2018-2019 Learn to Play Clinics


Our 20-week hockey development clinics are a great way for girls of all ages (3 – 19) to try the sport in a safe and fun environment. Over 20 weeks, our seasoned coaches teach participants the fundamentals of skating and hockey through a mix of drills, games, and small game scrimmages. 

The clinic format is designed to maximize player development. We use USA Hockey’s American Development Model (ADM) as a guideline, ensuring the weekly activities are age appropriate and most importantly, engaging. You will be surprised who how quickly your child feels comfortable on the ice and learns basic hockey skills.

Our Sand Sharks and Junior Sharks clinics are led by Bill Greim and Rick Gedney, two exceptionally seasoned volunteers with more than 30 years of hockey coaching experience at the youth and high school level.  Although the clinics share the same ice time, the groups have very different clinic objectives and weekly practice plans.
