PYH 2012-2013 Midget Minor 16U – SIR Season Plan and Information

Our goal this year is to challenge the boys on and off the ice to be better players as well as young men.  The coaching staff has a very honest and straight forward approach to the game.  Our expectations for the boys will be high and we will work together to make sure they are met.  We will be working closely with Jamie Bird of Rochester Monarchs 16U team and some players might have the option of practicing and playing with them as needed.
The list below encompasses our approach to the season:
  • Plan to play at highest level possible including AAA competition
  • Coaches will decide whether to play in league or follow an independent schedule after tryouts
  • Team will be comprised of best 96’s and 97’s at tryouts
  • Competitive and fun environment.
  • Spilt Season
  • 3 Tournaments before High School season
  • 1-2 Tournaments after High School season
  • Approximately 35+/- games with Tournaments
  • Practice twice a week with majority at SIR
  • Roster Size 2 Goalies, 9-10 Forwards and 6 Defenseman (17 to 18 total).
  • Some local games scheduled during the weekdays.
  • Most of our travel games will be in Western / Central New York.
  • Economically sensitive budget
