“EXCELLENCE TAKES TIME”
This is the first guiding principle listed by USA Hockey in its effort to promote “developmentally-appropriate athlete development, health and safety, and sustained physical activity.”
YIHC has a long history of building top tier AA teams and players. While most of these athletes were talented, to begin with, they bought into our development culture and utilized the training provided to them by our paid staff.
Self-evaluation and feedback from our members have helped us revamp our practice layout and extend the practice season to ensure we are focusing on development across all levels and age groups.
This diagram represents the planned practice layout for the 2020-2021 season. Our focus is to expose all athletes to our paid staff during each practice session. These sessions will contain structured, age-specific training approved by our hockey operations staff.
A team’s primary week will consist of two 1.5-hour practice sessions, and possibly a 1-hour power skate session. The primary weeks rotate every three practices, and power skating will be every other week. This means teams will see between two and four hours of practice ice depending on the week.
Practice sessions will be broken down into 30-minutes team-specific training, 30-minutes positional & stick skills, and 30-minute, concept-based small area games if it is your primary week.
Mite practices will be held opposite these nights to allow our Hockey Director, Matt Doyle, access to this age group. They will consist of two 1-hour sessions per week with an additional half-hour every other week for power/technical skating instruction. Both travel and in-house Mites will be included in these sessions when their respective seasons begin. This will allow our staff to run high paced, ADM-style practices.
Shane Clifford will be returning to run his goalie clinics for YIHC this season. These will be held one week per month. We will also continue to provide instruction during practices through our partnership with the Skipjacks.
We will be kicking off our season with a minicamp in the first week of August. This camp will consist of our players 10U & Older again. Based on feedback from last season we will also provide a second minicamp to kickoff the start of our Mite season that will include all players 8U & Older.
The last change we have made is extending the practice season out to 31 weeks for our 10U & Older players and 28 weeks for our 8U players. This will keep our athletes in shape for playoffs, tryouts, and hopefully their Spring sport.
Lastly, I would like to thank all our parents for providing their feedback to us this past season. We could not be more excited about the changes we have made, and we believe they have addressed your concerns.
