This summer, we will be continuing with our 4th annual Summer Hockey Development Program. Like past years, we will have ice sessions at the Greenheck Fieldhouse and dryland training at our rink. We will be working on drills that will improve our skaters speed, quickness and agility. The techniques and dryland drills can also be done at home. We will also continue with our third annual puck shooting challenge.
We will have 3 dryland training sessions and 6 ice sessions this summer. Skaters need to sign-in so we can keep track of sessions. Ice sessions will be $10/skate to cover ice fees, please pay at the beginning of the session. Dryland will be free. Any skater who attends 7 out of 9 sessions will receive a cool T- Shirt for their efforts, compliments of the Hockey Development Committee.
Starting June 1st until October 1st, mite - aged skaters can complete the challenge by shooting 5000 pucks. Squirts through bantams can complete the challenge by shooting 10,000 pucks, don’t forget to include plenty of back hand shots too.
To get started, print the attached Puck Shooting Log to track progress. The completed form can be turned into me, Chad Ellis, when you are finished.
Any skater who shoots their number of pucks will awarded a prize. Also after tryouts every year, those who have completed the challenge, will compete for a grand prize in an end – of - summer shooting contest at our dryland area.
Like last year, we hope to hand out a lot T-Shirts and shooting prizes at the end of the summer. Have a great summer and we will see you at the rink!
