Canton FED Devo Program
The Canton FED Development Program is for novice hockey players and the last stage of our introductory programs before moving on to our official Mite Hockey teams. It is NOT a learn-to-play program...please see our Canton Learn to Play tab for further information on that. It is NOT a house development program...please see our Canton/Bavis Dog Development League tab for further information on that.
Players for our Fed Development Program will be selected as part of our annual March tryout process and be placed on one/two teams that will participate in the Fed Futures division as part of the Eastern Hockey Federation league. In the case of multiple teams, we will attempt to balance the them based upon age, ability as well as hometowns. Not everyone is guaranteed a spot within this program as it needs to be the right fit. For those skaters who aren't ready for this full season-full ice commitment, we recommend our Dog Development Program instead.
The 2022-2023 program runs from September - early March. Development teams will skate as a group three (3) days a week, twice during the week at 5:00pm and once on Saturday mornings at 10:00am. They will play full-ice games on Saturday and/or Sunday against other EHF Fed Future programs throughout the season. This combination of three skates a week complimented by a full season game schedule provides plenty of ice time to support the growth and development of the individual player at these pre-Mite age levels of 2016s and advanced 2017s.
**2015s may be accepted into the program but they are strongly encouraged to try out for our Mite Minor teams in both Canton and Bavis so they can continue playing with their birth year teams if possible.
If you are interested in this program please register in advance for tryouts. Since this is a full season commitment, no players will be able to be added once the season begins.
* Cost is $1,950 for the full season program.
* Two (2) numbered shirts and (1) socks provided.
* All hockey equipment is required.
If you are interested in volunteering to assist with the either the on-ice or game coaching of this program, please contact email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
