Thanks to our sponsor Tim Hortons, Hockey Calgary is able to run the Timbits Program which is a developmental league for kids aged 5 and 6. With the sponsorship dollars received from Tim Hortons, Hockey Calgary is able to purchase jerseys, host the Timbits Jamboree, purchase pucks, provide each player with a Timbits Medal and operate a learn to play hockey program for first year Timbits players.
The Timibits program is a mandated program in Calgary for the Initiation division for 5 and 6 year olds. The program focuses on skill development and the FUNdamentals of the game for the players, coaches and parents. On average there are over 100 teams that make up the Timbits Age Category in Zone 9– Hockey Calgary. The Timbits Program and its rules and regulations are all outlined within the Timbits Program Guide.
