SYHI will be featuring the 8U Jr Walleye Division. Endorsed by the Toledo Walleye (ECHL), the Junior Walleye Division will be for selected 2013-14 birth years.
Jr Walleye will practice together weekly, and compete against each other in engaging, high-tempo half-ice games. The Jr Walleye will be overseen by SYHI Hockey Director, Mike Mankowski. SYHI's Skills Staff will assist during on-ice practice sessions. Emphasis will be on developing skating, skills, puck compete, and decision making of all Jr Walleye players.
PLUS... players in the division will be organized into 2 (or 3) North Stars teams and compete in the 8U Little Caesars Amateur Hockey League and various regional tournaments.
Be ready! Work on reaching wide to forehand and backhand. Can use top hand only when on a breakaway or have lots of open ice.
No staring at puck. Pick up an opposing player and stay with him/her.
Move your feet with the puck. Support your teammate who has the puck and "get open".
