U9 - Drop in Sessions The intention behind these sessions is to provide players that want to improve their skills, outside of their team practice time, a chance to do so. All of these skills sessions will focus on the fundamental skills and some individual tactics for hockey. We may utilize some small area games to help us teach some tactics to the players, however the use of half ice hockey games will be zero.
The expectation for these sessions is that all players in attendance are there to improve. Poor listening and disruptive behaviour will not be tolerated, and players will be asked to leave the playing surface. All parents will be required to follow FSJMHA COVID protocol. At this time we would appreciate having zero spectators for these sessions as we donâ€™t have the means to manage spectator numbers.
There will be 2 sessions offered per week, one on Tuesdays from 4pm - 5pm and one on Fridays from 4pm - 5. All U9 players are welcome to attend.
