these changes is to provide an improved and enjoyable hockey experience for all players and families. The changes are based on guidelines from Hockey Canada and feedback receieved from parents over the last couple of seasons...

The major change is that there will be three divisions instead of two. The structure and details of each division are as follows.

Note: Please register players in the correct age group by their birth date.  There will be flexibility to move kids to the group that best suits their level of development during the first two months of the season.

Division 1 - Beginners (Tim Bits)

     For kids born in 2012 or less skilled first year players born in 2011

     2 teams at 12­/13 players

     1 ice­ time per week (Sat. 10:40­ - 11:40)

     Program will run same as Tm Bits this year

     Cost approx. $175

Division 2­ - Tyke

     Primarily for kids born in 2011 and stronger 2012[1] [NS2]  kids

     2 teams at 12­/13 players

     2 ice­ times per week

     All practices will be shared

     Cost approx. $475

Division 3­ - Tyke

     Primarily for kids born in 2010 and stronger 2011 kids

     2 teams at 12­/13 players

     When games start they play each other one week and the following week one team would travel to              Mooretown

We look forward to trying this format out to make the hockey experience more enjoyable for the players and families.

Enjoy the off-season,

PMHA
