Rep Development

Attention Coaches and Managers

 Coaches/managers

 

 

The schedule for the development will be upload for the year shortly.  As discussed at the coaches meeting the development is broken down into 3 sessions lasting 8 weeks.  Please look on the website under development to find your team to see when the players are scheduled.  Please remember this is not mandatory to attend but it is recommend that the players go as it will only benefit them.  

 

Novice and Tyke will be doing a total hockey program.

 

M.Atom to Bantam will be broken down by their age groups and then into defence and forward.  

 

PLEASE NOTE REVISIONS MAY STILL BE MADE TO THE DATE DEPENDING ON LEAGUE SCHEDULING OF GAMES.

 

I know for many of you this is something new from the MMHA but we are hoping that it will benefit the players in the long run.

 

Some questions that have been brought forward:

 

Q. Why has Milton changed the development program?

 

The MMHA board decided to change the program as it was felt that the 5 sessions spaced over the course of the year was not benefiting the players.  We are hoping that this not only helps the players in regards to skill development but also the coaches might be able to take what the players are being taught in these programs and use it in their practices.

 

Q. What happens if there is a conflict between League schedule and development program?

 

This is the reason why we have stated that revisions might still be made to the program.  But if it is a one off and the team misses a session there is not much we can do as an organization.  If there are couple of conflicts we will look at moving the team to a different session but that may also change practice schedules as well.  But we will always try to work with the team and the coaches.  We are all in this for the development of the players.  

 

Q.  What about Goalies?

 

Don't worry MMHA has not forgotten about the goalies.  This looks like it will be done through the teams.  Amount for each goalie will be approved at the next board meeting.

 

Q. Will goalies be needed during this?

 

Yes we will need to have some goalies attend.  The Director will be talking to each of the service provider to see when and how many goalies will be need for that week.  The director then will contact the coaches to see if the goalies are available to attend.

 

Q. Who are the service Providers?

 

The development sessions will be run by HSC for Tyke to M. peewee.  Henderson Hockey will run the Peewee to Bantam sessions.

 

Q. Why aren't the midget teams involved in the development.

 

It was brought to the attention of MMHA as the kids get older they have after school commitments and probably wouldn't attend.  

 

If there are any further questions about the development program please contact the director of Coach and player development.  Stephen Coulson at [email protected].

 

Thank you 

MMHA
