Atoms is the first age division for boys and girls to play ice hockey and offers an introduction to the sport in a non-checking environment. Players can be aged between 5yrs to 11yrs (from 31st December that year) and play in a mixed in-house competition.
This year the Head Coach is Mike Sargeant and the League Coordinator is TBA. Training is on Tuesday evenings from 5pm and games are on Sundays from 3:45pm. Please refer to the schedule for more information on exact times.
Atoms can participate in the McCrae Williamson Jamboree over the June long weekend. This is an IHA development, training and skill based coaching jamboree designed to bring players from all over the country together to develop their skills in a fun way with coaches from national to club level. This is a fantastic event IHACT has been sending players to for many years with many friendships forged that will no doubt continue over many years of hockey.
Additional Atom only tournaments are held through the year by other clubs that local players may participate in as part of the Canberra Phoenix Team.
Playing up an age division
On occasion a player may be invited by an IHACT coach to play up one age division only for local leagues or travel tournaments. For Atoms, the next age division is Peewee. Players who are invited to play up must complete a IHACT Playing Up form and continue to participate in their current age division for the remainder of the season. There is a cost for a player to play up in a second age division.
The IHACT Playing Up form can be downloaded here.
