Timbits Learn To Play Program

CANCELLED - the 2020 Timbits Learn to Play Program hosted by Hockey Calgary is officially cancelled. We are saddened to have to cancel this wonderful annual event for incoming U7 Timbit Players. However, do to complications arising from the pandemic, we do not feel we can safely offer the program with association hockey starting up so quickly afterwards. Thank you for your understanding and we look forward to bringing back the event in 2021. 


The Timbits Learn to Play Hockey Program will provide parents, coaches and first time Timbit players an opportunity to experience Timbits Hockey and in a fun and educational environment.  

Players will participate in four (4) ice sessions conducted by instructors from Hockey Calgary with the assistance of volunteers designed around the FUNdamentals of hockey. Parents will benefit by attending the mandatory parents meeting presented by Hockey Calgary Executive Director, Kevin Kobelka where they will receive a copy of the Timbits Manual and have an opportunity to ask questions or share any concerns they may have.
