“Full ice” doesn’t mean full ice

There is already some discussion about when games will use full ice and when “Fun games” in other leagues will start.

There are some simple rules laid out by Hockey Canada:

No games are allowed until late November

There is no score kept in games, no winners and no champions in Initiation hockey.

Ice is extremely limited and expensive ($230 per 50 minutes). The NMHA gets us as much ice as they can given the restrictions of the amount of money paid at registration. I have lots of plans for fun activities for our players and their families. Once these have been approved they can be sanctioned  and the information passed on to all of you. Fun tournaments will not be one of these activities. There will be no “Fun tournament” where other Initiation teams come to play with us. Some associations will have them but be warned they are very expensive based on what the players will get out of it.

I laugh every time I see it. It is what “full ice” looks like to a young child – In the video they compare it to an eight year old’s view…Double the rink size in the video to get what it looks like to a 4 or 5 year old!

This is one main reason why our games will be across the ice so that players can be actively involved.

Since games do not start until late November I will not go over the organization until a little closer to that date.

See you Saturday!
