Fall Camp Bring in high profile, highly skilled female coaches from OS Hockey to run fall camp for U10- U14 Association coaches would provide on ice support at fall camp. Use this for true development for ALL kids and not just the upper end players. High tempo camp truly preparing the kids for tryouts. Not yet approved but I will be pushing to get this approved. Hot Topics Cont. Coaches Advisory Committee I am planning to put together a Girls Coaches Advisory Committee. The intent of this committee will be but not limited to: Developing a curriculum for the girls hockey program. Mentoring new/inexperienced coaches May be part of the coaches interviewing panel Recommending training opportunities for the association coaches. Acting as a resource for other coaches in the girls program Recruiting\recommending new coaches Hot Topics Cont. Tryouts I am planning on changing tryouts a bit this year. Here’s how the U10 and U12 tryouts will be run (U14 may follow this as well depending on numbers) Tryouts Day 1 2-3 independent evaluators will pick the top 20 skaters The “A” head coach, Girls Director (w/ exception of U12) will also grade BUT the independent evaluators top 20 will be what we work off of unless there are major discrepancies. A team “locks” will be identified on day 1. Must have consensus by tryout graders. Top 2-3 goalies will be identified (numbers dependent) Hot Topics Cont. Tryouts Tryouts Day 2 Re-evaluate ALL players that are not locks for the A team. By the end of Day 2 the “A” Camp Team will be picked. Must be a minimum of 18 skaters but no more than 20 skaters. 2-3 Goalies will be selected for the A Camp Team Tryouts Day 3 “A” Camp Team will scrimmage against another association “A” team will be picked after the scrimmage Players that don’t make the respective “A” teams will be moved to the “B” pool. Hot Topics Cont. Tryouts “B” Pool Grading This year after the “A” teams are picked we will have a “B” grading session. The intent of this grading session will be to grade out the B players to ensure we are creating 2 equally skilled teams as possible. As always, this is dependent on the total number of kids we have in the program. If there are only enough for 1 B team, this grading session will not be needed. Hot Topics Cont. Team Format This year I will be limiting the numbers for the “A” teams at each level. Here’s the breakdown: (everything is dependent on total numbers) The “A” teams will be limited to 13 skaters and 1 or 2 goalies. Unless skaters 14 and 15 are true “A” players, this must be approved by the tryout committee. The plan at the “B” levels are to have leaner teams. Plan as of today is to have 2 “B” teams per level consisting of 11 skaters and a goalie for a total of 12 players. (everything is dependent on total numbers) Hot Topics Cont. Other items?
