PrintNew to Hockey & 4-6 Yr old Registration info

4-6 year Olds/Initiation Level  -  Pelham Hockey School and Junior Panthers

o   Participants should have basic skating skills prior to considering signing up with PMHA Hockey School or Junior Panthers programs.  Children need to be able to be on the ice without a parent and must be able to fall down, stand up, move on their own and be independent on the ice.   Our hockey programs teach hockey skills, we would advise starting with a Learn-to-Skate program if your child needs to learn skating skills.

o   Ice times are on a week night, generally Thursday, and Saturday mornings

o   Every player takes a turn at being the goalie

o   Assessments will be conducted at the start of the season to ensure every child is in the correct division.

o   Please note - The PMHA reserves the right to refund registration monies if determined that a participant cannot meet these criteria within the first month of the program.



Hockey School is for all 4 year olds and any 5 & 6 year olds that are new to hockey. 

Participants can be moved to Junior Panthers if skills indicate such.

We follow the predesigned Hockey Canada program for skill building at this age, there are no formal games or travelling involved. 

All ice times are in the Meridian Community Centre in Pelham.

This program will see the players always on the ice together in one group. This level is strictly about learning the skills of hockey through small area games, skill stations and is all about having fun and learning! 


Junior Panthers is for 5 & 6 year olds; a participant can be moved to Hockey School if more work on their skills would be best for them.  Players at this level are generally not in their first year of hockey.

This program will be compliant with the Hockey Canada regulations of half ice programming.

Players will participate on teams with a Coach and a Trainer. The team will be comprised of 12 participants.  Games will be played with rotating 5 players and a rotating goalie.

Players will participate in cross ice games after the first few weeks.

This level will be “in house” only for the first half of the season.  Teams are allowed to participate in Jamboree’s during the second half of the season.
