Wondering What the Instructional Season Will Look Like?
Submitted By Pete Bowen - Instructional Convenor on Mon 08 07, 17
The Sarnia Hockey Association instructional program is committed to provide an atmosphere for hockey instruction that emphasizes skill development and also promotes the establishment of value-based life lessons on the part of its players, including the importance of hard work, dedication to goals, good sportsmanship and discipline.

Sarnia hockey seeks to accomplish this mission by ensuring that its players have a fun positive and developmentally appropriate learning environment from its entry level program.

 Players who have never skated or have limited experience are welcome, and in no time will be up and skating around like real hockey players! Coaches will be available to walk you through the first couple weeks with equipment and motivational tips for an enjoyable first hockey experience.

Players will be given jersey and socks and will skate once a week. We will be using the Hockey Canada model for fun and development of players and also using the lighter blue pucks and smaller nets. Looking forward to a fun season full of action. We are also looking for on ice helpers and any new coaches, so if your interested please contact me.

Any questions or concerns can be texted to Pete Bowen 519-490-8805.

Look forward to seeing you all at the rink this season!

Few tips before season:
-putting tape on bottom of hockey skate blades, and walking around on carpet is a good starting point for getting to the all important hockey stance( knees bent, head up, chest out, two hands on stick)
- play road hockey( stick handle ball, shoot)
-watch videos with children online( hockeyshot.ca has some nice ones on the basics)
-consult your favorite hockey store, or any hockey players you know and practice putting on gear and proper fit of gear. The more comfortable and used to gear the better for the first ice time.
