Additional Skills for 2017-2018 Season-Driscoll Hockey Skills
Hi all,
 
Tim Driscoll has secured the ice at Roxbury Latin Rink for the winter skills offering and enrollment is officially open. The program is limited to 30 players and open exclusively to NYH players until September 1st so act fast if you want in. 
 
Sign up directions are below and email replies to this message will go directly to Tim.
 
Todd

Hi Todd,

I am very excited to officially open enrollment for the skills program that Driscoll Skating & Skills will be offering to Newton Youth Hockey this season. The skills program will be held at the Roxbury Latin Rink in West Roxbury and will be held on Sundays from November 26th through February 25th, (no session on Sunday, December 24th and Sunday, December 31st). Twelve sessions in total and cost will be $720 for 24 hours of on ice instruction. Program will be limited to 30 players and I will maintain a 6:1 player:coach ratio. There will be an intense focus on Power Skating and stickhandling and shooting with movement. Depending on the curriculum, we may break up into groups or work in stations.

Players can sign up by going to www.driscollhockey.com, enrollment will close at 30 players per session. the 4:00- 6:00 pm group is for Newton Youth Hockey, I will open to other towns September 1st if the program does not fill up. I expect that there will be flexibility on a given week for Newton players to join the 6:00- 8:00 pm session if they have a scheduling conflict.

Conceptually, the two hour time slot will allow us to cover a lot of material and allow us the flexibility to add pucks and movements after we have worked through the Power Skating progressions. The expectation from the players and families should be that they will improve their skating and stickhandling skills in an appreciable manner through their participation in the program. The entire focus of the program will be on improving individual skills in a positive, hockey-rich environment. Hockey IQs should bump up and all players should experience a boost in their self-confidence as they improve.

The program that I will put into place for your group will be similar to the Power Skating program I offered this summer at Warrior Arena in Brighton. The eight two-hour sessions were designed around a specific Power Skating component. Each session featured a series of progressive edge work designed to help the players better understand and execute the skating component and finished with players moving at top speed stickhandling with pucks and incorporating the skating piece.
 
The first session was inside and outside edges followed by six specific Power Skating modules (Eichel, McDavid, Crosby (2) and Karlsson (2) modules), and a final review session.  

I have attached videos below of what we are aspiring to, the skating maneuvers in the video are what we will be working towards.

Best,

Free Public Skate Event

NYH Community,

Welcome back to another exciting year of NYH Hockey. I hope all had an enjoyable and relaxing summer. I also hope everybody is looking forward to getting back on the ice to the game we love. NYH last year in August provided some ice time to our players for a Free Skate. With its success a year ago we want to offer it again this year. The Free Skate is an opportunity for the players to connect with new and old teammates as well as provide a chance to lace them up and get out on the ice. It’s a fun casual environment that all will enjoy. The schedule is below and is broken out by age/team grouping. The Free Skate is treated like a Public Skating event so sticks, pucks and full equipment can be left at home. The one item that is required is your helmet so please remember that as no one will be allowed on the ice without one. Come on down to the rink and join us as we begin another year of this exciting game.

SAVE THE DATE - Puck Drop Dinner/Silent Auction 9/8 at Post 440

Hello Newton Youth Hockey Community!
 
The thrilling Stanley Cup battle between the Penguins and the Predators was a spectacular finish to the 2016-2017 hockey season.  Now it's time to start planning for the 2017-2018 season!
 
SO, before you pack up the car and head to the Cape, please block off the evening of September 8, from 6-9PM for the NYH Puck Drop Dinner and Silent Auction at the American Legion Post 440 (Newton).  We will provide Blue Ribbon BBQ, friends, and fun to start the season.  The dinner is a great chance for families to meet their new teammates and catch up with friends.  In addition to dinner, we will be hosting a silent auction to raise money for NYH.  Last year, we had Patriots and Red Sox tickets up for auction, as well as BU and BC hockey tickets.  We raised thousands of dollars to help cover the costs of rink rental and Valley League fees.  We hope to offer even more items this year!
 
Please watch your e-mail in August for more information about advance ticket sales.
 
We really appreciated your donations for the silent auction last year.  If you already know that you will have items to donate for this year's auction, please contact Brian Bean (abctbean@att.net) to coordinate your donation.  We will provide receipts for your tax-deductible donations.  


Suggested auction items include:

•    Vacation items (such as a house rental or airfare)
•    Event tickets (pro or collegiate sports, theater tickets, concert tickets)
•    Experiences, such as golf outing or access to a celebrity event
•    Sport memorabilia
•    Gift certificates for stores or online retailers
•    Brand new equipment, such as sticks or gloves
•    Your own professional services — for example, career coaching, personal fitness training, dog sitting/grooming, catering, spa, photography, etc.
    
Have a wonderful (and safe) summer.  We look forward to seeing you all in the fall.
