Who? Youth players from Blue Blades to Bantams (PreK-14)

What? A youth program designed to provide participants of all levels with an opportunity to gain skills in a relaxed and friendly environment using a low player-to-coach ratio.  Players are separated based on factors, such as age and skill level, and are rotated through "stations" to work on various drills.  Beginner players will learn to skate by coaches using a variety of techniques, and will be incorporated into the station drills once coaches feel they are ready.  Intermediate and advanced players will work on station drills, and half-ice scrimmages will be facilitated, at the coaches’ discretion, to keep the competitive spirit alive.

Where?  Gutterson Field House, 97 Spear Street, Burlington, VT 05405
