Initiation Information

1660 Hockey League does not rule or governor over initiation level of hockey, it is all dictated by Hockey Alberta.

Please find below a template for categorizing your associations Initiation/Tom Thumb teams.  This may assist the parents, coaches and managers in finding competition within the skill level of their initiation team.  This concept is new and may require some fleshing out but as it develops it may be adapted by more then just our league.  The intent of this classification is to aid in finding competition around our league that is at the same skill set in the initiation level. 

All teams are requested to provide a contact for their initiation team on our web site.

For any information regarding the Initiation Team Contact Pages please contact:
