Apply to Host a Grassroots Festival - 2019-20 Season

August 27, 2019



The NOHA is currently looking for Minor Hockey Associations  interested in hosting a Grassroots Festival in the 2019-20 season.

Grassroots Festivals are one-day events aimed at the Initiation/Novice age groups, but can be open to Atom/Peewee players as well. Participating players will take part in two on-ice and two off-ice sessions focusing on teamwork, skill development, and fun, and receive a free lunch and gift from the NOHA.

Coaches will have the opportunity to attend a Hockey Canada Instructional Stream Clinic, and Officials will be able to attend a Development Seminar.

Grassroots Festivals are run at no cost to the Association, but require assistance in ice time, volunteers, and space for off-ice activities.

Below is an outline and agenda of a sample festival, though this is customizable per location.

If your Association is interested in hosting a Grassroots festival, please fill out the survey HERE.

If you have any questions, please call Andrew Corradini at 705-474-8851 or email
