Session 1 (Monday nights) will be based primarily on Power Skating introducing basic skating skills during Month 1 and gradually increasing difficulty from month 1 to month 4.  The power skating portion will Incorporate a variety of overspeed and resistance equipment such as skating belts,straps and bungee cords to aid in the development process. 

Session 2 (Tuesday nights) will incorporate the remaining technical skills such as shooting, passing, stickhandling, and checking into a balanced program designed to take a basic understanding of these skills in month 1 and evolve into more advanced techniques later in the program.

ATTN: PLAYERS-COACHES-PARENTS: HECC HELMET RULE CHANGE!

    Some new changes have been made by USA Hockey regaarding helmets and helmet certification. ALL helmets used on the ice during USAH sanctioned events must be in good working order and  HECC certified. Each certified helmet must also have a current certification sticker affixed in plain view to the back of the helmet. Each sticker will have and expiration date on them. Helmets with expired stickers will not be allowed on the ice. This includes all USA Hockey members--player helmets, referee helmets, and goalie helmets as well. Please check your equipment prior to the season starting to make sure you are in compliance with the new change. Below is an excerpt from the new rules and regulations book and photos of the HECC stickers that should be located on each helmet.

 

  "... (c) It is mandatory that all players (except Adults) wear a HECC approved helmet (including ear protection) with chin strap properly fastened.

       *(Note) HECC certification includes an expiration date on the sticker and a helmet that has an expiration date that hasexpired is no longer considered certified. The player may notwear a helmet that does not have a valid and current certification sticker. Players in the Adult classification must wear a hockey helmet (including non-HECC approved) with chin strapproperly fastened. "
