The Atom grade is for players/goalies 11 and under. Atoms is a development grade, focused on learning the basic skills of Ice Hockey. The principal of ‘equal opportunity’ in respect to even ice time will apply in all games, regardless of skill level. Both boys and girls play in Atoms. We do not keep any playing statistics for this grade and we do not show the scores on the scoreboard any time during or after the game.
Slap shots are prohibited in Atoms.
The Atom season will end with a round-robin tournament for all players registered in this grade. There will be no grand-final for this grade.
