As a follow up to the recent implementation of the Initiation Program, beginning in the 2020-2021
season all Hockey Canada Members will be mandated to follow the Novice and Atom Player Pathways. The Player Pathways are progressive, learn to play development guides that support the player development continuum from Initiation Programming through to Atom. The Pathways outline optimal seasonal structures and age appropriate development guidelines.
The Ontario Hockey Federation (OHF) and its Members (OMHA, NOHA, OWHA, OHA, OHL, ALLIANCE, GTHL) will be active in working with and supporting Minor Hockey Associations through the transition and implementation of the player pathways. Age appropriate and modified ice programming will remain the core principles of the Player Pathways.
