Hockey Canada – Player Development Programs and Resources


“Welcome to Hockey Canada Programs. Here you will find alternatives on how you can get involved in hockey. We want all Canadians involved in the game, so we are creating more opportunities for more people to play hockey in more ways.

Our belief is that when more people play, our country comes together, our game gets stronger and we have a healthy pipeline to support our aspirations for the game and our high-performance programs. From big cities to small towns, adult rec to youth leagues and driveway pick-up, volunteer coaches to team managers and officials – if you play this sport, in this country, you are our most important focus.”  www.hockeycanada.ca/en-ca/hockey-programs
