U8 Beginner Spring Developmental Program - $320

Our U8 Beginner Program will be a skill-focused program starting with the very foundations of the sport...Skating. It is also very important at this level to instill the love of this very game so that these little guys want to keep coming back....Besides, who said skill-development can't be fun? Do not miss your chance to sign up with the premier U8 developmental program in the state!

Featuring expert coaches Kyle Hull, Jason Gour, Bradley Stieduhar, Harry Golden and more! 


U8 Int/Adv Spring Developmental Program - $320

Our U8 Intermediate/Advanced Program is suited for players who have developed the foundation and looking for more. This program offers a heavy emphasis on skating and introducing key concepts and fine skills through small area games. Each skater will get two practices per week. The first practice each week will be nothing but skill-development while the second practice will be small area games. 

Your player is sure to love the developmental approach from coaches Kyle Hull, Brian TenEyck, Jason Gour, Harry Golden, Bradley Stieduhar and more! 


Squirt Spring Developmental Program

Our Squirt Program is a very important time for first-year skaters to learn all aspects of full-ice hockey. It is also very important for second-year skaters to use and apply what they learned from the previous season which will help assemble confidence. Our developmental approach for full-ice Squirt hockey is unmatched. From rules & concepts to positioning and most importantly skill-development, players are sure to become better, well-rounded hockey players.

NEW For 2020 

We are extremely excited to announce a brand new aspect of our Spring Program. We have carefully thought out and formulated a Track 1 as well as a Track 2 option.

Track 1 will have a tryout fee of $30.

Track 1 - $450 (does not include travel/tournament fees) - This option will be ideal for players who are looking for more of a competitive commitment. Skaters can expect to practice on average three times per week along with one off-ice training session once per week. Players who register for the Track 1 option will have the opportunity to try out for the Track 1 team. There will be one Track 1 team per level. Teams can expect one out-of-state tournament and one local tournament along with local scrimmages. Players who do not make the team, will be moved to Track 2. 

Track 2 - $320 (does not include local tournament fees) - Our Track 2 option has a more flexible & lighter schedule. This is ideal for players looking for more of a traditional Spring Program while busy with other sports. We are looking to have one or two Track 2 teams per level. They can expect two ice touches per week with local scrimmages and one local tournament. 

***Costs will vary between options. 

 

The Squirt Spring Program will be led by Kyle Hull and other LHA coaches. 


Peewee Spring Developmental Program

Our Peewee Program, much like our Squirt Program, is a very important stage in learning and developing as a hockey player. Players in the Squirt/Peewee range are sponges and there is no better time to focus on crucial skill-development and generate the best player possible. Whether it's from powerskating, puck protection, winning battles, increasing speed or instilling hockey awareness through small area games, we have your players covered with everything they will need to play at high levels.

Bantam Spring Developmental Program

Our Bantam Program will focus on introducing and improving body contact. As the game is rapidly changing, there is a huge difference between body-checking and body-contact. Players will learn the importance of separating the opposing player from the puck as well as correcting positioning prior to receiving body contact. Along with all of our other programs, skill-development is still a high priority on our list.
