Youth In-House Hockey League For Travel Level Players
This program is designed for the Youth Travel Hockey Player that wants competition! Due to the recent pandemic many players have lost the opportunity of playing games while missing out on key "game situations" (positioning D-Zone, N-Zone and O-Zone) concepts. We will also cover Power Play and Penalty Kill situations. Every player signed up for this program will be given the opportunity to PLAY in every situation! The Referee on the ice will also serve as a Coach & will provide instruction and reinforcement. Our Coaches will be Aviator Coaching Staff members, as well as prior Junior Hockey & Collegiate Players. We applaud all the spring travel programs that are available but what this program will guarantee is competition under one roof during the uncertainty of Covid & State Restrictions... You will get the leg up on the competition going into the 21-22 season as our staff will push the pace of games and foster a positive environment!
