Full–Ice Or Cross–Ice Games

Hockey is a game of keep–away.

The entire purpose of the game of hockey is to NOT let the other team have the puck. So games are NOT designed to "touch the puck". This is true for soccer and basically any sport. Games are a time to keep the puck away from the other team as much as possible either through personal skill or team work.

As our Head Coach states, "Practices are for touching the puck, not games."

It has been said that cross–ice or half–ice games are better because players "touch the puck" more often. Sometimes this may be true, but not always.

Grand River Minor Hockey Offers Both For Beginners

Beginning in the 2019–20 season we will be offering both types of programs at the Pre–Tyke Tyke (6–7 years) division.

Half–Ice is only $16.00 per week!!

Players in the Novice Division (8 years) and older will always be full–ice games.

All schedules are on our Games & Rosters page.

Two Children at Hockey Face Off

Providing children in Hespeler Ontario Canada the opportunity to develop their skating skills, hockey skills and interacting with your new and returning teammates is all part of what we offer.

House League Hockey is often one of the first programs a child may join to start playing hockey. For this reason, we try to use a combination of teaching and freedom to experiment within our sessions.

Too much emphasis on rules and high levels of structure can stifle the child's creativity and motivation. We try to balance these things with enough structure to play hockey but not so much structure to remove the fun.

We try to teach the following:

  • Shooting
  • Passing
  • Puck Handling
  • Skating Skills
  • Positional Play
  • Game Strategies
  • Professionally Coached Practices by Our Staff

All schedules are on our Games & Rosters page.
