The Skills Sessions
- The sessions will be run by Justin Nelson (Nelly's Powerskating) and/or Rob Messner. During these sessions Coach Nelly and/or Coach Rob and their staff will identify skills gaps, then work to develop and hone those skills so that players can master and execute them in a game situation.
The Practice Sessions
- The sessions will be run by the team coaches. They will be high tempo and will focus on “Training-to-game transfers,” the ability to develop technical and tactical individual skills progressions and apply them directly into game situations.
3 on 3
- The AA teams will focus on “read & react”, touches, repetition, anticipation and battles while playing small area 3 on 3 games.
The League Play
- It is important for developing youth hockey players to receive a progress assessment. League play in the North Shore Youth Hockey League (NSYHL) provides that opportunity. Teams will be placed in one of four different levels to best match and challenge each player.
- The tournament gives us the opportunity to assess the players’ development in a condensed and more competitive format.
- All AA teams: 5/4-5/6 - Chicago Shootout (formerly NAPS-Midwest)
- All AA, A1, A2 and B: 5/15-5/20 - Glacier Invitational
