For the sixth straight season, Hockey Nova Scotia is gearing up for the start of the Black Youth Ice Hockey Initiative!

The Black Youth Ice Hockey Initiative is a Hockey Nova Scotia program in partnership with the Black Ice Hockey and Sports Hall of Fame Society. The objective of the program is to provide boys and girls of African Canadian backgrounds the chance to experience ice hockey in a safe and fun on-ice environment.

This year, the program will consist of 18 on-ice weekly sessions that will be coordinated by fully certified Hockey Nova Scotia instructors along with community coaches. The program will run from 1:45-2:45 on Saturday afternoons at the BMO Centre in Bedford. The first session will take place on October 25 and the program will wrap up on March 21. As you can see from the video below, with a little bit of coaching and some quality ice time, these young players pick up the game pretty quickly.

The program is open to players between 4-8 years old on a first come, first serve basis. The first 30 players who submit their completed applications to Hockey Nova Scotia will be accepted.

For an application, please click here. These applications can be emailed to Brad Taylor or mailed to the Hockey Nova Scotia office:

Hockey Nova Scotia
7 Mellor Avenue, Unit 17
Dartmouth, NS

There is no cost for first-time program participants. Players are expected to provide their own equipment. If you require assistance in acquiring your gear, please contact Brad Taylor at the Hockey Nova Scotia office.

Players returning to the program will be expected to pay a $100 registration fee.

Hockey Nova Scotia isn't just looking for players for the program. We are also looking for coaches and volunteers. If you would like to be a part of the Black Youth Ice Hockey Initiative, please contact Brad Taylor or Darren Cossar.

Feel free to send it along to anyone you think might be interested in being a part of this great program!
