Hockey Practice Schedule
Starting January 4th, 2021
Code Orange Hockey Format-Starts 1/4
Healthy Competition is the theme of the second half of hockey
Here is the summary of our thinking: we have to develop a structure that can easily come apart or go together across the next 10 weeks of unknowns. Inside that structure we are dealing with human pieces of that puzzle. Your kids. Your kids and their hockey hopes and dreams and everyday realities. And maybe too, some of the parents’ realities, preferences and skiing ambitions. I’m asking for commitment in the form of using the RSVP app. What I realize is this not going to be perfect for everyone all the time, I already know that, but I think what it will be is 92% accurate and I’m hoping that for the next few months that’s good enough.
It’s a matter of efficiency.
The RSVP app is as easy as tiktok. It’s so easy a caveman can do it. So many parents have asked me how they can help and the simplest answer is that you can make the biggest impact by using the RSVP app. **It allows practices to be full and coaches to plan dynamic sessions accordingly**. It also allows a player/family to opt out for any number of reasons and not feel like you’re tanking practice. Hockey will continue to be FUN if practices are fun. It takes work to make it fun because the coach has to come up with ways to make it engaging and developmentally appropriate.
The Limitless Future
Possibly we get back tot a point where we are playing games in town, league wide and or statewide. I cannot say. I am however thinking about a nimble enough structure where we can quickly pivot towards more expansive game play whether it be in town or in state, indoor or outdoor, with traditional goals or pond hockey goals, etc and etc.
