Hey Kids! -You're invited to sign up for the Brainerd Hockey summer puck shooting and stick handling club!
We are continuing the summer shooting program to help promote a low cost, off-ice way to improve your stick handling and shooting skills.
What is it??
The program is an online tracking program to help set some goals on how many pucks your player wants to shoot this summer to help improve their skill level. Instead of requiring you to shoot a specific amount of pucks, we are using this program to allow you to set your own realistic goal and an online way to track and monitor your progress and compare it with the progress of everyone at that age level while still encouraging players to set a high goal and work hard to reach that goal!
We are encouraging players to shoot around 100-200 pucks in a session rather than waiting until the final days and shooting them all in one or two days. The focus should be on using proper technique to shoot the puck harder and more accurately. When kids shoot a lot of pucks in one session they tend to use poor technique and start to develop bad habits that carry over to their time on the ice. We would rather see them shoot less pucks each time more frequently at a higher quality. As an example, players could shoot 50-100 pucks in the morning and then shoot another 50-100 pucks after supper! Remember to also mix in some various stick handling drills for 10-15 minutes each session to really impact your training. Watch the videos below for some pointers on shooting the puck properly, and there are also a few pdf's of stick handling drills to look at.
(program limited to BAHA and girls co-op members only)

How do we sign up??
Go online with the links below that correspond with your child’s level of play for the upcoming season and sign them up! Please be sure to help your player/s with the logging process to help verify they are actually doing the work and meeting their goals. The program runs until September 30th, 2020.
Please use these new links below to track your shots taken for the current summer and NOT the link from last year. We have done this so we can track pucks specifically for the current summer.
