Intro to hockey


2015 - 2016
The goals and objectives of the SAMHA U9 Intro to Hockey programming are to:
  • Teach the basic skills of hockey so players can enjoy the game.
  • Assist in the development and enhancement of physical literacy and basic motor patterns.
  • Deliver an appropriate program for the players' size, skill, and age.
  • Encourage the aspects of fitness, fair play and cooperation while having fun playing the game.
SAMHA U9 players can expect to be grouped with like-skilled players.
Teams will play a small-area game and practice weekly. Most games and practices will be on Saturday and Sunday. Teams will travel regionally to play neighbouring associations. Tier One and Tier Two teams have increased travel.



SAMHA will do its best to make accommodations for players and their families; however, we are unable to guarantee that we can fulfill all requests.

Please note the request must be reciprocated by the other family to be considered.
