16U players should be proficient skaters, with full knowledge of gameplay. Coaches will focus on more advanced skills regarding skating and stick-handling. Specialty skills such as plays off the faceoff, and power plays will also be developed. Off-ice conditioning becomes a must at the upper levels.
Practices will be held at the Pensacola Bay Center starting in late October and continuing through March. Practices are usually held twice a week with the possibility of occasional weekend ice time. However, the practice schedule is subject to the ice availability at the Pensacola Bay Center. Practices consist of skills, drills and scrimmage games.
House tournament teams consist of 12-15 skaters and a goalie when numbers allow. They are chosen by the coach according to availability and skill level. Friendly weekend games with other organizations may also be scheduled throughout the season. Evaluations for Travel, Tournament and Select teams are held in the spring, but you may contact us if you are new to the area.
