Novice Age Program

NOVICE AGED PROGRAMMING:

As directed by our governing body, the OWHA, the Brampton Canadettes will be changing our Novice Programming for the upcoming 2019/2020 year.  The directive that comes from Hockey Canada, and supported by the OWHA and all of its associations, encompasses two main points:




1) Novice aged players are to participate in Half-Ice Programming for games and practices. The reasoning for this has been outlined by Hockey Canada. Please see the following links: 

Hockey Canada Novice Program Resource Guide

Intro to the Novice Hockey Program for Parents
Hockey Canada Policy for Novice Hockey

The Brampton Canadettes recognize and support the benefits of the development model outlined and fully support its design to develop younger aged players. 

2) Since Novice-aged programming will incorporate Half-Ice Programming, there will be no Representative Programming for the Novice age group within our organization.
All Novice-aged Canadette players will participate in a Seasonal Structure that will contain two/three phases:

Development Phase - focus on skill development (8 weeks, 16 practices, 4 Half-ice games)
Regular Season Phase - (20 weeks, 36 practices, 8 Half-ice games, 8 full ice games in second half)
Game Play Phase/Transition Phase - (TBD, full ice-games) schedule permitting.

Additional details can be found here:

Novice Hockey Seasonal Structure

While there will no longer be a Novice Representative Program, our organization will continue to work with players that are identified as High Performance candidates for Atom Representative. Players will be evaluated during the early stages of the Novice season, and selected to participate in additional High Performance skill development. 

The High Performance skill development will come at an additional cost that will include additional hours of development ice per week.  

The Novice Programming was endorsed by:

Don Stoddart
President

Peter Gout
Director of Hockey Operations/General Manager

Tina Kelloway
Director of House League

Navinder Biln
Director of Representative

And was passed by our Executive Board.
