Defense First Hockey was established to Teach the THINKING part of the game back 13 years ago. 

Spring Hockey should be all about FUN. Having FUN while learning in a calm environment will result in a very competitive team. Our Skill Development will focus on Thinking part of the Game.

With Training Skates, Team Practices and 2 Tournaments we will change your child’s mindset from Reading and Reacting to Initiating and Dictating. From teaching practices to pre game topic discussions your child will grow as a person both on and off the ice. 

By Teaching in Respect rather than Fear your child will develop faster and enjoy their journey in life. Whether they are playing just for fun, possible scholarship and the ultimate the NHL there are lessons along the way. It’s my job to take the time to discuss and assist in their growth as young adults.

Practice will be held twice a week from April to June. We will be announcing the dates and times early new year.

All Skates will be run by Mike Weaver with each team having a separate Head Coach for tournament purposes. Once the rosters have been confirmed, each team will have 10 hours of practice time and play in two local tournaments.

Dates: Future tryout dates will be announced early January 2018
Spring Team Cost: $750 player, $300 goalie
