Wild Initiation Program!!!! 
The Wild Initiation Program is a program for young girls.  It is designed to introduce young players to the game of hockey.  The players will spend approximately 50 minutes on the ice each week learning the fundamentals of the game from skating to stick handling to the game itself.  We will start the year with fundamental sessions and gradually introduce the game concept through scrimmages and exhibition games against other Initiation teams from neighbouring centres.

The emphasis of this program is fun and basic skill development!!

Who is this program for?
The Initiation program is for girls age 4 to 6 as of December 31st.  Players who are 6 years old also have the option of playing U9 depending on their skill level.

What is the cost of the Initiation Program?
For the 2019-20 season, the cost of the Wild Initiation Program was $210.

How do I register?
Our Registration page on this website contains the registration information for this season.  You can also contact our registrar at [email protected].

What if hockey is so much fun that your 6 year old daughter asks to play U9 Local League after you have registered in the Initiation Program?
If, before the end of October, you feel your 6 year old daughter should be in the U9 Local League program rather than the Initiation Program, you can contact our registrar at [email protected] to determine whether there is space available.  The additional fees for U9 Local League will be payable at that time if a spot is available.
