Based on feedback received from Clubs, IHNSW’s Executive Committee are currently conducting a comprehensive review of all junior ages and grades. This also includes the recent discussions around cross ice for Squirts and Elite pathways for female players.
The purpose of the review is based on concerns around development and opportunities, and we want to ensure that our players are supported in a safe, yet challenging environment.
We are consulting experts including the IHA Player Development Director, to ensure we are aligning the restructure with the IHA Long Term Athlete Development Program. Our focus is the long-term success of our players, while continuing to grow our sport.
