(Dallas/Richardson) August 13, 2012 – Ice Training Center Richardson (ITC) recently unveiled its new Jr Oilers Youth Hockey Development Program, aimed at helping young players (birth years 2004/05/06) grow aggressively and smartly in the sport through targeted skills training and conditioning, competitive game play, high-intensity practices, and a fall/winter season packed full of more ice time and fun than you’ll find anywhere else.
Under the direction of former pro players, Jr Oilers Mites will hone their skills and employ strategic team systems, all in a positive learning environment that feeds their passion for the game and encourages them to be the best they can be – both on and off the ice.
The Jr Oilers participate in a USAH Mite Approved Season that includes 71 GUARANTEED ON-ICE SESSIONS, plus Holiday Ice. They will play 38 games (a mix of half-ice and full-ice games/TAHA Mite American Development Model), 22 practice sessions, and 11 ADM Skills Enrichment Clinics (instructed by former pro players).
And don’t forget the FREE game play/on-ice activities that are available over holiday break.
Jr Oilers utilize USA Hockey certified officials and USA Hockey certified ACIR ice hockey instructors.
The fee for the fall/winter season, which runs from September 2012 through March 2013 – is only $799.
Register now, and sign up with a buddy to receive a FRIEND REFERRAL DISCOUNT. Each Jr Oiler will receive an NHL style jersey and socks.
