PRE-NOVICE: IP FEMALE DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM
Submitted By roadrunners Hockey on Tuesday, July 24, 2018
Hockey Canada has introduced a new Initiation Program policy, putting the focus on cross-ice and half-ice programming. In accordance with Hockey Canada, CrGHA will be implementing the new program this upcoming season.

Beginning in the 2017-18 season, Hockey Canada is implementing a new policy that mandates cross-ice/half-ice hockey for players at the Initiation age level (traditionally 5- and 6-year-olds).While the policy making it mandatory is new, half-ice/cross-ice hockey has been part of the Initiation Program since it was first developed more than 35 years ago. The purpose of the IP is to introduce the basic skills of the game, and make a child’s first introduction to the game one that is safe, enjoyable, and fun.

The program is based with the players' development in mind and to make children's first contact with hockey a fun, safe and positive experience. It's a structured, learn to play hockey program designed to introduce beginners to the game's basic skills. It enables participants to become contributing members of a team effort, develop self-confidence, and experience a sense of personal achievement. These goals are achieved in an atmosphere of fun and fair play.

The Cambridge roadrunners call this program Pre-Novice.
