Players at this age are by now used to playing full ice hockey, they understand game rules and positions, and their fundamental skills are developed. We build up on that, focus more on the details of the techniques of the skills - lateral skating, power skating, fakes and dekes with the puck, shooting, to name a few. Players are also more challenged on an individual basis during the games, every player has a specific role on the team and everything that comes with it - responsibilities for the outcome of the game, healthy pressure to hold their own and often more, learning from winning a game as well as from losing one. This all is conducted in a positive and healthy learning environment.
Tryouts are required in order to join our Peewee teams.
