This past Saturday, the Kiwanis Female Midget A Falcons held a hockey clinic and dryland for the younger teams in the Timmins & District Girls Hockey Association. Players in the Timbit, Novice, Atom and Pee Wee programs spent time on ice and off, with Falcons players and coaching staff having fun and learning from the older players.

The Midget girls planned each session, on and off the ice, and ran the drills, while head coach Lindsay Leonard supervised. It’s one way the Kiwanis Midget A Falcons give back to the community and in particular the TDGHA. The Falcon players and coaching staff goal for the hockey clinics is to inspire the younger players of the Timmins & District Girls Hockey Association as to the benefits of physical activity, camaraderie and lasting friendships​, ​while continuing to play hockey as they grow older. 

The Midget A Program is designed to offer female players from Timmins, Hearst, Kapuskasing, Cochrane and Williams Lake – BC , from 15, 16 & 17 years of age the highest level of competition and instruction in Northern Ontario.
