Fun is key in OGHA's FUNdamentals program

FUNdamentals is the OGHA's initiation to hockey program for 4-, 5- and 6-year-olds. It is a structured, learn-to-play hockey program that uses Hockey Canada’s Initiation Program (HCIP) curriculum to teach beginners basic technical skills (skating, puck handling, stopping, passing, turning and shooting) in an atmosphere that stresses fun, cooperation and fair play. FUNdamentals has a full-female staff of HCIP-qualified head coaches, other long-term, experienced coaches, and several hockey-playing volunteers. 

Girls participating in FUNdamentals wear full hockey equipment for two sessions each week.   The registration fee is $350.  

The 2017/18 FUNdamentals runs from September 23 to March 4 and takes place at the Ice House at Carleton University on:

Saturdays - 8:00 am to 8:50 am
Sundays - 3:30 pm to 4:20 pm

FUNdamentals does not run during Thanksgiving weekend, Christmas holidays, nor March Break.

“Learning the basic skills in practice at a young age is so important, because it allows the children to skate more, make more passes, take more shots on net and have the puck on their stick more than in any game.” -Paul Kariya, former NHL player and spokesperson for Hockey Canada’s Initiation Program.
