Thank you to all the players, coaches, and parents for a great end to the 2018 Spring IP session. Take some good time off, and we will see everyone in a month or so.
Practices will be held Monday evenings and Saturday mornings at Grover Ice Rink. Your practice time will be determined by the coaches during the first practice and more specific information will be sent out the week prior to the season start with regards to when your player should come for the first practice.
If you would like to purchase a Jr Lancer's black hockey jersey ($20) and/or hockey socks ($10) they will be available the first night of practice. (checks only please)
Mid-season you can contact the IP commissioner at firstname.lastname@example.org for Jr. Lancers jersey and sock orders.

We are in need of IP Coaches. Please contact Matt Moragues, OHC IP/Mite director, at email@example.com or Heather Neubauer IP Commissioner, at firstname.lastname@example.org, if you would be willing to help!! I can help direct you with what needs to be done to help with coaching if you have not already coached before as it must be done prior to stepping on the ice.
The Initiation Program (IP) is designed to offer a fun and safe learning environment where players focus on:
The IP Program gives players the chance to learn and improve critical hockey skills such as Skating, Puck Handling, Passing and Shooting all while having fun.
ADM was created with the a core design that valued practices and proper training above all else.
The design of ADM stresses that practices can and should be fun, especially if the kids are all playing together and having a blast with a game that they love. The more they play it, the better chance that they’ll love it. And when you combine a passion for the game with increased puck time, kids will start to excel at it. Play, love, excel. That’s the ADM.
While in the development stages of ADM, it became apparent that critical areas in our system were neglecting kids at a very early age. All children progress through the same development stages and certain aspects of these stages must be addressed at the appropriate points along the development curve in order for our children to reach their potential. ADM provides maximum player development through age-appropriate structure and content.
Without developing skills and certain physical and mental attributes at the appropriate time, the long-term prospects of becoming a truly elite player diminish each day.
