NOVEMBER THROUGH FEBRUARY
For the 2020-2021 season, we offer our House League again, 3v3 games designed for girls ages 5 - 15 looking to put newly learned skills to test in game situations. It is held on Saturdays starting November 1st and runs through the end of February.
According to Bill Greim, Learn to Play Clinic Director, "The 3v3 format puts hockey concepts over positional play. Skaters are forced to make plays under constant pressure with maximum puck touches. It's development in its purest form and will help quickly improve the most critical areas of the game. "
The House League 3v3 option is available as an add-on package for Sand Sharks and Juniors Sharks, who are looking for more development opportunities beyond the standard clinic offering. Additionally, select travel team players can take advantage of the extra ice time with their coach's approval.
How it works:
The House League offers a significant development opportunity for players relatively new to hockey who want to build core hockey skills quickly. The cross-ice, small area format improves all aspects of a player's game, including skating, stick handling, shooting, and, most importantly, reaction time.
The speed of the game and the amount of ice time make the House League fun for players of all ages!
USA Hockey sed analytics to show the value of cross-ice hockey versus full ice hockey. Using analytics, they show how small area games increase reaction times, provide more puck touches, and create more puck battles verses in context to full ice. Take a look:
