    Weekly Dryland and Additional NO COST Practice Options are under way!

    Posted: 10/10/21  |  Updated 10/24/21

    USA Hockey has created fun, age-appropriate Dryland (off-ice) exercises that help deliver the agility, balance, coordination, strength and skill training that young players need to complement their on-ice play.

    We have started the weekly Dryland! (BEFORE on-ice practices the same evening)

    This will be led by Coaches Brian & Leah Dolan at the following times:

               - Squirts (10U) | Tuesdays @ 6:15pm
               - Peewees (12U) | Tuesdays @ 6:45pm
               - Bantam (14U) & Jr. Varsity (JV) | Wednesdays @ 6:00pm

    • Please have your Squirt, Peewee, or Bantam/JV player arrive on-time in comfortable exercise clothes and athletic shoes to participate! 
    • Meet at the lockers near the first rink door

    We have worked to allow enough time for Dryland and for the players to then get changed for on-ice practice immediately after.


    We have also added additional on-ice practice time at NO COST specifically for SKATING and GOALIES as follows:

              - Skating | Tuesdays @ 6:00pm-7:00pm (during Mini/Mite practice, led by Coach Susan Kugelmann)

    • BOTH parents and/or coaches can request their player participate in the Skating Practice
    • Please let your player's Head Coach know if you are interested! We can get them rostered for this for reminders, etc., but this is NOT REQUIRED)
    • Generally split into two levels:
      • 6-6:30pm - INTERMEDIATE (have the basics, need some 'tuning')
      • 6:30-7pm - BEGINNER (new to skating & still working on the basics)

              - Goalies | Thursdays @ 6:00pm-7:00pm (during Mini/Mite practice, led by Coach Scot Morin)

    • ALL current goalies will be rostered for this practice (reminders, etc.) - the ask is they do attend if at all possible!
    • Any players interested in playing goalie need to let their Head Coach know & arrange for equipment sizing prior to being rostered for this practice

    Again, there is NO ADDITIONAL COST for any of these practices!

    These practices are planned to take place at the end of the ice by the Zamboni doors.
