Clarkson runs the Hockey Canada Initiation Program, which develops specific hockey-related skills during practices. The whole Tyke program is all about fun and learning, and the coaches all work to ensure this is the main goal at all times. Clarkson Tyke contains six teams of boys and girls aged 4, 5 and 6.
Each of our 6 teams consists of 3 lines - a Red line, a White line and a Blue line. The Red line are the more developed players, through to White and then Blue.
Every effort is made to ensure that each child plays with and against players of his or her own skill level. Children can move up or down between colours as the year progresses, depending on his or her own development. This ensures that each child is consistently at the appropriate skill level and is both challenged and comfortable with the level of play that they receive.
It is not a pre-requisite that players have a background in skating, but some experience on the ice is usually beneficial even if the player has only attended a few public skates or a Parent/Tot session with the City.
