Hockey Canada worked closely with the IIHF to develop the international skills challenge which is based on five individual tests and three goaltender tests taken from Hockey Canada’s National Skills Standards and Testing Program (NSST). The tests are designed to measure skill level in a fun and easy fashion in which Minor Hockey Associations can host their own individual skills challenges.

To view the NSST test stations visit: www.hockeycanada.ca/7/8/0/3/index1.shtml . The Canadian Skills Challenge was open to all Hockey Canada registered minor hockey players, male and female, 13 years old or younger as of December 31, 2007 (Pee Wee age).
