The Comets Junior House League (previously known as Advanced Learn To Play) program will continue your Skater’s Hockey Journey by using the skills learned in the previous year to prepare for Travel Hockey.
We will introduce your skaters to recreational hockey games while continuing to develop their fundamental hockey skills. The program also exposes the skaters to the position of goalie with plenty of opportunity for every player spend some time in net. (Goalie equipment is provided).
Each weekend will include a practice/skills session on Saturday and a Team Game on Sunday. Practices typically include four or more stations developed from USA Hockey, age-appropriate drills. More stations (dependent on coach availability – see below for info) helps limit group sizes and increases time spent skating.
For Sunday games, the ice is sectioned off down the center line to allow for two separate games. These small ice games help to maximize puck contact, stimulate quick thinking, and foster teamwork.
Junior House League participants must be at least 5 years old at the session commencement date and no more than 7 years of age and must be able to work on his/her own in a large group setting.
