2017-18 Novice (7/8) Half Ice Program

Beginning in the 2017 – 2018 season, all 7-8 year-old players will be combined in the Novice age category and play on a modified ice surface –slightly over half the size of a normal hockey rink – until December 31st each season.  Games after December 31st within each hockey season may be played on full-ice.

The modifications to the 7-8 program will see Hockey Winnipeg’s 8A1 program replaced with the Novice A division.  Further information about Novice A tryouts will be provided during the registration period.

All 7-8 parents, please review the following information:
