NSD's Mighty Mites program is a multi-level program, offering 3 - 6 year olds the opportunity to experience the sport of Hockey in a fun and exciting recreational environment.

SMALL AREA GAMES
Age Group/Level: Timbits & Pee Wee / Bantam

NSD prides itself on including the Small Area Games theory within its hockey development model, as it is deemed beneficial for all ages and skill levels. Players are forced to compete at higher-levels overall, helping to raise their individual skills, quickness, decision making and knowledge of the game. By working in small spaces, skill development improves that much faster provided players are given the opportunity to touch, carry and pass the puck that many more times than they would in an average practice or structured hockey game. It goes even further to teach players how to protect the puck and master the importance of stick handling and passing.

PROGRAM FOR EXCELLENCE
Age Group/Level: Pee Wee/Bantam

Looking to enhance your community/quadrant hockey experience? Program for Excellence (PFE) is a personal coaching early morning program designed to compliment players’ development with their respective community/quadrant team.  The PFE offers a low player to coach ratio, giving each player greater individual attention both on and off-the-ice. As a result, PFE is geared towards players that are truly committed to pursuing excellence in the sport of hockey and it has been designed as an alternative to school programs.
