Welcome back to Hockey, members! Medicine Hat Minor Hockey is excited with the prospect of playing hockey in a somewhat normal fashion this coming season. We are also excited to be offering development camps throughout July and August. Now that registration is open for the upcoming season, we are providing registration information for these camps as well!
Intro to Checking
MHMHA will again be offering a 4-session camp in August on an Introduction to Checking Skills for the U13 and U15 age groups. While camps of this nature introduce body contact (U15), checking is also about checking tactics involved in playing on the defensive side of the puck. These sessions will focus on the skills required for athletes to check and be checked safely and correctly. Skills that need to be developed to accomplish this, such as skating, balance, agility, stick checking, body position, etc, will be worked on over the 4 – 1.25hr sessions. There will be goalie instructors to work with goalies as well.
MHMHA will be offering ice sessions this August that are designed to get athletes back on the ice working hard to help prepare for the upcoming season. The sessions will focus on conditioning if through drills designed to incorporate various aspects of the competitive game. We will look to provide players with a pathway towards their good habits to be ready to compete in the upcoming season. Skating, agility, stops and starts, puck handling in tight areas, puck retrievals, puck battles and many other skills will be incorporated into drills to keep intensity high and maximize the ice sessions. These sessions will be available to the U11, U13, U15, and U18 age groups. There will be goalie instructors to work with them as well.
