First Game
by posted 09/07/2019

Great Game Team!

First game is under our belt.  Everyone did a great job working together and learning positions.  With only two substitutes it was hard to get a well rested line on the ice.

I saw lots of good plays, good sitck work and hustle out there today.

We had a couple of players in their first U10 game today!  Great job!

We has offsides and icing calls today.  Please help me explain offsides and icing to your players.

Offsides: I found a good video on YouTube that explains offsides. Link:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WxiUccHD1Bc

Icing: This call can be difficult to understand.  This video gives a good description: Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NEzyTOySsLc

Tomorrow's practice will be at Nashua Conway Arena

 
See you there.
