Hockey School - A Grimsby Minor Hockey Association tradition!
Submitted By Barry Patterson on Thursday, June 6, 2019
Our Hockey School returns again in the fall.

In its 11th season guided by Monika Patterson and under the development direction of head coach Barry Patterson, a Hockey Canada NCCP High Performance certified coach. With Group Leaders Ken Watson and Phil Evans, the GMHA’s Hockey School program is uniquely qualified to start your family, and players, on their minor hockey journey.

The GMHA Hockey School program runs 1 hour a week, Saturday mornings (8:30 am or 9:30 am) from September 28th through to April 4th, typically 22- 24 weeks of instruction (given holidays and rink black-out dates)

The GMHA Hockey School caters to non-skaters and those players developing the basic skating skills required for hockey, typically aged 4 through 6 (please contact Coach Barry for inquiries about older or younger players). Each hourly session is divided into three instruction groups (junior, intermediate and “Advanced”) where skill appropriate drills are delivered by head instructors, augmented by on ice coach helpers. Players progress through skills and drills following a tried and true seasonal plan that delivers development and fun.

The GMHA Hockey School typically sells out so early registration is encouraged to guarantee your player’s spot. Registration can be done through the Hockey Canada link on the 2019-20 Registration tab on the GMHA Website. For additional registration information or assistance please contact the registrar at [email protected]

Have a great summer and see you at the rink,

Monika and Coach Barry
