Minor Tykes (5 - 6 years) continue in player development with 20 on ice practices and 20 games. Teams are formed in September and begin their season in early October. Teams have the opportunity to participate in tournaments in surrounding areas during the season and we end with our Tim Hortons Fun Day full of games, treats and prizes!
We have a White (intermediate) and Blue (beginner) division.
NEW: BMHA is excited to announce that we have teamed up with Mariposa School of Skating to deliver a one of a kind introductory edge and skating program to the Minor Tyke age group of players for the upcoming 2017-18 season. This program (Fundamental Edge and Balance) has been specifically designed to build a foundation of balance and edge awareness that is a key first step in the development of players at this particular age and level. Players will be introduced to concepts such as forward and backward inside and outside edges through exercises that are based around detailed repetition. Each team will receive five weeks of instruction with two professional skating instructors from the Mariposa School of Skating that specializes in working with athletes at this age and level. This program is included in the registration fee. Also new this year, we will offer an introductory goalie program for interested players. More details will follow.
We also offer a Minor Tyke Player Development program as an extension of our house league Minor Tyke program. This is 12 weeks of on ice skills and drills. Players can register online in the Fall, watch our website for more information.
