The Spring Development Program is open to players of all ages and from any regular-season hockey association. The 2017 program will include teams at the 2001 through 2009 birth years, which includes U8 teams. There will be a Major team and a Minor team at every level, dependent on tryouts.
Each team will have a roster of 14-17 players with the potential to add up to five additional practice players. Players not selected for U10 and U12 Major or Minor teams will have the opportunity to participate in skill sessions throughout the spring. U8 teams will not have a maximum number of players.
