The youth program of the Mohawk Valley Hockey Club will begin on Saturday, January 7th, 2017 at the YMCA in Mohawk. It will run for 12 Saturdays from January through March. Our age groups are 6-8 and 9-13. We do require that participants be at least 6 years of age by January 7th, 2017 and no older than 13 years of age by January 7th, 2017. These dates apply to the 12 week program only. Please bring a copy of the participants birth certificate to registration.
Please note, there is NO skating involved with this program, it is played entirely in sneakers!
The Mohawk Valley Hockey Club's youth floor hockey program is the only one of it's kind in the area!
The goals of the program are simple: teach the game, form friendships, instill respect for each other and of course have fun! For each session, the first part will be practice and skill building and the second part will be playing a game. For a list of required protective equipment for each player, please see the "Minimum equipment list for individual players" below. Please note, we are working hard o raise funds to purchase goalie equipment as well as helmets and gloves to be available for use. We are also looking into having a summer floor hockey program and new information will be announced as we arrive closer to that point.
TIME SLOTS AND AGE GROUPS ARE SET!
The time slots and age groups for the MVHC Youth Program have been finalized. The 6, 7 and 8 year old players will be playing from 8:30am - 10:00am. The 9, 10, 11, 12 and 13 year old group will be playing from 10:30am - 12 noon. Please note there are a couple of changes from the original plans. Because of the number of players we have, the nine year olds will be playing in the 10:30 group (we originally had the nine year olds in the early group). We also have a modification in the time slots themselves. Initially, the first group was supposed to start at 9:00am, but since we have so many players in that group, the YMCA will let us start at 8:30am to give us more time! If there are any questions, please call or text Scott at 868-1051.
COACHES AND VOLUNTEERS NEEDED!
We are looking for more coaches and volunteers for the youth program! Coaches will be helping out with the skills stations and games. We would like to have a few volunteers on the floor to help out with aspects of the program like time keeping, etc. If you would like to coach or volunteer for either time slot or both, please call or text Scott at 868-1051.
