"These team's are purely developmental, we are offering as a place where kids have the ability to have a full-ice practice with only their team on the ice. Which obviously means that every skater will have more opportunity to develop their skating & stick-handling skills. But, we also want to really start to develop their feel for the game or "hockey sense." Things like where they need to be on the ice, how to really move with the puck to open other teammates up, move without the puck to where are open to get the puck back and be able to actually pass the puck when the opportunity presents itself. To develop their all-around game as a hockey player & person and be able to do it in an environment with great coaches and a truly developmental approach it.
It's a great opportunity for players who would like to play their association team as well as our AAU team. And for players (& parents) who would rather do our program as their only option (as we are planning to do with Kennedy) it’s a great fit for those families as well."
