Fun Summer Activites to do with your team

Summer is a great time for players to focus on improving their individual skills.  Going to camps, clinics, working out in your driveway and even competing on tournament teams, can be great places for individual skill improvement.

For teams with a low turnover from the year before, and middle or high school teams, activites for team building can become memorable experiences.  Moreover, you can incorporate skill work as well as strength and conditioning.

Here is a list of activities my High School team is planning on doing-

Do things that are fun, different and incorporate everyone!

Here are other ideas to consider...
* Team Cookout/ BBQ
* Paintball/ Laser Tag
* Guest Speakers
* Day at an Elite Training Facility or Speed School
* Team Open Hockey or Stick & Puck
* Sleep Away Camps or Going to a Big- Name Clinic together

Scoring Concepts Summer Squirt & Pee Wee Training Teams

This summer I am putting together two teams, a Squirt (2003/2004) and Pee Wee (2002/2001) age group, composed of Central New Hampshire players to train for a month, and then go compete in a showcase tournament in Exeter, NH. Given that they take up the ice at the Laconia Ice Arena from April to August, the idea is provide an alternative to hanging up the equipment for this aged group of players in the Lakes Region of New Hampshire. Moreover, the team will get advanced training and coaching in a fun and competitive environment, so that they can prepare for their Fall & Winter Seasons.

Each participant gets:

* 4 weeks of on/off ice training sessions at Plymouth State Rink (4 consecutive Wednesdays)

* One 1 on 1 private skill training session on synthetic ice

* Team Jersey

* Participation in the Summer Showdown AA tournament in Exeter, NH
