Player and Goalie Development
As we start the new year, here are a couple of quick Development topics to reflect on.

Woolwich Hockey Academy (Tony Code) – On-ice Development Sessions

The specialized skating and skill development that Tony and his staff bring to WMHA players is not something to be overlooked by coaches. It provides great benefits to our players and coaches are encouraged to get out on the ice with their teams during these sessions and take in the development techniques that Tony and his team are delivering to the players on the ice. Become an active participant coaches! It’s free learning – why pass it up?

WMHA Goalie Clinic

This Saturday (Sept 30th 2017) our goalie clinic sessions are scheduled to begin. I’d like to remind all representative teams that shooters (3 players min.) are requested to be in attendance for these sessions. The players are to be engaged in shooting on goalies to help our WMHA goalies improve on their individual technical skills as a goaltender. Horseplay amongst shooters will not be tolerated. If players are not contributing to the session and creating more of a “distraction”, they will be asked to leave the ice immediately. Also, shooters that do attend are required to be in full equipment (that includes neck and mouth guards as well) – this is mandatory, and not negotiable .

Once again, I wish all WMHA teams the greatest successes this season.Have fun and always play the game safely.
