Initiation Program 2017-2018 Season

Ancaster Minor Hockey is proud to offer a full Initiation Program for all children looking to learn the game and have fun. From 4 years of age, our players can come out and learn to skate and learn this great game in a fun, encouraging environment.



CHIPs Program (4 Years of Age or First Step)
Our CHIPs program runs on Saturday mornings and teaches the basics of skating and movement on the ice. Children must wear full hockey gear on the ice, and will be coached to stand, move, skate and play over a 20 week program running from October through the beginning of March.

Children are on the ice one hour per week (7:30 am or 8:30 am or 9:30 am) on Saturday mornings at Morgan Firestone Arena.

We are thrilled to once again have Kelly Reed Hockey providing the coaching and support on the ice for all sessions for the 2017/2018 Season!

If you have questions about this program, please contact our Director, Initiation Program –Nick Montecchia at [email protected].

Mites Program (5 Years of Age)
As a second step on our children’s hockey journey, our Mites program is broken into 4 teams with a full coaching staff. Teams are on the ice 2 hours a week for a 20 week season, with a practice on Saturday mornings (7:00 am or 8:00 am) and game on Sunday mornings at 8:00 a.m. Practice and Games are at Morgan Firestone.

Games are played on a half-ice surface, allowing for better engagement in the play and connection with the action.  Basic hockey skills and continued skating development are our primary focus.

For the 2017/2018 season, we are happy to welcome back Leo Paone to the AMHL, offering on-ice support to both our players and coaches to help deliver a highly successful development experience.

Tyke Program (6 Years of Age)
As our kids start to get the hang of their skating and movement on the ice, we continue their development with our Tyke program. Again, teams are formed with a full coaching staff, and our kids are on the ice for 2 hours each week of a 20 week season, with a practice on Friday evenings (5:30 pm or 6:30 pm) and game on Sunday mornings at 9:00 a.m. Practice and Games are at Morgan Firestone.

This year the entire season will be played on a half-ice surface, as mandated by Hockey Canada, helping our kids to actively participate and master their hockey skills. 

For the 2017/2018 season, we have again secured additional practice time – allowing kids to stay on the ice for a fully guided development practice after their Sunday game for an additional hour!

For the 2017/2018 season, we are happy to welcome Leo Paone to the AMHL, offering on-ice support to both our players and coaches to help deliver a highly successful development experience.
