2019 Eagles Varsity Girls Summer Camp, will be taking place August 5-9.
Please see the attached flyer for details on the camp and sign up instructions!
The NUSE Hockey Association is pleased to present the 5000 Puck Challenge and Puck handling Challenge to its players.
The program was created as a development opportunity for hockey players to develop their shooting and scoring skills and for goalies to receive shots at home. The Challenge also reinforces the USA Hockey Long Term Athlete Development (LTAD) model which sets out a development progression or pathway for hockey players. There’s evidence to show that daily micro-practices are effective and often superior to longer practice sessions once or twice a week. When you practice a little each day, skills don’t erode. In fact, they consolidate. It’s like a bank account earning compound interest: a virtuous spiral where skill accrues quickly.
Don’t miss out on getting one of the 5000 Puck Challenge T-Shirts or Puck handling Biscuits
IMPORTANT: Please be honest in what is reported, players need to learn that it takes discipline
and work to achieve results. Shortcuts or false reporting is not acceptable. The shot challenge is only
for an at home event (does not include shots taken at summer hockey or camps).
Build a foundation of technique skills
Increase proficiency and confidence
Have fun building your skills!
Getting Started What you need:
• A regulation size net or designated net area (for example: Street hockey, or ice hockey nets, drawn or taped location on a concrete wall)
• Shooter tutor or targets (Can be made out of plywood or purchased)
• Shooting surface (concrete floor, driveway, heavy plastic sheet)
• 10-100 pucks
• Hockey gloves
• Stick (should be a few inches shorter than the one used on the ice as player will not be wearing skates)
• Players must follow the directions and meet the minimum number of shots required. Players may and
are encouraged to shoot more than the minimum required shots per week. Players should engage friends and work together.
• If player cannot hit the upper corner of the net, they can shoot to the lower corner or the middle level
of the net until they can hit the upper corner.
Form and mechanics are more important than accuracy. Click the link below for tips.
