PANTHER CUB HOCKEY 2019-20
Registration Opens May 1, 2019
Following Hockey Canada’s modifications to youth hockey programming, we are pleased to announce that we have finalized the modification to our program that aligns perfectly within the guidelines that will allow your child to progress and develop with the ultimate success.
Through the 2017-2018 season, we began the process of implementing the “Panthers Cubs” program (replacement to the Fundamentals program) which also included modifications to our coaching strategies to align with Hockey Canada’s guidelines.
We are proud of the trusted, reputable program that we have been running for many years and excited about the improvements we’ve tailored to encourage your girls to progress into the Central York Panthers House League (and/or Rep).

Rationale for implementing the Initiation Program (Panther Cubs).
Hockey Canada has implemented a new policy that mandates cross-ice/half-ice hockey for players at the Initiation age level (traditionally 5- and 6-year-olds) to all Minor Hockey Associations.
The purpose of the IP is to introduce the basic skills of the game, and make a child’s first introduction to the game one that is safe, enjoyable, and fun.
Cross-ice/half-ice hockey at the Initiation age effectively right-sizes the playing surface for young players:
