Hockey Canada Age Division
Age ranges and names for levels of minor hockey
Find out when your child can begin playing minor hockey. Learn about age-appropriate development as players advance to successive age divisions.
Hockey Canada and its 13 members have ratified age division names changes for all levels of minor hockey. The changes create a simpler and more consistent reference for parents registering their children.
The changes came into effect 2020-21.
Only the names will change. Actual divisions remain consistent with past seasons. Areas with Major and Minor designations within divisions will continue to do so under the new naming format.
