Novice Player Pathway
Submitted By Deb Larsen on Friday, December 21, 2018
The Ontario Hockey Federation (OHF) has released a memo regarding Novice Player Pathway Implementation for the 2019-2020 and 2020-2021 seasons.

The most significant element of the memo speaks to the issue of spring tryouts in 2019. Spring tryouts, as currently managed, will continue for the 2019-2020 season at the novice age division. Beginning for the 2020-2021 season, evaluations and tryouts will move to a fall model for mandated implementation at the novice division.

The other elements of programming for Novice, including the half-ice/full ice transition model, will be as communicated previously, and are included in the ‘Programming Novice and Below – Association Implementation Guide’ document as published. In your review of this document, please also note that the naming of what had previously been known as the ‘Tyke’ Division (7 year-old) will now be known as ‘Minor Novice’. This will align the naming of this division with the rest of Hockey Canada.

Hockey Canada, through the OHF, will also be delivering the Atom Player pathway requirements and considerations for implementation in the 2020-2021 season, and it is expected that among the requirements, the Fall Evaluation/Tryout model will also be mandated for this age division. It is anticipated that the release of the confirmed Atom Pathway documentation will be released from Hockey Canada approximately January 15, 2019, and we will be communicating this to our stakeholders once it has been received.
