The Under-7 Faceoff Festival is a grassroots initiative that sees a collaborative hosting effort by Hockey Manitoba, its Regions, and Minor Hockey Associations.
The objectives of this initiative are to create a fun, exciting event for players through the promotion and benefits of cross-ice hockey, skill development and age appropriate training while supporting coaches through a sustainable Under-7 Coach Mentorship program throughout the branch.
Join Hockey Manitoba in welcoming Under-7 (U7) players across the province to hockey in a fun-filled one day event across the province!
Details regarding the 2022 – 2023 Hockey Manitoba Under-7 Face-off Festival will be announced soon!
Hockey Manitoba will also use the event to connect coaches with regional mentors, training, and inform parents about U7/U9 hockey.
Minor Hockey Associations
Hockey teams across the province will come together to get on the ice and enjoy playing hockey in a safe and welcoming environment.
Minor Hockey Associations should schedule practices for all U7 teams throughout the day and can create a fun event atmosphere by including fun events and/or attractions.
Hockey Manitoba Online Events
