HOUSE LEAGUE PROGRAM
 

This always popular Comets program, running November through April, is structured in a “house league” format. It allows players of different ages (6 to 12) and abilities to participate in skill development clinics and supervised cross-ice hockey games. The House League program also bridges the gap between skill development and travel team hockey.  The House League program introduces skaters to recreational hockey games while continuing to develop their skating skills. Each weekend will include a full hour of a practice/skills session and a game. The practices normally include three or more stations of skill development. Games are in a cross ice format to maximize puck contact and stimulate quick thinking and team play. The typical schedule includes Saturday and Sunday afternoons as well as some Sunday mornings. 

Cross ice hockey is played in each of the end zones. The confined space allows for frequent touches of the puck and forces the players to react quickly (changing direction, turning, stopping and starting on both sides) and to make decisions on what to do with the puck and without the puck. Out of necessity, the players learn to think and moves become more instinctive. Team size allows for plenty of ice time for all the players.
