Registration is open for the IYHA Jr Fuel Summer Clinic. New for 2019, we’ll be running out of both the Carmel Ice Skadium and the Fuel Tank!
The summer clinic will last seven weeks beginning July 8 running through August 22. This year’s program will push players to their limits with Olympic Skating coach Serguei Zaitsev and puckhandling specialist Derek Edwardson. Sixty minutes per week will be dedicated to individual skills focusing on edgework, power skating, balance, hand and wrist strength, puckhanding, deception and maneuvering with the puck at high speed.
The second night each week will be run by AAA coach and Director of Player Development Brent Gwidt alongside 18U AAA Coach and Director of Player Advancement Jimmy Mullin. Coaches Gwidt and Mullin will create game situations to teach players to apply their freshly learned skills with teammates against live opponents.
The clinic will be open to 10U (2009/2010), 12U (2007/2008) and 14U (2005/2006) aged players. Please note that the 14U session will run only out of Carmel due to other summer programming. 10U and 12U will have separate sessions out of Carmel and the Fuel Tank.
Carmel sessions will be on Monday and Wednesday nights and Fuel Tank sessions will be on Tuesday and Thursday nights. Specific times will be posted by Friday.
This is a great opportunity for players to stay on the ice during the second half of the summer and prepare for the 2019-2020 season. Cost for the summer clinic will be $399 and cannot be prorated. Each session is limited to 28 skaters. Game night drop-ins will be available for $25 per session. Goalies are welcome to attend game nights free of charge. Register now!
As the 2019-2020 hockey season approaches, the Jr Fuel 16U and 18U AAA teams have received more interest than ever from AAA level players across the country. On June 1st and 2nd we will be selecting our final rosters that will include several players moving to Indy to play for us.
We are looking for families to host players for the hockey season and be a second home for young men putting it all on the line to take their game to the next level. Families must provide a safe and positive home life. While hosting a player can be very rewarding and create lifelong bonds and friendships, it can be challenging for both the player and host family. We do our best to match families and players with compatible values and family background.
Families will be given strict guidelines and expectations including providing all meals for the player, transportation if the player does not have access to a car and his own bedroom with private closet space for the entire school year.
Players are expected to live by reasonable house rules and will be held to the highest standard of behavior.
Host families will receive a stipend each month (amount determined by the IYHA) directly from the player’s parents for food and groceries. Host families are not responsible for travel expenses or food when a player travels for games.
This is a great opportunity to help a player reach his hockey goals and serve as a role model for your young players. If you are interested please fill out the document linked below and submit it to Derek Edwardson firstname.lastname@example.org.
