Adult Learn to Play scrimmage
Winterland LTP and East Alton LTP play Friendship Game June 2018
In 2019, Winterland will again organize their Adult Learn to Skate/Play and Extended Learn to Play programs.
But this year will we add a new twist to our basic Learn to Play programs for Beginners and Novice skaters.
Due to the popularity of the program Winterland will offer a 14 week program with our normal 9 week Learn to Skate/Play program but will add 4 scrimmage sessions and one Friendship Game to make it a 14 week extravaganza of hockey.
Clinic days will be held on Saturdays at Webster Groves with the exception of Sunday, July 7th. Scrimmage days being held on Monday nights at Brentwood.
And finishing up the program with a Friendship game in July at Webster Groves.
After being involved in Adult Learn to Play for several years now, our instructors have put together a program where we think it will give the participants a chance to learn new skills during our normal Learn to Play sessions, then give them a chance to apply what they have learn in a game situation but in a controlled atmosphere. It is what we called a “controlled scrimmage”.
During the scrimmages, we will have two coaches on the ice to help instruct and answer questions for the participants while playing the game. This gives us the chance to give instance feedback to players as they play.
Although they will get our normal Learn to Play program with instruction on Skating- both forward and backward, cross-overs, c-cuts, stick-handling and shooting, we feel the scrimmage opportunity also gives them a chance to just “play” hockey and learn from experience.
Registration is open. We strongly suggest you register as soon as possible.
The "Extended Learn to Play" will be more of an educational program for learning the many facets of the Game. For example, Fore-checking, Back-checking, Power Play, Penalty Kill, Stick-check, Poke-check, Gap control, Breakouts, changing on the fly, Front of net presents, plus passing. With a game on the last night.
The Extended Learn to Play program will be an 8 week session:
Session #1: July 8 to August 26th Brentwood Ice Rink
It is our intent to give our participants a wide spectrum of hockey exposure. We know that in an 8 week session we cannot teach everything there is to know about the Game but what we can do is plant a whole lot of seeds and give the participants a wide variety of things to think about.
But most important is that the participants have fun. There is no doubt that the better you get the more fun you have playing but you have to start somewhere and we think our Winterland Adult Learn to Play programs are the best place to start.
