Atom hockey continues with the formation of tiered teams that play city-wide. The players will still vary from beginners that are learning basic hockey skills to those that have more experience.
A child can register in Atom even if they have not participated in the Discovery, Timbits or Novice programs.
9 and 10 year old's as of December 31
Tiered teams of 12 to 16 players are formed after an evaluation process that occurs over 3 or more skates during the month of September.
The purpose of tiering is to have similarly skilled players on each team that are also playing against similarly skilled players from other clubs throughout the Hockey Edmonton program.
Games will be held throughout the city and surrounding area.
Locations of practices vary in arenas throughout the city.
Games and practices will be held on both weekday evenings and weekends.
Games will be played with Referees and scores are kept.
There are regular goalies that have evaluated as goalies on most teams - number of goalies for the particular year permitting.
Development of skating and hockey skills considers the skill level of the team.
A minimum of 20 games and 20 practices (some will be half ice) from September to March. Most ice times will be on Saturday and Sunday but there will be weekday afternoons and evening ice times as well.
