BOD Meeting Tonight

Good Morning Families!

Just a reminder that we have our Board Meeting tonight. We are actively looking for new members to join the Board as we begin planning for try-outs and the upcoming 2020-2021 Season. 

We are looking to our younger player parents to come down to the meeting and learn more about participating on the Board. With most of our current members being of older players - we need to turn to the parents in our younger programs to take over the open seats.

Interested? Please stop by the meeting tonight to learn more. We will communicate the open seats in the coming weeks - but we are anticipating having 5-7 open roles for the upcoming Season.

Hope to see you tonight!

All Skaters/players must be registered with USA Hockey, the cost is $48.00 per player (see website for updated costs), this is not refundable, please Click Here for registration information.

Projected Ice Time:  Twice a week (with some exceptions, please stay current with Schedule on Website)

Saturday 7:00am to 7:50am (subject to change prior to the start of the season)
Sunday 1:30pm to 2:30pm (subject to change prior to the start of the season)
exceptions include additional cross ice local games and tournaments

Location: Ristuccia Arena, 190 Main Street, Wilmington, MA 01887

This program is an in-house, fun introduction to the game of hockey with an emphasis on skills: stops & starts, edgework, and puck handling.  There are typically two practices a week and as the season progresses, Saturday is dedicated to skill building and Sunday is dedicated to cross ice 3v3 scrimmaging.  Other potential opportunities during the season, depending on timing and availability, include local tournaments and half ice scrimmaging with neighboring programs.  Possible call-ups to mite travel team when players are needed based on coach recommendations.

Goals of this level:

Develop skating and puck control skills of the individual player
Introduce basic shooting and passing skills
Introduce goalie position
Introduce basic game play

Throughout the year, players will participate in a goalie rotation with WYH providing the equipment for the players to try the goalie position. During the cross ice scrimmages, all emphasis is put on going after the puck and not positional play.  During half ice or full ice scrimmages more emphasis will be put on positional play. The primary goal is to develop a solid foundation of skating and puck handling skills to build on in the upper levels of Wilmington Youth Hockey.  

Participants should have skating experience
Ideally have completed a Learn to Skate and Learn to Play Program
Skaters are required to bring their own equipment:
Skates, Helmet, Stick, Elbow Pads, Shoulder Pads, Neck guard, Knee/Shin Pads, Pants, Socks, and Shirt
