Practices: The XIC staff will focus most of their time on the practices we run for the Metro league. All practices will be formatted using a mix of the USA Hockey American Development Model, high end sources, and our own proprietary methods, which is proven to give each player more ice time, puck touches, and game like scenarios. Our plan is for each coach to have an assistant on the ice to run drills while the Head Coach can talk to individual players to ensure each player can improve accordingly.
For Spring/Summer, Our 6U and 8U Program will run a 1:1 Practice to Game ratio. 1 Practice and 1 game. Game nights will most likely be on Friday Nights.
*Game Nights may happen if the Hockey Department are shorthanded on Volunteers.
Equipment: At the beginning of this season, coaches will be looking at each players equipment to ensure that each player is wearing the appropriate gear. Coaches will specifically observe players’ sticks, helmets, skates, shin pads, and elbow pads. As per new USA Hockey Rules, each player will be required to have a neck guard. Mouth guards are not required but strongly recommended by the XIC Hockey Department.
