Holy Name Youth Hockey provides an environment where all players have the opportunity to develop a long-term passion and appreciation for ice hockey through individual skill development, teamwork, competitive play and camaraderie.
While games are great fun, practice and core-hockey skill development are the keys to a hockey player's improvement and advancement in the game. Priority will be placed on improving our players' skills through multiple touches, effort and proper technique. We hope to accomplish this by emphasizing good coaching at every level, running efficient and fast-moving practices, and focusing on individual-skill development. Again, we want what is best for your children during the season, and this usually happens when they are appropriately challenged but also given frequent opportunities for on-ice success.
“The highest priority is to plan a practice so exciting and constructive that players can’t wait for the next practice." --Jack Blatherwick
