Skill instructions and drills are done under game situations. Roles of players are starting to form (offensive player more than defensive player, or vice versa). Skills taught include cradling, catching, checking, passing, shooting, pickups, face-offs, picks, screens, faking, power-play, and man-short. Goalies make all decisions in starting the offense. On line changes, the ball goes to the opposite side of the players bench. All players on offence are in motion when required. Players are taught how to play without the ball. Specialty teams get a lot of work. Team defense and player responsibility is stressed. Players are provided with a team jersey. Goalie Equipment (chest protector and shin pads) and goalie jersey is provided to each team by BMLA. When it is your child’s turn to play in net, you will have bring along a pair of hockey pants to wear with the goalie equipment. Your coach may offer to keep a pair in the goalie bag although sizing could be an issue.
