About Our Program - No Body Checking - Safe/Fun Hockey. All Hockey Canada Officials/Rules. Risk Management is our number one priority thereby providing a safe environment for your children.


BLOMHA offers a FUN and exciting House League Program for boys and girls ages 4-18. These programs are community run and operate on the principles of good sportsmanship, discipline, team work and the fair treatment of others under all circumstances and all conditions. In existence since 1951 BLOMHA has seen many of Burlington's youth graduate to enjoy healthy and happy lifestyles through the lessons they learned while with BLOMHA and many return to volunteer for the next generation of our youth. We also offer Power Skating clinics, Goalie clinics and other skill development programs at a very low cost to the participant as we are a Not For Profit Association.  Our development clinics are at least one hour in length and are held for eight weeks.

Our program consists of 12 Divisions:  AGE AS OF: DECEMBER 31ST OF THE CURRENT YEAR     

  • Initiation Program (4-5 year olds)
  • Initiation 6 (6 year olds)
  • Initiation 7 (7 year olds)  
  • Novice (8 year olds)
  • Minor Atom (9 year olds)
  • Atom (10 year olds)
  • Minor PeeWee (11 year olds)
  • PeeWee (12 year olds)
  • Minor Bantam (13 year olds)
  • Bantam (14 year olds)
  • Minor Midget (15 year olds)
  • Midget (16, 17, 18 year olds)

All divisions are "No Body Checking". Games in Pre-Novice to Midget consist of three (3) ten-minute stop time periods.


Recognizing that the position of goaltender is unique and that the interest in playing this position must be nurtured. BLOMHA's policy is that all players on teams from Initiation (6-7 year olds) through Novice be afforded the opportunity to play in net.To facilitate this policy BLOMHA supplies teams with goalie pads, body armour, gloves and stick from Initiation (6-7 year olds) through Novice. If a Minor Atom Team requires a set of equipment we will to accommodate if available. The success of this policy is evident in the growing number of goalies coming up through the older divisions. In Minor Atom through to Midget players must commit to this position when registering.


This is a program for 4 and 5 year old players that know how to skate and want to be introduced to the game of hockey.
Scores are not kept and player development is all about having fun.

This division is sponsored by Tim Hortons and our little Timbits players capture the hearts and smiles of all audiences. Times are Saturdays and one evening during the week 5-6pm (Monday-Friday). Two teams on the ice for practices and when teams start to play games (Saturdays) there will be four teams on cross ice or half-ice.

Initiation- 6-7 year olds - Per Hockey Canada 2017-2018 Hockey Canada developed the Initiation Program to make the first contact with hockey a safe and positive experience. It is a structured, learn-to-play hockey program designed to introduce beginners to the game's basic skills. It enables participants to become contributing members of a team effort, develop self-confidence, and experience a sense of personal achievement. These goals are achieved in an atmosphere of fun and fair play. Initiation Program is a progressive, learn-to-play teaching curriculum. Children learn through participating in practice drills and informal modified games.

  • The program consists of four phases of instruction, designed for any entry-level hockey player, which introduce the skills of skating, passing, puck control and shooting in a progressive, one-step-at-a-time manner. For practices there were will be two teams on the ice and for games there will be four teams on cross ice or half-ice.
