FAQ's

Timbits Division


Following is some great information pulled from the Hockey Calgary website on the Timbits Program.  For additional information please go to the Junior Timbits webpage on our website and click on the Hockey Calgary Timbits Program tab at the top of the page.

Timbits Program

Thanks to our sponsor Tim Hortons, Hockey Calgary is able to run the Timbits Program which is a developmental league for kids aged 5 and 6. With the sponsorship dollars received from Tim Hortons, Hockey Calgary is able to purchase jerseys, host the Timbits Jamboree, purchase pucks, provide each player with a Timbits Medal, supply water bottles to various tournaments, host educational sessions for coaches and operate a learn to play hockey program for first year Timbits players. 

The Timbits Program was implemented in 2001 as a pilot project with 3 associations. The program has continued to grow each season and there are currently 15 associations that take part in the program. The Timibits program is a mandated program in Calgary for the Initiation division for 5 and 6 year olds. The program focuses on skill development and the FUNdamentals of the game for the players, coaches and parents. On average there are over 100 teams that make up the Timbits Age Category in Zone 9- Hockey Calgary.  The Timbits Program and its rules and regulations are all outlined within the Timbits Manual and the Timbits Parent Power Point Presentation.

Timbits Coach Specialty Clinics

Hockey Calgary will be offering several coaching clinics for Timbits Coaches during the 2010-2011 Hockey Season.  Each of the clinics offered are 3 hrs in duration.  They each include 1.5hrs classroom and 1.5hrs on ice session.  The clinics are free to attend.  Please check the Hockey Calgary website for more information on these clinics.  If you are interested in coaching for a McKnight Timbits team, please go to our Coaches Corner page for coach application information.

Timbits Jamboree

Each year Hockey Calgary puts on a Timbits Jamboree. This event is a celebration of Timbits hockey and its attributes. The Timbits Jamboree is a family orientated day where families can enjoy the success of the season.  Each player who attends the Jamboree receives their Timbits Medal, honouring each player for a job well done as well as a gift from Tim Hortons. The Timbits Jamboree takes place in March.

Timbits Learn To Play Hockey Program.

Player, coach and parent development are at the forefront of Hockey Calgary's mandates relating to hockey development in Calgary. As a result, Hockey Calgary has developed a Timbits Learn to Play Hockey Program. The purpose of this program is to educate parents and coaches on the importance of skill development, while introducing first time players to the game of hockey. This new initiative is a partnership between Tim Horton's, Hockey Calgary and the 16 community associations within Calgary.

Thanks to Tim Horton's 320 first time hockey players and parents will have the opportunity to experience Hockey Calgary and its initiatives first hand. There is no cost to parents, participants and/or coaches to take part in this event. Thanks to Tim Hortons sponsorship with Hockey Calgary, we are fortunate to be able to host events such as the Timbits Learn to Play Hockey Program.
