dc.description.abstract The Canadian Junior "A" Hockey League includes ten leagues that span across Canada. Junior hockey players face challenges during the developmental years that can have far-reaching implications. Most of these teams do not have access to sport psychologists, or high school, college or university counselors. There is a need for junior "A" hockey players to have access to positive and informed psychological services to enhance performance and their overall wellbeing. Currently there is no comprehensive sport psychology program in place for developing young athletes in hockey or any other sport that we know of. In this article, a brief literature review is provided with regard to sport psychology and sport counselling. Recommendations for increasing sport psychological services—for enhancing performance as well as overall wellbeing for individual athletes, teams, and the league—within junior "A" hockey, and the evaluation of services are also discussed. en
