INITIATION U7 - SENIOR TIMBITS
U7 - Senior Timbits -
Sr. Timbits is an introduction to hockey where the children will have practices as well as play games.
- For the 2021-2022 season those born in 2015 are designated to the Sr Timbits program.
- A child can register in SR Timbits even if they have not participated in Discovery or Jr Timbits.
- This program focuses on development of forward and backward skating, stopping, puck handling, and an introduction to the game of hockey.
- Equally skilled groups/teams of an average of 10 -12 players are formed after a preseason skate.
- Third-ice games are played (i.e. boards separate the ice surface into thirds and two games are played at the same time on the end surfaces with active rest in the middle).
- Callingwood Arena will be closed for the upcoming season - we are hoping to get ice at Castledowns and Bill Hunter (TBD).
- All practices/games will be held on Saturday / Sunday.
- Games are non-competitive with no score kept.
- No regular goalies – players rotate through all positions, including goaltender. No goalie equipment is used.
- Emphasis on skating and learning basic hockey skills with an introduction to team concept.
- 18 Skill Development Sessions and 18 Small Area Game Sessions from October to March.
- Winter Jamboree March 2022 (To be confirmed)
