Programming Change to IP 2 and Tyke Select B (Minor Tyke)
Submitted By STMHA on Thursday, June 29, 2017
 Earlier this year Hockey Canada announced new policy mandating cross-ice/half ice hockey for all Initiation-aged players.  

This policy is effective immediately and begins with the upcoming 2017-18 season.  It will have an immediate impact on players with the 2011 birth year.  Please read directly from Hockey Canada's website:

St. Thomas Minor Hockey has already been operating cross ice and/or half ice programming at the IP 1 (Initiation Program 1) level for many years now.

Under direction of the Ontario Minor Hockey Association and Hockey Canada we will be expanding (or continuing) this cross ice / half ice programming to IP 2 for the upcoming 2017-2018 season.

This policy change will also affect our Tyke Select B (Minor Tyke) program for the upcoming season.  More information will be shared with interested parents/players as it becomes available to STMHA from the OMHA.

In the meantime if there are any questions or concerns please direct them to STMHA at the following email address:
