Summer Cross Ice Hockey League (Ages 10 & Under)


What is Cross Ice Hockey?

Cross-Ice Hockey is specifically designed to provide fast results in the most enjoyable environment available. Cross-Ice Hockey is a system whereby skaters play the game along one-third of the width of the rink rather than the full length. The reduced playing area increases the players' need to move faster and gain better control of the puck, and the players recieve more touches of the puck than in a full-ice game. Teams consist of roughly eight players and participate in a 3-on-3 game lasting one hour.

Low player-to-coach ratios further guarantee instruction from our dedicated volunteer coaches. Games are played on both ends of the rink, and coaches are able to individually instruct those skaters not playing in the center ice area. Participants must have completed Hockey 2 or a comparable class to be eligible for Summer Hockey League.

Program Highlights:

The program will run from May 11, 2010 until August 11, 2010

Season will include:

12 Games, 5 Practice Slots, 2 Special Clinics and Year End Tournament, for a total of 20 Ice Slots. This comes to only $8.75 per ice slot!

Full Ice Games will be introduced during the summer as well.

The emphasis will be on FUN for all players while developing players' core hockey skills.

The cross ice games are played ACROSS the width of one zone. It is played 3 on 3 or 4 on 4 as opposed to 5 skaters a side.
