PLAYER DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM (last updated October 20, 2022)
SMMHA is launching a Player Development program to provide members registered in our association the opportunity to participate in ice sessions designed to advance their individual skill development.
The sessions will be run by a mix of instructors including:
- Melisa Becker (MB Power Skating) - NCCP Skating Coach
- Total Package Hockey (TPH) - https://www.totalpackagehockey.ca/
- and local coaches.
Development ice will typically be scheduled 2-3 times per month on Saturday evenings from 5:45-7:15 pm. The schedule for these ice times can be found on the SMMHA website under the Player Development Team calendar: https://smmha.ca/Teams/1933/Calendar/ Note: this schedule will be modified as ice time availability changes throughout the season.
Each ice time will be offered to a specific age category and is open to any registered SMMHA player. The Ice time will be split into 2-40 minute sessions allowing approximately 20 participants per session. Signup for each ice-time will be done through a signup portal that can be found on the Player Development page on the SMMHA website. The signup portal will open at 7:00pm on the Monday before each session and will close on the Wednesday before each session at 11:59pm.
