We are going to try something different this fall and add a skills and conditioning session on Saturday mornings at 7am at Hayden FOR PARENTS.
This will be a one-hour session run by LBYH coaches that will focus on the same things our kids are working on: edgework, stickhandling, passing, shooting, small area games and conditioning.
As you all know hockey is a great workout and a lot of fun. So if you want to sharpen you skills for the next beer league game, get back into the sport, try hockey out for the first time, or just want to get a good workout in, get up early and come on out.
A few requirements:
This is limited to LBYH parents only (no kids, older siblings, or the like). You have to have a player currently in the program or have had a player in the program.
Proper equipment is required including the following:
