Hello OYHA Families!
Your Hockey Development Committee (HDC) is excited to announce some changes to our early season development and tryout process!
We will be running two weeks of skills practices lead by our professional skills coaches to kick off our season. These practices will focus on getting our kids back up on their edges and up to speed heading into tryouts. The skills practices will run from September 27th to October 10th.
Tryouts will then run from October 11th through October 17th.
We feel this will be an improvement in many different areas. First it will allow our skaters a better opportunity to get warmed up and back into shape after the off season. Additionally, it will allow our skills coaches a chance to teach the drills to every OYHA player before we hit the ice for tryouts. Finally, it serves to soften the transition from other Fall sports like football, track and soccer for multi-sport families.
We look forward to getting back on the ice with your kids soon. Until then, have a fun Summer and stay healthy!
