8U Travel Program Announcement

 

Dear Avon Hockey 8U (formerly Mite) Players and Parents:

 

This year, the Connecticut Hockey Conference was unable to obtain a waiver from USA Hockey allowing a limited number of full ice games.  Massachusetts and Connecticut were the last two states that were granted the extension the past two years.  As a result, all USA Hockey 8U games will be half ice for the entire season across the country.

 

Due to this change, I have made it one of my initiatives this season to explore opportunities to enhance and expand our 8U Travel and In House programs, providing more ice time to the benefit of our players, adding professional instruction for skill clinics and ensuring that the skill based, station practices continue to provide fun challenges in a positive learning environment.  This summer, I asked a select few board members, our new Coaching Director, 8U coaches and parents to meet to assist me with this initiative.  I am extremely pleased with the energy, the ideas and the progress that this group has made in a short time.

 

One of the decisions made by this group is that we need to provide more opportunities to more players for differing levels of a travel team experience.  We will continue to maintain an A team to challenge our strongest 8U players, a strong B team for those 8U players that are a year away from competing at the A level and one or more additional B teams (B Blue, B Green, etc.) for players that want to experience a more limited travel experience but still get the four hours a week instruction that travel hockey provides.  In my 14 years coaching at Avon Hockey, I notice that those players participating in four events per week progress rapidly and develop a sense of community and camaraderie that players and parents appreciate throughout their time at Avon Hockey and beyond.  Each team will have no more than 10 players.  Half ice 8U hockey is played 4 on 4 with a goalie, with a center ice barrier wall and intermediate size hockey nets.  All of our 8U Travel team coaches are dedicated and experienced coaches with a majority of them having played hockey at the collegiate level and have a few years developing their coaching skills with me in our Developmental and House programs.

 

We strongly encourage all Mite players that have played at the Mite In House level or on a Mite Travel team that are looking to take the next step in their hockey development to register for Mite Travel team tryouts and take advantage of the opportunities this enhanced program offers.  Please take a moment to talk with your son or daughter to discuss and consider participating in the Mite Travel program this season.

  

You can register by going to www.avonhockey.com and clicking on the REGISTER ONLINE tab on the left side of the Avon Hockey home page.  If you have any questions about this opportunity, please contact me at .  Or if you have any questions about the registration process, please contact Sage Nozko at  .

 

Enjoy the remaining few days of summer and I look forward to seeing you around the rink again soon.

 

Coach Scott
