The U7 division continues to be sponsored by Tim Hortons! The U7 Timbits Program is a mandated program in Calgary for 5 and 6-years old. The program focuses on skill development and the FUNdamentals of the game for the participants, coaches and parents. The U7 Program and its Rules and Regulations are all outlined on the Hockey Calgary website.
Typically, U7 Junior are made up of participants who are 5-years old and the U7 Senior are 6-years old. However, it is possible to have either age in each category. Decisions for placement are determined through a simple evaluation process mid to late September.
Hockey Canada announced mandatory ½ Ice Hockey for the U7 Program starting in the 2017-2018 season across all Minor Hockey Associations in the country. The U7 Program provides children the opportunity to learn fundamental movement and fundamental sport skills in a quality sport program tailored just for them.
COACHING in U7
EQUIPMENT & CARE
- Hockey sticks should be between the child’s chin and nose --- while ON skates.
- Hockey Tape should also be put on both the ‘butt end’ and blade of the stick.
- Skates ‘out of the box’ are NOT sharp. They will need to be sharpened prior to the participants first skate session.
Thanks to Tim Horton's, each participant in U7 receives a Timbits jersey that they get to wear for the season. The jerseys must be worn during each practice, game and tournament that the team takes part in. No name bars and or sponsor bars are permitted on the jerseys
