2018 Spring Hockey

The goal of the Herb Brooks National Hockey Center 2018 Spring Hockey program is to develop fundamental skills through gameplay. We believe that minimizing the playing surface and maximizing the playing time is the best way to keep players engaged while increasing the intensity level of competition.
 
Our Spring Hockey program will be played cross ice for all age levels. The program is 100% games orientated. Teams will be formed without tryouts. The program will not track stats, keep scores or use referees. This format provides an outlet for skaters to play the game without the traditional constraints of structured drills and practices.
 
Reducing the roster size allows us to maximize playing time through an appropriate play-to-rest ratio by age level. Skaters will improve core skating skills, agility, balance, coordination, quickness and an increased overall compete level. The cross ice hockey format will increase the number of shots on goal, passes, puck touches, body contact and puck possession battles. Less time and space increases the frequency of making hockey decisions and boosts hockey sense.
 
We are confident our spring program will provide a positive environment for improving skill development. More importantly, they will have FUN while gaining confidence to play at the next level.
