Atom Prep Phase
Following guidelines by Hockey Canada the GLHA and the London Junior Knights are pleased to announce the first phase of the Atom player pathway beginning this season 2021 -2022.  The first phase (Prep phase) is a non mandatory 4 session warm up prior to official evaluations at tryouts.

 Who can attend? Any minor atom / atom player that is eligible for either the LJK or GLHA program. 

The prep phase is geared towards players that have not been on the ice on a regular basis and allows them to warm up prior to official tryouts.

  1. Do I have to go ?

    Players have the option of attending or not, this is not an official tryout and no evaluations will be taking place during these skates by any atom age coaches within the LJK or GLHA program. Regardless of whether you attend the Prep phase or not, you will still have to register with LJK or GLHA for the 2021-2022 Season Tryouts as normal. If not attending the prep phase players will need to register with either the LJK / GLHA for tryouts as usual.


    Who will run these sessions ?

    They will be staffed by independent instructors  and  current coaches  from the LJK/GLHA  ( no coach from the atom age group will be involved ).  They will be running basic skills/skating  drills that are age specific to the atom age group.  


    Numbers ?

    We will be evaluating the numbers based on ice availability and maybe subject to change with any restrictions relating to Covid.  We are planning to accommodate all interested players but may restrict goalies up to a max of 16.


    Registration ? 

    This can be done through this link or the one provided on the LJK or GLHA websites. 


    Cost ?

    The 4 session 4 hour program will be on a revenue neutral basis for both associations and the fee per player will be $55.

    Registration for the Hockey Canada Player Pathway - ATOM PREP Phase WILL CLOSE ON AUGUST 21 at 11:59pm.
