So, mark your calendars and watch your email, IYHA.com, and our Facebook, Twitter, & Instagram pages for more details in the coming weeks.
U14/U16/U18 Supplemental Skills Training with Coach Rocky Trottier
New for the upcoming season, the IYHA is offering a skill development program for our high school and incoming high school aged players.
In place of the U18 house league that we have run in recent years, Rocky Trottier will run 75 minutes each Tuesday night from 9:15-10:30pm at the Carmel Ice Skadium open to players born between 2000 and 2005.
Coach Rocky will spend significant time each week focusing on skating and puck skills. In order to learn to apply these skills to game situations, players will be placed in groups of similar size and skill for all competition and battle drills. This program will be skill oriented with very little, but controlled body contact to ensure the safety of all players.
These weekly skates from October through February are designed to be a supplement for current U14 house players, high school aged players without a team to play on and JV/practice squad players looking to improve their skills. Players from all school districts and organizations are welcome. This will not be a rostered team and therefore will not affect eligibility to play high school or select hockey.
Cost is $495.
