Youth Programs - Lace 'Em Up

“LACE ‘EM UP” is designed to encourage registration in local minor hockey associations by focusing on the new or first-time participant, aged 6 – 12 years.  These participants will be exposed to the game in a non-threatening, enjoyable environment through both on and off-ice activities designed to introduce the fundamental individual skills of the game along with being part of a team.

The new participants will benefit by:

  • Being introduced to a sport they can play throughout their lives, no matter what level
  • Improved fitness and overall health with increased physical activity
  • Developing social skills through participation in a team environment
  • Most importantly, HAVING FUN!

Not only do participants benefit from “LACE ‘EM UP” events, there are also numerous benefits to Minor Hockey Associations:

  • Increased registration, which in turn strengthens ability to provide programs for members
  • New registrants = new crop of volunteers
  • New faces = new ideas and more energy
  • Showcasing arenas and recreation centres
