PROGRAM DATES: MARCH 15 - MAY 27
(No ice March 19-28)
The Northwest Chargers are excited to present our Spring and Summer 2021 offerings. The goal of the spring program is to continue to develop the skills necessary to strengthen the abilities of our young players and take them to the next level. We are happy to welcome back our core Coaching Staff, Players and grow the quality of our offerings.
We will begin the program with a series of evaluation skates for the Mite though Bantam-aged players the week of March 15th. All 2008 birth year players that register for our program will have the opportunity to participate in a checking clinic that will be run by 200X85, (participation in a checking clinic is mandatory prior to the spring season). At the conclusion of the evaluation skates, Mite though Bantam players will be placed in groups to continue their development process consisting of skills, positional play, and controlled games in a competitive environment. There will be an additional offering for goalies to attend goalie-specific training sessions. And finally, there will be opportunities for players to participate in tournaments and/or on showcase teams for an additional fee.
Our Midget-aged registrants will be drafted by the Midget coaching staff to create four teams. These teams will play in sixteen controlled games with officials and standings. Tournament teams will also be created at this level for an additional fee. We have spots reserved in the Chi-Town Shuffle in April and will be on the look-out for other tournament opportunities.
All players will receive a spring reversible jersey, and the cost of spring will include four summer skates in the month of July.
We welcome Coach Mark Roy to our Chargers organization this Spring Season. Mark is charged with creating a beginner hockey program that will be fondly known as The Future Chargers. The Future Chargers are a program that will introduce the game of hockey to our young pre-mites and teach the basic skills to become future travel hockey players. Currently the Director of Team and Player Services at 200x85 LLC, Mark comes to us most recently from the Chicago Mission. Mark has a very extensive background focusing mostly on player development which spans from his high school years, through camps, coaching, player development both at home and abroad. With too many accolades to note, we are thrilled to add him to the Chargers family. More information regarding the Future Chargers and Mark will be available soon.
After a very long, and extremely valuable relationship with Coach Zach Drane and Good As Gould Hockey School, we have decided to change directions in our offerings for our goaltenders and partner with GDI Midwest beginning this Spring. We welcome Minnesota native, Nick Lehr as our new Chargers Goalie Director. Nick has a young and fresh perspective of the game as a recent Division 1 player, having coached goalies, as an assistant, and as a scout and evaluator of hockey talent throughout China and the U.S. Nick will call the Mount Prospect Ice Arena his home away from home, as he embarks on his new position with the Chargers and also serves as Goalie Director of the Reapers Hockey Association.
Dedication to our spring program is crucial as we begin to plan for an enhanced and competitive fall program. We know that there are many options available in the hockey community, and we are extremely grateful for your interest in our program.
Wishing you all good health and good hockey as we look forward to Spring 2021.
