FUNdamentals Program Information

The Ontario Women’s Hockey Association enthusiastically endorses the Hockey Canada Initiation Program (HCIP) and has named the program the OWHA Hockey FUNdamentals Program

Who Is This Program For?

Hockey Canada developed the Initiation Program to make children's first contact with hockey a safe and positive experience. It's a structured, learn-to-play hockey program 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.

Just as the future of Canadian society lies with our youth, so to does the future of hockey. Hockey Canada and the OWHA understand the important role it plays in helping beginning hockey players to develop playing attitudes and foster an enjoyment of hockey as a lifetime sport and hobby.
