Friday Night Skills Clinic Hits the Ice for Year 2
Submitted By Dragan Paroski on Monday, October 13, 2014
Listowel Minor Hockey is moving to year 2 in the pilot project of dedicated ice time to allow Novice and Atom players to develop and practice the individual skills of puck handling, passing and shooting.

The goal of Listowel Minor Hockey is to not only have a substantial number of kids trying the game at an early age (see Grass Roots Sponsorship Program), but to ensure they develop the skills to enjoy the game during their LMH careers and beyond.

Richard Keeso has graciously volunteered to be the Lead Coordinator of these 12 sessions with Jason Brooks, LMH Director of Skills Development, Bob Johns and Kevin Konings in supporting roles. An impressive Staff of passionate Volunteers who have found a way to make the largest impact possible by engaging with upwards of 100 Young Players during this short time period.

Quoting Richard: "We feel basic skills need to be broken down into simple steps and then progressively put back together for players to understand the "why" in the technique. If we can find the right formula for teaching those skills it is hoped the players will enjoy practicing further on their own and under the guidance of their coaches."

These 50 minute sessions during the months of October, November and December, will be posted under the Friday Night Skills Tab on our homepage. There you will find practice session plans, interesting videos and other tools to give you the opportunity to complement the on-ice sessions by practicing at home. These sessions will allow players to learn at their own pace, become more comfortable with the puck and improve their level of confidence. When these fundamentals are ingrained at an early age, players have the ability to contribute more to their Team, therefore enjoy the game more as they move through these formative hockey years.

This is an excellent opportunity for Parents to engage with their child and show how effort ties into results. A life lesson which you can continually relate to other aspects in life: work, school, etc. Isn't that what hockey is all about....
