Players have much more fun after they have learned the basics of stickwork: scooping, throwing, catching, and cradling. We have found that working with players on these skills, even just a little, in a warm gym in the winter best prepares them to enjoy the early spring practices when the cold breeze whistles through their helmets.
Rec winter indoor training takes place on Sundays from December through February. It is open to players that are registered for the spring season in the Pee-Wee through Junior age groups. These sessions are completely optional and should never take precedence over in-season winter sports.
Although the focus is on stick skills with limited contact, players practice in full equipment to get them accustomed to their gear prior to the start of outdoor practice in the spring.
