In 2019-2020 WNGHA will be implementing the new Hockey Canada requirements for Novice Programs (ages 8 and under). This program represents a major shift in the way that hockey for young children is played focusing on fun, skills and half ice play. The program is designed to promote player skill development by increasing the amount of time each player touches, passes, and shoots the puck. The core elements for this model are using running time, changing on the fly, no offside, no icing, and no face-offs after goals.
