Novice Development Program - Registration Now Full
Submitted By AMHL on Thursday, August 9, 2012
Registration is now full for an exciting new initiative for the upcoming 2012-2013 season – the Enhanced Novice Development Program.

Please contact Kevin Williamson, Director of Player & Coach Development, to be added to the waiting list.

Instead of fielding a rep team at the Minor Novice age level that carries a high participation cost and large time commitment for very young players and new parents to rep hockey, the AMHL is running a power skating and skills development program for Minor (2005) and Major Novice (2004) players.

In addition to their regular weekly house league game and practice, the players who register for this program will be on the ice an extra two times a week in skating, skills development and 3-on-3 hockey sessions. There is no travel involved and the cost is significantly less than the cost to play on a rep team.

Summary of the Program
A 23 week program of power skating, skills development and 3-on-3 games for Minor (2005) and Major Novice (2004) age players running from September 17 to March 9. Players will be on the ice for a total of 4 hours per week: 2 hours with the Novice Development Program and 2 hours with their house league team. The cost of the program is only $600 for 46 hours of instruction (approximately $13 per hourly session).

“It's like going to a hockey camp every week, but at a much lower cost.”

There is limited space - registration is being capped at 30 Minor (2005) age players and 15 Major (2004) age players.

Note: Registration is now full in the program. Please contact Kevin Williamson, Director of Player & Coach Development, to be added to the waiting list.
