RYHL Instructional - Skills, Drills, and Fun
The RYHL will also offer instructional hockey. The Skills, Drills, and Fun program will be available to non-travel players only at this time. The total season start, and end dates are in the process of being finalized by the Board of Directors, Hockey Director, and Cedar Rapids Ice Arena management. The players will receive around 40 ice touches of practice through the duration of the season for a cost of $475. This is for the type of player that is looking to learn the game of hockey in a positive environment but are not ready for the commitment to travel hockey. All players must have gone through the Learn To Play Program offered by the Cedar Rapids Ice Arena.
The practices will occur twice per week with Hockey Director, Dustin Timm leading the development of the players supplemented by willing volunteer coaches. This is a USA Hockey sanctioned program so all volunteer coaches must go through appropriate registration and certification. Practices will consist of FUNdementals such as skating, pucks skills, and a healthy dose of small area games that incorporate hockey concepts.
