DEVELOMENTAL HOCKEY  - MISSION STATEMENT

To teach the fundamentals of hockey and to develop beginner level hockey players by implementing creativity in both scrimmages (Shinny) and structured practices.  Shinny scrimmages are played 3 on 3, 4 on 4, or 5 on 5 in a cross ice format.  This format will enhance the skill development of our players through increased touches of the puck and foster creativity.  

The program will concentrate on the following areas:

  • Having FUN
  • Building Self- Esteem
  • Teamwork
  • Good Sportsmanship
  • Skating
  • Shooting
  • Passing
  • Increase touches of the puck

EQUIPMENT REQUIREMENTS

  • Helmet with mask
  • Mouthpiece
  • Neck Guard
  • Hockey stick
  • Hockey gloves
  • Elbow & Shoulder pads
  • Shin pads
  • Hockey pants

 

 

The Developmental hockey program will focus less on the outcome of the game and more on player development in preparation for travel hockey.

The team selection process will focus on parity to ensure players are challenged at their skill level.
