Novice Half-Ice Program Information




Attention: Minor Hockey Associations & Community Clubs
Beginning in the 2017 – 2018 season, players in the Novice age category (7-8 yrs) will play on a modified ice surface –slightly over half the size of a normal hockey rink – until December 31st each season.  Games after December 31st within each hockey season may be played on full-ice.
Hockey Manitoba is pleased to distribute information pertaining to the new Novice Half-Ice program beginning in the 2017-2018 season.
We have developed specific guidelines to assist our Minor Hockey Associations, Community Clubs and our tremendous volunteers in the preparation, implementation and execution of half-ice hockey in the Novice age category.  This will ensure a consistent, organized delivery model across the province, and addresses many of the questions or concerns that our membership may have expressed.
Hockey Manitoba's expectation is that all Minor Hockey Associations follow the layout, format and procedures as outlined in the document.  Click below to access the document:
To ensure both Minor Hockey Associations and our officials are prepared for the new half-ice game structure, Hockey Manitoba has created an officiating procedures document.  This information will be reviewed in detail at all Hockey Manitoba Level 1 officiating clinics each season.
In addition, we have created a web page specific to the Novice Half-Ice program, complete with additional outlines, videos and information related to this progressive and positive change.  We encourage you to visit this page, and share the link below with your parents and members.
Hockey Manitoba sincerely appreciates the efforts of our thousands of volunteers across the province who dedicate their valuable time to our great game. We understand that change can sometimes be difficult, however we are confident that these modifications will benefit all Novice players as they grow and develop.
Thank you for your support!

SVMHA “A” hockey amagamation


Winnipeg, MB, March 2, 2017– Exciting news for SVMHA members! Effective in the fall of 2017 all “A” hockey in St Vital will play under one name, one jersey, one identity. Our 5 community clubs and the SVMHA board have agreed on a new jersey to represent the players of SVMHA as seen below. This will mean great things for both the players and the parents.

This new branding of St. Vital Hockey brings unity to all “A” level co-ed teams in St. Vital.  There is now one banner for all players to play under, and to represent our community. Players and families are now able to consider all the community buildings and arenas as their home facilities. Parents now don’t have to buy multiple team jackets or apparel as it is now one standard look incorporating all the original community center logos and names. This step forward is the first in strengthening our hockey program for many years to come.

                                Rydell Lasko, President of SVMHA

St Vital Chill Novice A1 Red Team with a clean sweep!

Feb 17th to 19th, the St. Vital Chill Novice A1 Red Team journeyed to Emo Ontario to play in a tournament against 2 Fort Frances teams, a Kenora Team, and the host Emo team. The Girls brought Manitoba style hockey into Ontario. After a long bus ride, two games Friday night, two games Saturday the girls went into the Championship Final on Sunday in 1st place, not only undefeated but posting a four game shut out. Playing against a strong Fort Frances team and only allowing 1 goal, the girls battled to a championship win. Congratulations to the coaches and the girls on a great representation and even better result!

St Vital Chill Red Novice A1 and Novice A2 White celebrate a Tournament Win at "The Winter Storm Classic"

After almost losing the ice due to warmth, playing through stiff competition, and then braving the freezing cold, the Novice A1 Chill Red team battled a hard fought game to pull off a 1-0 win against the Home team South Winnipeg Storm.


Chill pulled their goalie with 90 seconds left and scored with a minute left to tie the game. Overtime period and 12 rounds of a shootout didn't decide it.  The refs, tourney organizers and coaches agreed that a coin toss would have been a disservice to the girls given how well both teams played, so  both teams were crowned Co-champions.  The coaches used a coin toss was used to decide who got what hardware; the Rockets got the gold trophy and silver medals and Chill got the Silver trophy and gold medals.



Congratulations to the Glenwood Bruins A1 team who won silver at the bantam tournament in Gimli. The boys went undefeated the first day and eventually met the top division team in the gold medal final. It was an exciting game with each team exchanging goals until the end, great effort boys!
