Girl's Rule Spring Hockey Clinic

Register here

We are pleased to announce our Spring Skill-based Clinic for Girls in the U10 (’09 & ‘08), U12 (’07 & ’06), U14 (’05 & ’04) & U16 (’03 & ’02) level. Advanced U8 girls may also participate.

The curriculum for this program has been designed by our lead Girls coaches and Hockey Directors with the goal of providing high level skills instruction in all facets of the game to our Girls players.

Here are the program highlights:

  • Twice weekly sessions on Thursdays @ North Shore 6:50 or 8:00 and Sundays 5:05 or 6:15 @ Winnetka. These sessions will begin on April 5th after Public School spring break. The U10 and U12 group will skate together, and the U14 and U16 will skate together.
  • Thursday Skills sessions will be led by Head Skills Instructor Wayne Brown. The emphasis of the Thursday sessions will be to give all participants a solid foundation of dynamic skating and skills instruction. He will be assisted by Head Coach Bill Brush.
  •  The Sunday sessions will be a combination of station-based training and small area games.
  • Participation in the Dragon’s Lair Girls Tournament (Darien) May 18-20. We will form teams at the U10, U12, U14, and U16 levels.
  • At least two Skill sessions in March prior to spring vacation.
  • 18 hours of skills instruction
  • 2-3 games with other neighboring clubs within the U10, U12, U14, and U16 age groups.
  • Station-Based Training: Tons of repetition working on key-skills
    To maximize skills development, we will teach in small groups, broken down by age & skill level.  Each station highlights a critical hockey skill and allows for high repetition and 1 on 1 instruction. All are welcome, and all will benefit.
  • Small Area Games: Players will conclude each day with fun/competitive Small Games.  We select creative age and skill appropriate Small Games drills that simulate game situations.  Players benefit from increased 'puck possession' and time directly involved in game situations.  This format accelerates confidence and skills growth by exposing players to repetitive game situation battles and is the ideal conclusion to a great day of skills training.
  • If you want to improve your game, we'll make it happen...regardless of current skill level. Within each group, players are assigned to smaller groups (2-10 players) to further maximize their skills development. So whether you are a curious beginner or a serious player, you will always receive the best training for your skill level. We welcome all and promise to do our best to improve your daughter’s skills and more importantly, foster a love for this great game.
  • Comradery: Skate with and get to know other girl hockey players of all ages: we find this gets everyone excited to play!
  • Fee is $525 (Goalies $375 and may do weekly goalie clinics with Stu Gould)
