Initiation Program Implementation (Tyke)
Submitted By Martin Steele on Friday, September 22, 2017
For your information regarding the new program as it relates to our tyke program

In the past KMHA has developed our Tyke program to reflect the needs and past practices of all other divisions in our league.
Players were divided into skill brackets and placed accordingly. Some players were allowed to move forward or up into the next division for their benefit.
In September of this year the Ontario Hockey Federation, which governs all member associations such as OMHA advised that children under seven (7) years of age will now be restricted to participate in the new Initiation Program.
This program, regardless of skill levels and local association needs requires all 5 and 6 year old players to play and practice in cross-ice/half -ice format.
There are almost no exceptions to this above rule.
Any centre not following this guideline will face severe sanctions.
KMHA understands that the first few weeks of this program with 4 teams on the ice and another 4 teams waiting to get ready to play is chaotic.
Dressing room assignments and team play will be monitored by KMHA staff who will provide an orderly solution to the program as it has been given to us.
