Atom Development Model

As all minor hockey associations must operate under the mandate of BC Hockey and Hockey Canada, our Association is tasked with implementing directives from them while still providing a program that best suits our membership. With the significant changes mandated to the youngest age groups of Initiation and Novice, the first opportunity to play organized hockey is Atom age which is also, for many, their first season of tiered hockey.

Due to these changes, our focus in the Atom division has shifted, allowing us to use resources to best develop these young players and create a strong foundation for success before they reach the age groups where hockey officially becomes more competitive. With all of this taken into account, we are pleased to announce a solid development program for our Atom teams beginning this coming season. All Atom A division teams will have a professional coach attend all practice/development ice times focusing on building a foundation of positional play while continuing the growth of personal skill development.

Working on the ice with the professional coach will be volunteer coaches who will be assisting with all practices and running the bench during game play where they will be able to reinforce the lessons taught during practises and development. The Coach application process will not be finalized until the final team selection process has been completed.
