Skater and goaltender warm-up sessions are scheduled throughout September and intended to provide our young athletes an opportunity to get on the ice prior to tryouts.
Sessions will be led by MVIYHA coaching candidates for the upcoming season. Those interested in leading warm-ups sessions should contact the appropriate traveling coordinator. Their contact information is listed below.
Most sessions are 60 min , however, some older levels might be scheduled for a 90 min session, and will include edge-work, puck-touches, and scrimmage time. The potential skill drills for the upcoming tryout sessions will be provided and practiced as well.
Players will be assigned to a specific time block on a given date. We make every attempt to balance the number of skaters at these sessions, so please only have your participant attend the session to which they have been assigned.
Registration for the warm-up sessions is included the Tryout Registration fee.
In order to be eligible for an AA/A/B1/B2-level (boys) or an A-level (girls) MVIYHA traveling hockey team, your player must participate in the MVIYHA tryout process. For more specific information about our program, please see the MVYHA Tryout Manual, attached below.
