National Skills Standards & Testing program

National Skills Standards & Testing Program

Hockey Canada created the National Skills Standards & Testing Program with the goal of measuring and providing individual feedback throughout the season. The program ensures that skill development is fun, challenging and accessible to all players.

Hockey Canada believes in celebrating skill achievement. Coaches should be encouraged to foster the development of the fundamental skills of hockey by measuring and providing positive individual feedback on skill development. It is essential that associations and parents have a method of measuring success beyond wins and losses.

Your feedback is important and will assist Hockey Canada in continuing to develop the program. Please email us with your thoughts
