    Team Practice Times

    For age groups that have two teams, we are doing something new this year.  There will be two hours of ice time on their team practice day.  Team 1 will have the first half hour to themselves on the ice, Team 2 will then join them on the ice for 1 hour.   Team 2 will then have the final half hour of ice to themselves.  Teams will not be decided until mid September, so all players will be on the ice for 2 hours (or potentially partial off ice conditioning)

    Practice days/times are as follows and start the week of September 8th, 2015:

    Mites Thursdays - 6:40pm to 7:40pm
    Squirts Wednesdays - 5:15pm to 7:15pm
