The Development Stream (DS) program is a subset of House League offered on a tryout basis to players who:
Are you looking for a development path to Competitive (Rep) Hockey or
Do not wish to make the commitment, in time or cost, to Competitive hockey but are seeing more competition and skill development than is afforded by House League play
All players registered in House League are eligible to try out for the DS team in their age group. It is important to note that the DS program supplements the House League program - i.e. all DS players must be registered in House League and must attend House League games and practices regularly. This may result in players having two games/practices on the same day.
We are planning to have teams in U11, U13, U15 and U18
In accordance with OWHA rules, DS teams are permitted to play no more than 8 games and 3 tournaments during the House League season. DS players will typically be on the ice once a week in addition to their regular House League games and practices.

Practice times are posted on the DS scheduling pages.
