Tyke Select Six – Advanced Players
AGE: 5-6 Years Old on December 31st
There will be a select six tryout held at the beginning of the season. Times are listed in the eval schedule above. 
Note that Select 6 requires extra payment in addition to the Tyke Registration Cost. The cost is determined by the LPCHA based on the recommendation of your coach and will cover the ice costs for added games, practices and player development.
Tyke select Six is an additional program that runs alongside the LPCHA Tyke Program. Players who participate in Select Six also play in the Tyke House League program. Select Six is designed for advanced players to gain competitive hockey skills in a fun environment while getting an introduction to Rep Hockey. Select consists of an extra team game and practice each week. The games are scheduled by the MHL against other MHL Select Six teams. Practices will be set each week by the coaching staff of Select Six.
*Game and practice times TBD.
The Tyke Select Six kids will play on a Tyke House League Team as well as their Tyke Select Six Team and are expected to commit to both teams equally.

LPCHA Tyke Games and Practices
All LPHCA Tyke games and practices use full ice and black pucks. The Tyke HL teams will play with goalies for games selected from their team each week. Goalie equipment is provided by the LPHCA.

All Tyke players – with the exception of the Learn to Play participants - are evaluated at the beginning of the season. At the conclusion of the evaluation period, players will be convened into 10 - 12 tyke teams. Each team is comprised of 4, 5 and 6 year olds. Some players will be placed into Lego League teams and other players will be placed in Tyke HL teams depending on their skill level.

All Tyke teams are balanced and structured into a 12-13-player team with an A and B line. A line being the stronger skilled players and the B line being the lower skilled players. In game play, A lines play against each other, as do the B lines, maximizing each player’s ability to compete against those of similar skills. Players that surpass their B line abilities can be moved to the A Line.

For practices kids are divided into groups of similar skill. Then moved through drill stations in those groups. Full ice and multiple skill stations are used for practices to create variety when working on skating, shooting and puck control.

*As of January 2017 offside will be called for the House League A line.
*All Game and Practice times are subject to change slightly based on enrollment numbers however based on our estimations, practices will be held at Cawthra Arena 7am – 1pm and Games will be held at Clarkson Arena 7am-1pm
