Bruin's Development Program

The Park District's mid-level development program, geared toward preparing ice hockey players for the next level of competition. Following USA Hockey's American Development Model (ADM), our coaching staff will organize station-based practices to increase puck touches and overall on-ice activity. This two day program for children ages 5 to 12 years old, will feature one practice day, along with one session dedicated to small sided, cross-ice games. The goal of these new cross-ice style game nights will allow players to compete in small sided games and develop hockey sense to prepare them for the next level.

Session 1: September 16th - December 17th

Session 2: January 3rd - April 6th

Session 3: April 27th - May 22nd

The safety and protection of all participants are of the utmost importance. All hockey players are required to wear an HECC approved helmet with cage, neck guard, shoulder & elbow pads, hockey pants, cup, shin guards and hockey gloves.
