SUPER NOVICE DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM
UNDER 9 (7/8 YRS OLD)
"Super Novice" Enhanced Development Program
As a result of Ontario Minor Hockey Association (OMHA), no longer providing players the opportunity to play select at Minor Novice (7 years) and Novice (8 years), N.A.S.C. Hockey will be offering our enhanced and very successful development program N.A.S.C. "Super Novice Development" program
We suggest that you register early to ensure your spot in this one of a kind development program!
N.A.S.C. Hockey was the FIRST association to offer this type of development program.
N.A.S.C. Hockey offers a special program to those players aged 7 and 8 years of age the opportunity to develop within a formalized development division and attend a specialized structured skills development program each week taught by renowned Power Skating instruction team at “Scary Skate”!
Players will be on the ice three (3) sessions on ice per week. Saturday and Sunday with their team coaches and on Monday evenings with Scary Skate specialized skill development.
The program is designed to challenge those players with the focus on individual skill development of skating and puck skills.
Teams in the Under 9 Division will be formed with thirteen (13) players per team (12 skaters - 1 goalie) as their format is 4-on-4 with every player being provided the opportunity to rotate through the goaltender position.
All players will participate in half-ice scrimmages satisfying the Hockey Canada requirement leading up to the full-ice transition in January.
As Under 9 teams transition to full-ice games/scrimmages after January 15th, all players will face their full team opponent with goaltenders and referees. This allows for Exhibition scrimmages to be played throughout the remainder of the season with opportunities to experience full-ice which will be provided after January 15th of the current season.
It must be understood however, that 7 year old players, will revert back to 1/2 ice in the upcoming season until they progress to the Under 11 age group.
