2021 Registration Learn to Skate / Learn to Play

Learn to Skate and Play with Tim Driscoll

(Driscoll Skating and Skills)

 

Tim Driscoll is the founder of Driscoll Skating and Skills.   Tim has been teaching hockey players to skate for decades.  He is a four-year NCAA hockey player (Princeton) and played professional hockey with the Boston Bruins minor league affiliate the Maine Mariners (AHL).

Tim and his team will teach a progression of skating basics designed to make kids comfortable on the ice so they can learn to move freely and confidently on their skating edges.  The foundation of any hockey player’s skill set is their ability to skate.  Only then can we introduce other hockey skills along the way to develop young hockey players.  The Learn to Skate & Play program will be a station-based program (small groups) and will feature drills that help our players with skating and puck handling, all while having fun as they are introduced to the game of hockey.  

Volunteers Needed:  Our program is run entirely by volunteers.  While we will have a Professional instructor on the ice for each hour, to plan, organize, and supervise the on-ice activity, we need parents / guardians / volunteers to help on the ice as well.  Kids need to be guided into groups and constantly re-directed to maintain focus.  This is also a great opportunity for new Coaches to learn some fantastic coaching skills from an experience and knowledgeable crew.  If you are interested in helping on the ice, please Register as a Coach on the SYH website and in the comments field of your registration indicate Learn to Skate and Play.

2021 Registration Instructional Cross Ice Mites

Instructional Cross-Ice Mites

Eligibility:

  • Boys and Girls ages 5-8.
  • Advanced skaters aged 4 (by recommendation of I-Mite Director and with Board approval).
  • New skaters aged 9 (by recommendation of I-Mite Director and with Board approval).

Cost:

  • $875 per player

Structure:

  • Instructional Cross Ice Mites (I-Mites) participate in a season that spans 27 weeks through the fall, winter, and early spring.  I-Mites will be on the ice for 50 hours throughout the season.  Practices and evaluations are held on Saturdays at Stoneham Arena at 4pm.  Games are played on Sunday mornings between 630am and 800am at two locations (Stoneham Arena and Hockeytown USA in Saugus).  The schedule will be distributed 12 games at a time.  The break week will be used to add more teams to the league if there is interest from other towns or from within the SYH community.
  • Practices will follow the USA Hockey guidelines for small area games and reduced ice surface practices and games.  The focus of I-Mites should be emerging skating and skill development with an emphasis on fun over winning.
  • Games are played 4 vs 4 plus a goalie with a reduced size net.  The game is a running time clock using a “buzzer” format where play is briefly stopped every 2-minutes to change groups of kids on the ice.  Scores and standings are not kept.  A “referee” is used to keep the game flowing and the action constant – retrieving pucks from the nets, and re-positioning the nets when they become dislodged.  Referees are not on the ice to officiate games – no penalties are called.  Coaches are responsible for ensuring safe play and good sportsmanship.

Timeline:

  • The I-Mite season timeline is as follows:
    • Registration opens in Mid-August.
    • 2-weeks of evaluations beginning in Mid-September.
    • 12-weeks of one practice and one game per week beginning in early October.
    • 1-week break at Christmas time.
    • 12-weeks of one practice and one game per week beginning in early January.
  • For the 2021-2022 Season
    • Evaluations will be held Saturday 9/18/21 and Saturday 9/25/21 at 4pm
    • Games begin on Sunday 10/3/21.

Opened: 08/13/2021
