Parent and Coach Tips of the Week
Oct 28, 2014  9:25 AM
Parent Tip of the Week - Cheer good plays by the opposing team. Once in a while, try acting so that an observer who doesn't know you and your child will not be able to tell which team your child is on.

Coach Tip of the Week - Give your athletes a chance to officiate at practice to learn how hard the job of the official can be. Once they've experienced officiating, your athletes are more likely to respect officials in game situations who might miss a call.

Sled Hockey Update
Oct 1, 2014  9:06 AM
The San Diego Ducks had an incredible sled hockey practice this past Sunday with two more new players and a handful of new volunteers. Some of the volunteers got in sleds for the first time and tried to keep up with our team players who are improving every week. We focused on skating and small space drills and ended with a 5 on 6 scrimmage where we learned we need to work on spreading out, creating space, and passing. Check the "More" link for video.

In other great news, we were approved for the USA Hockey Sled Grant for 5 sleds, we submitted our application for the USA Hockey Pacific District Growth and Development (Robert Freeland) Grant, and we are sending our new goalie to the Sled Hockey Goalie Camp in Fort Wayne, IN on October 10-12. We already have two new players signed up to try sled hockey at our next practice, and if we have enough players and fundraising we may attend the NHL Sled Hockey Classic representing the Anaheim Ducks this November. However, our main focus is to register as many attendees for our Sled Hockey Clinic as possible and to prepare for the Disabled Hockey Festival in April 2015 with a few scrimmages or games before then.

For more information on the program and upcoming events, please contact:
