Recreation Program

The West Hants Minor Hockey Association is pleased to offer a recreation program geared towards players aged 7-14, that want to try hockey without the travel and team commitment. This Program typically runs Friday evenings for 14 weeks between November and February.


The program consists of 14 weeks of on-Ice programing focused on developing skills and introducing new players to the game of hockey. This will be done through a variety of drills targeting skating, balance, puck handling, passing, shooting and small games.


Praise and encouragement will serve as the foundation of the coaches/volunteers’ approach to working with all players. The sessions are led by volunteer coaches, certified through Hockey Canada. Local players from the area will also be present as on ice helpers.
