How are regular practice times allotted?
Practice/Skills Ice should be assigned using the following criteria:
Under-15 and Under-18 Teams will be given afternoon or evening practices unless the team requests a morning practice time.
Under-9, Under-11 and Under-13 teams will be assigned a morning practice time. Consideration will be given to “Regional” teams and teams with coaches that work outside of Antigonish.
Tier 1 teams will receive a second practice time each week which will be an afternoon or evening ice time
Initiation groups will receive one weekend morning ice time and one weekday afternoon/evening ice time.
Skills ice sessions are to be considered as bonus ice time. This ice time does not come out of a teams’ budget and will only be provided for groups when ice is available and attendance remains at an acceptable level.
Note: Dates and times for Under-9, Under-11 and Under-13 Practice times must work around Skills ice times.
