Atom Transitional Plan
Novice Lutz teams play all of their games at UHC, KMHA is fortunate to have a smaller size ice surface allowing all Novice Lutz players to get used to playing on a rink where the face off circles and lines are all in their normal place on the ice. This helps prepare the players for their move into Atom the following season. KMHA plans to have referees on the ice in February to further help with learning the rules of the game, as well as give our young referees some valuable experience.
