FALL 2016 DETAILS
The fall season will focus on skills and technical training as well and strength and conditioning for U12 and U14 age groups. Skills sessions will be held once a week on Sundays. Practices will begin August 28 and run through October 23.
All players are invited to join the Rapids - whether a returning Rapids player or players new to travel hockey. Keep your skills sharp and work on conditioning for the upcoming Winter Indoor season.
Includes skills and conditioning. All team practices will be held on Sunday from 6:00-8:00 pm at Evergreen SportsPlex in Leesburg. Coaches will be Charlotte MacDonald & Caitlin Baker. Goalie Coaches will be Meg Dudek and Kieran Sweeney.
Players who will be aging up to the next age group as of this coming Winter Indoor season may participate with their new age group if they wish (ie, if a U12 player will be aging into the U14 age group as of this winter may participate in the U14 training during the fall).
Players will be placed with an assigned squad after the second week of practice.
Position-specific training for goalies will run Sunday nights at Evergreen Sportsplex from 6:00-8:00pm.
