The program will begin on April 28, 2018 and will conclude on July 7, 2018.  

Winterland will also be holding an Open House for the participants families so they can get a chance to speak to representatives from the local youth hockey organization that they will join in the upcoming winter.

The JR Blues program is a 9 week program that is designed to introduce first time players, ages 9-15, to the sport of hockey. Registrants will be separated into two groups of up to 36 players. Throughout the nine weeks, participants will learn the fundamentals of hockey along with players that are at a similar skill level. One week is dedicated to classroom work. The program will begin on April 28, 2018 and will conclude on July 7th.

Click here to register for the 2018 Extended Learn to Play Scrimmage Program

We learned from last year that we needed a program so that the JR. Blues Learn to Play participants had something available for those that wanted to keep skating and having fun after their JR. Blues LTP Program was over. So in an effort to nurture their enthusiasm, we have developed a six week scrimmage program that will include 10 to 15 minutes of basic instruction each day and then allow the kids to scrimmage the rest of the time. This program is basically an extension of the normal Winterland summer program for Squirts, Peewees, and Bantams. We feel it will keep the kids skating and also allow us to better educate the kids on game play.

Winterland helps out MIHOA to improve young Officials

For the 4th year in a row, the Winterland Ice Hockey Program will partner with the MIHOA(Missouri Ice Hockey Officials Assn) to host a weekend of hockey in an effort to give MIHOA an opportunity to train and evaluate select Level 1 and Level 2 referees. Each friendship game will have Referees but at the same time, Instructors will be on the ice to help train the young Referees.  MIHOA will be filming some of the play so they can review the referees work after each competition.   Head Coaches will be asked to attend a post-game debriefing after each game. This is a major step to improving the MIHOA staff and our referees.

This all happens during the Winterland Friendship Games at the Webster Groves Ice Rink in July of 2017.  Winterland hosts a weekend of youth games each July dedicated to promoting friendship and playing the game for  fun. There are no trophies and no Champion. Just a weekend of fun and excitement for Squirts, Peewees and Bantams.

 

You can check into becoming an Official by visiting the MIHOA web site by clicking on the MIHOA logo above.



Friends of the Winterland Programs

We want to say Goodbye to one of our best supporters.  Total Hockey has been bought out by a firm on the East Coast and will no longer be a part of the Winterland hockey movement.  For years, Michael Benoit, was there whenever we needed help, advise, or just some goodies for the kid's.  Although Total Hockey is gone, we are proud to have Michael as a friend, mentor, and there when we need advice.

Thank you Michael for your help over the years.
