Hockey Nova Scotia’s Structural Review Committee has unveiled its recommendations for the 2014-15 season that will be discussed at the Hockey NS Annual General Meeting next month.

The committee was struck by the President of Hockey Nova Scotia in August of 2012 and asked to review the levels of play of the minor and female hockey structure with a focus on safety, travel, cost, player development, recruitment and retention, as well as review female hockey in terms of registration, player placement and overall administration. These tasks were to be reviewed with a focus on Hockey Canada's Long Term Player Development Model (LTPDM).

Some of the key factors discussed were:

  • How do we reduce travel for rural areas and allow players to play locally?
  • Can we reduce the cost to parents, MHA’s through restructured programs?
  • How can we make the game safer and more attractive to new players and families?
  • How can we provide all players an opportunity to play at their skill set?
  • Are we meeting the minimum of the HC – LTPDM?
  • Can we simplify the player registration and placement of female players in the regional team format?

The committee's recommendations regarding structural changes can be found here while its recommendations for improving the playoff format can be found here.

These recommendations will be explored and discussed by the Hockey NS board, councils and minor hockey associations at the Hockey NS AGM in May.
