A SPECIAL KIND OF HOCKEY FOR A SPECIAL KIND OF PLAYER
First time on the ice, not quite sure about all that gear, or just needing a little extra time, our Learn-To-Skate Hounds program helps player progress at their own pace in a safe and supported environment. This is the place many Hounds got their start at skating.
With skating skills down, this is where our younger and older Hounds truly begin to learn and understand the basics of the game. If you're looking for excitement, look no further than a Junior Hounds game at Galt Arena on a Saturday afternoon.
Ready to take the next big jump, our Intermediate Hounds play the game at a slightly faster pace than our Junior Hounds, but still take great pride in learning more about the best parts of the game... passing, shooting, and best of all making friends!
Special hockey seasoned pros, our Senior Hounds know the game and love every aspect of it. You can almost feel the excitement on the ice as you watch the smiles beam from the faces of our players.
Hockey is a pastime that many Canadians take for granted. It is generally accepted that, if you’re able to skate, there’s opportunity to play ‘Canada’s Game’. This reality is true to a point. Until, as a player, you start to discover that teams with other players of the same age, just don’t quite feel the same anymore and the enjoyment of a game you once loved begins to fade.
This is where the Cambridge Ice Hounds come in. We're a hockey program developed for players with special needs which prevent them from participating in traditional hockey programs.
Over the past 13 years, more than 100 children and adults with special needs in Waterloo Region have called themselves “Hounds”. Annually, more than 60 players take to the ice from September through April.
