Team Power Breakfast!!

With all the hockey this weekend, we thought the boys might need some "pancake power" to keep their energy up! So....right after the early game on Saturday, the team is invited to our house (34 Nevin Lane - off Kellow Dr) for some pancakes. Parents and siblings are also invited (or can drop off if you wish).

Hope you all can come!

Rescheduled Game

Please note:

Our game vs. NR Raiders on Feb 23 in Crapaud has been rescheduled to Sunday, Jan 13/2013 @7:20 (APM).  This icetime had to be rescheduled due to the Sweetheart Tournament.  I realize this is short notice and the game time may be a little less desirable however ice times can be very difficult to get and we have to get all the regular season games in.  On the upside; no travelling to Crapaud this year for us!

Tomorrow Away Game: Sunday, Jan 13/2013 vs NR Raiders @ 7:20 (APM)

Great Sportsmanship

I received this email about Saturday's game.

 

 Ian,

 I just wanted to drop a line to you regarding Saturday’s game against Sherwood Challengers.  My son, Nolan Barry, was the lucky player to hop into nets after our goalie left the game with a bump to the head.

 Your player, #66 Adam Conklin showed a sportsmanship that I have yet to see, especially in hockey.   He came over to Nolan several times to give a pat on the shoulder and tell him good job.  Ironically, when I sat down to watch the game, I noticed Adam first because of his size – I was a little terrified for our players, ha ha.  How refreshing to be so wrong!

 Please feel free to pass my comments along to his parents – they should be very proud of their son’s sportsmanship.

 Thank you and have a great day!

 

  Lesa Barry

Gift Card Fundraiser
Just a reminder:  Order forms and dollars are due tomorrow, Dec 8th.  Please ensure you hand them in to John and Cherie (or the coaches) to allow the cards to be purchased and returned to you. 
 
Sniper Training
 
1.    Develop good weight shift. A strong wrist shot comes from getting your lower body into the shot. Like in golf and baseball, weight must shift from the back-leg to the front-leg as you execute the wrist shot (or any hockey shot for that matter).
 
2.   Eyes on Target. As players practice the weight shift exercise they should look over their front shoulder toward the target so they see and visualize where they want the shot to go.
 
3.   Build Fast Hands & Quick Wrists. While weight shift adds power to the shot, hand position and hand movement determine accuracy and control.
A strong and accurate shot will start with the puck on the heel of the player’s stick, the puck behind the back leg with hands out in front of the body (avoiding “hip lock” where the top hand is stuck at the player’s hip where it can’t move freely).
The shooter sweeps the puck, from back to front, as their weight shifts to create shot power. It’s important that as the puck moves the players arms and hands stay out in front –top hand remaining out in front of the lead shoulder as weight is shifted.
When the puck reaches just inside the knee of the shooters front leg he or she will need to make two quick hand motions.
A)  A fast open & close of the stick blade by rolling his or her wrists back-to-front. This helps generate the spin on the puck to make it fly straight and accurately.
B)  And at the same time a fast & hard “push-pull” snap of the wrists. The top hand snaps – pulls – the butt-end of the stick back toward the stomach; while the bottom hand pushes toward the net and controls where the shot finishes. At proper finish the hands are crossed with the toe of the stick pointed toward where you were aiming.
Hand finish is key to where the shot goes – i.e. high corners, five hole or low corners – because where the player throws their hands and finishes pointing the toe of the stick is where the puck will go. To shoot high, throw the hands high with the wrist-snap and follow through. To shoot low keep the follow through low.
 
4.   Follow Through & Follow Your Shot. After release of the shot (and not before) teach your young player to turn their shoulders, hips and toes toward the target. They should follow their shot to anticipate a rebound and 2nd chance to score. 
 
Fact: "At the age of 10, Wayne Gretzky scored 378 goals in Brantford's atom league."
 
You miss 100% of the shots you never take
-Wayne Gretzky

For those who may have missed Saturday's Game:

Thanks to Coach Ian, the Rampage have received a great offer from the Olde Dublin Pub where the owner will donate 50% of the dollars collected from gift card sales back to the team!! As we need to raise additional funds in order to pay for tournament entry fees, this will help a lot!

To make it simple, we suggest $25 or $50 cards be sold. They could make a great stocking stuffer (or even get you out of the dog house some day ;) ) Each player is requested to sell at least $100 in gift cards (however, there is currently no upper limit).

You can find order forms under the "Downloads" tab on this site. We will also bring extras to the games.

We request that you please turn in the order forms and dollars to John and Cherie (or the coaches) by December 8th to allow the cards to be purchased and returned to you.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask.
