2016-2017 AFHA Initiation Development Program
The goal of cross-ice hockey is to make a skater’s first contact with hockey a safe and positive experience. It’s a structured, learn-to-play approach designed to introduce beginners to the game’s basic skills. It enables participants to become contributing members of a team effort, develop self-confidence, and experience a sense of personal achievement. These goals are achieved in an atmosphere of fun and fair play where player development, not winning, is the main achievement.
