Spring Skill Sessions

We are continuing our advanced skill sessions into spring. These sessions will be more specifically tailored to the age group and the developmental needs. Each of these 8 age specific sessions will work on skills to help continue to model our players into well rounded athletes on the ice. We  are  encouraging any player looking to tryout for both Spring Tournament Teams and Fall Birth year Travel teams to participate in the skills sessions. 

Each session will hold a limited number of player slots to maximize instruction time on the ice and will cost $15 per session. 

The Registration "Spring 2020" is not currently available.
