The Atoms Program
We follow the USA Hockey ADM Guidelines
Our program is an introductory skating/hockey program for the first-time child, between the ages of 4-7 (exceptions can be made for first time 8 year olds). It is a full-season winter program (September-February) that teaches the concept of cross-ice team play from Day 1. Our goal is for every child to develop every aspect of their skills, to eventually move up to our Mite Travel Teams.
Program Highlights Include:
Skating - Learning proper power skating/inside-outside edge use/Forward-Backward Strides
Stickhandling - Basics/hand-position/fakes
Positional Play - Offense/Defense/Goaltending
Shooting - Wrist shots/Snap shots/Backhand shots
Nothing gives a child a better feeling than being grouped onto a team. The Atoms program breaks the children up, so they will play In-Hawks games against other teams, and some games/tournaments against other local Atoms programs.
