Zach's Goal House Hockey Development Program

Program Overview:

Twin City Youth Hockey Association is forming a new House Hockey Development Program, for youth hockey players ages 5 to 9.

The program has been specifically designed to meet the needs of our age 9 and under hockey players looking to further develop their hockey skills to prepare for possibly playing full season travel hockey.

In addition this program is ideal for kids who may have dek/street hockey experience, and what to get into ice hockey. 

With the support from our partners at Zach's Goal, the House Hockey Development program will mix the USA ADM Model to develop players core hockey skills while allow them to play cross ice an half ice games during the seasons to focus on getting player as many touches of the puck as possible each ice session while allow them to have fun and learn the game at the same time!

It is ideal for graduates of the Learn to Skate/Hockey Development program or for those children with some skating experience who want to begin to learn to play hockey.  Children with limited skating experience may still be able to play.  Please contact TCYHA for more info.  The program focuses on skating (stopping, turning, skating backwards) and hockey (stick handling, passing, shooting) skills, along with team interaction and game play.

Ice Time: The program will begin on November 3rd and run through March 21st. All ice sessions will be held at the Wallace Civic Center in Fitchburg on Saturday's and Sunday's. The first half of the year the ice sessions will focus on mostly skill development with some games mixed in. Then after January 1st the Saturday ice sessions will be skill/practice sessions and Sunday's ice session will be games (either cross ice or half ice)

Players will be divided into teams and we will do our best to evenly match teams throughout the season as players develop through the program.

Ages: 5 to 9 boys and girls are welcome to participate

Schedule: Season Starts November 3rd and will wrap up March 21st. As part fo the program the last 3 ice sessions we will hold a jamboree style tournament for all the teams with a year end pizza party for all the players after the last day of games.

Cost: $595 per player (which includes a jersey and socks fro each player) 

Location: Wallace Civic Center

Equipment: Full hockey gear is required, including HECC approved helmet with face mask, knee pads, shoulder pads, elbow pads, hockey pants, a jock (or jill for girls), hockey skates, hockey gloves, and hockey stick.
