Chipmunk Division (Ages 4-6, born 2008-2010)

Players are introduced to the game of hockey through organized drills, utilizing USA Hockey’s Practice Plans. Though out the season, players are phased into more formal game action, teaching and applying fundamentals. Learning basic rules, such as off-sides, focus on positioning and learning when to shift during the game. Players are given the opportunity to play all positions. Games are facilitated by youth referees, all who have played the game and a coach from each team, allowing them to teach while they are playing. Scores are not posted; there are no standings or playoffs. All players receive a participation award at the end of the season. Players coming out of the Chipmunk division will have a good foundation for the game and will be prepared for Penguin Hockey.
