The first half of each ice session is devoted to drills that emphasize forward and backward skating, stick handling, passing, shooting and small-area games. The second half of each session consists of a full-ice scrimmage, coordinated by on- and off-ice coaches, in which players learn positioning, teamwork and offensive and defensive concepts.

Sundays, April 8 – June 3; 6 and 7:15 pm start times (eight weeks)
Bantam and high school players can prolong their season with weekly games every Sunday evening. There is no checking allowed in the spring program, which allows younger players to improve their skills against more experienced players. Bench coaches are volunteers who will keep the focus on fun.
