2.      Effective 2018-19 - Game play for the Tyke age-group (7 year-olds) will be Half-Ice. 
3.      Effective 2019-20 - Game play for the Novice age-group (8 year-olds) will be Half-Ice during the first half of the season and transition to Full-Ice during the second half of the season.

Starting the 2019/2020 season CDMHA will be adopting the Hockey Canada, OMHA policy for all Novice and Below players.
