Hockey Canada and the OMHA believe in celebrating skill achievement. In Canadian minor hockey, coaches should be encouraged to foster the development of the fundamental skills required to play the game at the minor levels by measuring and providing positive individual feedback on skill development. It is essential that minor hockey associations and parents have a method of measuring success beyond wins and losses
The National Skills Standards & Testing (NSST) is a series of six (6) individual skill tests for Players and three (3) for Goaltenders have been designed to measure the skill level of players. These tests can be administered by team coaches requiring very little equipment, expense and set up time.
