COVID-19 Update for Winterland Programs as of September 23, 2020

Winterland Families,

Please remember to wear your masks at all times no matter where you are at in the community!!!

All of our youth programs have ended for the 2020 summer and the only other Youth program we have does not start until November 7th with are No-Check Scrimmages for kids Under 17. 

 As of September 23, we are approved to have Inter-squad scrimmages for kids 14 to 18 year old.  Since all we do is controlled scrimmages, our No-Check program is 100% within the new County Guidelines.

All of our Adult programs are operating within the St. Louis County Guidelines for Adult Contact sports.   We only scrimmage with the skaters from with in our own program so we are within the restrictions from the County.

St. Louis County Health Dept. published their Guidelines and the rinks published theirs.  The next update might be October 15th.

We want to extend our sincere thanks to all the Winterland families that help us get through the summer.   

We are very proud of the fact that we had "ZERO" Covid-19 cases due to Winterland activities. 

Thank you so much for your patience and willingness to hang there.

Yours in Hockey,

Coach

2021 JR. Blues Learn to Play Program for 9 to 15 year olds

Winterland is proud to once again partner with the St. Louis Blues Youth Hockey movement and operate the 2020 JR. Blues Learn to Play for 9 to 15 year olds.   Over the past few years the program has been a great success and given kids the chance to enjoy playing the great game of ice hockey.

The JR Blues program is a 12 week program that is designed to introduce first time players, ages 9-15, to the sport of hockey.  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 to help them understand game play and they even get a chance to discuss the role of on Ice Officials with real a referee from the Missouri Ice Hockey Officials Association.

The program will begin on April 24, 2021 and will conclude on July 17th.  

Winterland will also hold a special meeting for all  the participant's parents so they can get a chance to ask questions and gain knowledge regarding getting involved in youth hockey in the St. Louis Area.

We learned from years of doing this 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 5 week scrimmage program to allow the kids to play some hockey. 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 6th 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 each July.  Winterland hosts an event 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.
