The EHMHA has decided to combine the two age groups to make up our Novice teams. Now that we will be playing Acton,weare aligning ourselves with them to make the Novice Division the same. The children will play full ice this year.

Important note for next year.

We want to make sure all 2011 aged players know what is going to be happening next year 2019/2020.As per HockeyCanada, all 2011 players will be required to play half ice for the first half of the year and then move to full ice for the rest oftheyear. This is a mandate from Hockey Canada for the 2019/2020 season. All hockey associations will be following thisguideline.
