The LSMHA Development Committee and the Minor Hockey Board are pleased to announce that for the 2015/16 hockey season try-outs we will be offering body checking clinics for ALL Bantam & Midget aged players. This will be incorporated into the try-out process and an additional ice time will be provided to both those age groups so that coaches will have ample time to make those tough decisions when picking their teams.
Even though there is no body contact in the Local League divisions we feel that it is still very important to offer this clinic to all Bantam & Midget aged players in case a player is offered an Affiliated Player card (AP) or in the event during a Local League game that player will then know how to protect themselves. In no way are we promoting the fact that our Local League players should be using Body Contact it is more directed at how to protect themselves from aggressive players. By learning proper body position on the ice it will certainly help protect all of our players in LSMHA at the Bantam & Midget level.
We are pleased to announce that Total Package Hockey (TPH) will be running these Body Checking Clinics for the 2015/16 hockey season try-outs. TPH has also been hired to conduct player skills clinics throughout the entire hockey season.....More details to come in the near future.
Total Package Hockey (TPH) is a professional hockey development group that works with hockey players of all ages, skill level and ability. From first time skaters to NHL players TPH offers programs that suit all players’ needs. TPH has established itself as an elite outfit with professional staff, innovative curriculum and modernized teaching techniques to assist players in their development in their pursuit of achieving their goals in hockey.
By attending these clinics it shows that there is a strong interest in player safety and player development and it also allows us to continue to offer these additional programs to all of our players in LSMHA.
Please refer to the try-out schedule for dates and times.
Thanks in advance for your support.
