2014-2015 High School Hockey
GHRA recently announced some initial dates for the 2014-2015 High School Hockey Season and all indications are the schedule will be very similar to last season with the pre-season tournament being held the weekend of September 13th & 14th at SGAA and games beginning in early October.
Three practices are currently on the calendar to prepare for the upcoming season. These practices are optional, but highly encouraged for all players (new and returning). The first 30 minutes of each session will focus on individual skills/drills and/or one on one coaching for those players who want some extra assistance with a particular aspect of their game. The remainder of the practice will be an open scrimmage to dust off the summer rust and get back in game mode. They are scheduled for the following Thursdays in August:
:00pm- 8:30pm; Thursday, Aug 7th
7:00pm- 8:30pm; Thursday, Aug 14th
7:00pm- 8:30pm; Thursday, Aug 28th
Tryouts for the 2014-2015 3A/4A High School Team are Thursday, Sep 4th from 7:30pm - 8:30pm. All players interested in trying out are invited. If you desire to play and can't make it or have any questions get in touch with Coach Greg (404-402-6881; firstname.lastname@example.org).
