Spring Programs

To All,
I know everyone already has received a couple emails so far. This one will be in a little more depth and hopefully answer most of your questions you have about this spring. 
First off I would just like to say I hope everyone had a good year. As we all know we had a big part of our association resign before this year. So the year was a little Rocky but we managed to make it. Now let's focus on getting our association better with this spring skills and falls skills before next season. We will also be trying to put together a summer dryland for the which I will be talking about later. 
Kids develop bad habits and a break down in their stride during the season. We do these skills and power skating so instead of going into the summer with bad habits. We hopefully change that so come next year the good will be instilled in there head and not the bad. 
Any horseplay on or off ice will NOT be tolerated. The first warning will be verbal and a reminder to behave. The second your son or daughter will be kicked off the ice for the remainder of that ice slot. The third warning will be the removal from Spring Skills WITH NO REIMBURSEMENT. Just remember one thing, for a successful team we need RESPECT and DISCIPLINE from the kids. 
Myself and Pat decided to take a little different approach at these youngsters for this spring. An hour long of either 4 on 4 or skills is just to long. 
It'll be an hour session. 15-20 minutes of skills. 40-45 Minutes of scrimmaging. Hopefully each age group will have there own session but that will be determined by numbers. 
4 ON 4: 
Everyone's whole season is ran by structure. This is a chance for your son or daughter to just go out and have fun. Play shinny hockey and be creative.  In the past we tried combining age levels. We are not doing that this year because there is just to much maturity and skill levels between kids. We will be having a supervisor on the ice for the Squirts/10Us. With a coach on each bench. I don't know how many teams yet. That will be determined by the number of kids. If a lot of kids show up, then we'll be running 1:30-2:00 minute shifts just so someone isn't sitting on the bench for a long period of time. Pee Wee and above a supervisor will be present. Have fun and play some shinny for an hour. 
Squirts/10UB, Pee Wee/12U, Bantams, Highschool. All these age levels will have there own hour of ice. Our main focus in skills is skating, puck control and passing. The last 15-20 minutes we will play a small area game
Pat Iozzo will be running this session. This will be for the Pee Wee level kids and above. Skating is the most important part of anyone's game. Once you get your edges down and your stride everything else skill wise will come after that. I don't care how good a person shot is, how good there hands are, if they can't skate they'll never be a great hockey player.  
Instructed by Margaret Ann Erwin. This will be for the Mini Mites and starting players that are looking forward into hockey next year. If your son or daughter is good enough to move up too LTS ADVANCED then we'll do it. 
Also instructed by Margaret Ann Erwin. Designed for Mites, 8U, Squirts and 10U. 
Travis Weber will be holding a clinic once a week. The emphasis of this clinic is basic through advanced goalie training and techniques. Goaltenders who sign up for this clinic can also attend the appropriate age level clinic and 4 on 4s (Mini Mite, Mite/8U, Squirt/10U, PeeWee/12U Bantam/14U and HS Clinic) as a goalie.
Every group will have 12 sessions(except Webs goalie class). An hour a session at a little over $10.00 an hour. Hopefully I'll have the schedule done and online before the weekend. Myself and Pat Iozzo are also in the making of putting a dryland together for the summer. We want to  give each and every kid an opportunity to get better. Watching all the age groups this year and last. We are far behind the better associations in skill level. We want that to change. We can't force people to go. We can only encourage it and give them an opportunity to get better. Like the old idiom says "you can lead a horse to water but you can't make it drink". 
Registration will be as follows

iCal - What is this?

Many of us utilize electronic calendars, on our computers and/or smartphones.  Most of these calendaring applications support the automatic updates from "iCal" feeds.  So rather than manually adding practices and games to your calendar, utilize technology to do that for you. 

iCalendar is a standard for calendar data exchange. The standard is sometimes referred to as "iCal", which also is the name of the Apple, Inc. calendar program that provides one of the implementations of the standard.

Here is a link to one of the NGIN support Articles on iCal: http://support.ngin.com/questions.php?questionid=37

Although this is by no means an exhaustive list of iCal applications and resources, it should give you a starting point in your research:

RSS - What is this?

This is a way for families to receive updates from the website, news "feed", automatically, NOT via email.   NGIN events and News Articles support RSS. 

"RSS feed can have the same content as a webpage, but it's often formatted differently. When you subscribe, Internet Explorer automatically checks the website and downloads new content so you can see what is new since you last visited the feed."

The acronym RSS stands for Really Simple Syndication, and is used to describe the technology used in creating feeds.

Here is a link to the NGIN support article on RSS feeds: http://support.ngin.com/questions.php?questionid=35

An RSS Feed Reader is required, but they are free and easy to use.  NGIN recommends the following RSS Feed Readers:

Google Reader (web-based), Bloglines (web-based), NewsGator (desktop, web and mobile), Shrook (desktop mac)
