Highlighting Cross-Ice Hockey in Action
Submitted By Development on Tuesday, February 12, 2019
Adding to the growing list of resources to provide to associations for cross-ice and half-ice programming, Hockey Canada has released a video highlighting a half-ice hockey game in action.

The video further supports coaches and administrators in carrying out Programming Novice and Below.

The roll-out plan that started this past season will take continue to take place this year in Tyke and next year in the Novice age group. 

Limited whistles and rules emphasis in the programming allows players to stay involved and engaged in the play. It puts the focus back on the physical literacy part of movement skills while introducing the basic, fundamental technical skills specific to hockey.

In the video, the rink is setup with dividers that split the ice surface into two. It explains how to utilize nets and benches and maximizing space and use of the ice.The basic rules, including the division of playing time, are also shown. There is a referee on the ice keeping an eye on the play and the video explains how to call penalties and what to do when the puck is frozen or a goal is scored.

Since there is no offside or icing called, the action is always flowing and the players remain engaged throughout.



The Hockey Canada Modified-Ice Hockey Program
As everyone has been advised, hockey programs across Canada are now on modified ice (see figures below) for players 8 years old and younger. DMHA already has a fully developed and implemented Hockey Initiation Program for 4, 5, and 6 year old players. Starting in 2018/19 Season we will be continuing with the same, and adding a similar Modified-Ice Program for the 7 year old (Tyke) players. The 8 year old players (Novice) will be implemented in the 2019/20 Season.

Below are a few graphics and links outlining how the Novice and below seasons should run. More information can also be found on our click -  DMHA Pre Novice Handbook
