New Names for Age Divisions
Submitted By Kevin Mehlenbacher on Tuesday, January 14, 2020
Hockey Canada and the Ontario Minor Hockey Association have announced new names for its age divisions which will take effect for the 2020-2021 season.

Following the recommendations of a task team, the age divisions will become U7, U9, U11 through to U21, impacting all minor hockey programs under the Hockey Canada umbrella. The change was initiated by Hockey Canada and its 13 provincial and territorial members and will be implemented nationally with their input and support for the 2020-21 season.
