Please take a few minutes to check out our FAQ page. Many of the questions related to being new to hockey pertain to Timbits. For more information you may also refer to our Timbits Division page.
Following is some great information pulled from the Hockey Calgary website on the Timbits Program. For additional information please visit the Hockey Calgary 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.

The Timbits 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.

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.
