Parents of U7 & U9 (formerly Initiation/Novice) children registering for House League:

There have been some questions regarding the format for U7 and U9 House League next season. One objective of the PHA house league program is to provide a positive hockey experience in a fun and safe environment. This especially rings true for the kids at the younger ages. The PHA follows the OMHA guidelines and pathways for the U7 and U9 divisions. 

U7 Program & Cross Ice Hockey


Hockey Canada developed the Initiation Program to make children's first contact with hockey a safe and positive experience.  It's a structured, learn to play hockey program designed to introduce beginners to the game's basic skills. The benefits of the new U7 program include fun for all participants, age appropriate skill development, more puck touches, maximum ice usage and increased competition for all players.

U9 Program & Half Ice Hockey


The skills of skating, puck control, passing and shooting are introduced and refined one step at a time. The focus should always be on fun and skill development, but the early years of hockey should also allow young players to experience fitness, fair-play, and cooperation. Games will be played half-ice from October through December and may transition to full ice January 15 or later.
