AHA Bantam 1 Quick Update 9.18.21

1. As I told the boys in the locker room after the game this afternoon, there was a lot to like but a LOT we need to work on. Please let your boys know the points of emphasis this week at practice will be shooting accuracy, breakout coverage, backchecking/angling and offensive zone faceoffs. We will be sending some materials on that last point that I would ask the boys to review before our Wednesday single team practice.

2. Reminder we have a game tomorrow (Sunday) night 6:30pm at Haverhill vs. NH East. I don't know much about them other than that it looks like they have the same color scheme as us, so please make sure you have a dark numbered jersey in your bag (the blue HSHS jerseys should work for those who have them). Always a good idea to keep one in your bag just in case. Please let me know if you will not be there if you have not done so already.

3. Just some housekeeping - I forgot to settle up with people following that pre-season skate we had last month. Cost is $36 per skater (goalies free) - Venmo @Timothy-Bennett-26 when you get a moment if you have not done so already.

Thanks

AHA Bantam 1 Weekly Update - 9/13/21

1. Practice tonight 7:20pm - 90 minute session with HS Gold. We will practice together (breaking off into smaller groups as needed for some drills). Please make sure you have a WHITE and DARK practice jersey so we can scrimmage.

2. Wednesday night 7:20pm - 60 minutes power skating session with Erika Hammar. We only get her once a month so please make every effort to attend.

3. Game Saturday 1:30pm @ Pingree vs. our rivals from Triton. This is always a tight, tough game so a great way to start the league schedule.

4. Game Sunday 6:30pm @Haverhill vs. NH East.

5. Also reminder to check your calendars for your assigned Elev802 skills session. For example, some of the boys have it tomorrow night at 8:30pm.

I have game jerseys and socks for anyone who was not at last Friday's practice.

Please let me know if you cannot make any of the above events this week.

Looking forward to a great week, see you tonight!

Also FYI - I went to cancel the game on our calendar but now for some reason it is showing as a practice in Methuen instead. Please disregard. Whoever the webmaster is will have to figure this one out!

Thanks

Bantam 1 - no game this Sunday

I just received a notice that our game scheduled for Sunday has been cancelled due to "issues" at the Methuen Rink. Not sure what that means exactly but bottom line is that there are no games this weekend. We still have practice tonight at 7:40pm, please let me know if you cannot make it.

Thanks

AHA Bantam 1 Update 9.3.21

1. Our initial practice schedule has been posted (and pushed to your phone if you enabled that function). Our first practice is this Wednesday, 9/8, at 7:20PM. The first week we will practice Wednesday and Friday; thereafter we will practice Mondays and Wednesdays. That will be our set schedule until mid-November, then there may be some deviation once the high school season starts.

Also for those players who will be participating in the HSHS program, that practice schedule has been posted and games should be posted shortly.

2. Our VHL parity game schedule has been posted as well. The first game is scheduled to be Sunday, 9/12 at 10:50AM at Methuen vs. the Gladiators (Lewiston, Maine). This will be an early challenge for the boys so they will need to be ready to play hard.

3. Also next week our skills sessions begin at the new Elev802 facility. This schedule is also posted and pushed to your phone (it says "802 Bantam Practice").

4. Please make sure you have done all the registration paperwork required by the end of this weekend. If your player's USA Hockey number is not posted to our system, he can't step on the ice. If you haven't registered with VHL, your player can't play in games. If you have any questions or are unsure if you have done everything, please ask me and I can check.

5. If they have not already done so please ask your boys to check their equipment this weekend so we can be sure everyone is ready to go on Wednesday night - skates sharpened, helmet screws tightened, extra masks and mouth guards packed, sticks taped and all equipment tried on, fitting correctly and packed up in their bags. We have only two practices to get ready for the first game and so can't afford to waste any time. I want the boys to take responsibility for this.

6. Finally we all know this is a crazy time of year between back to school, fall sports and other activities and commitments. That said I expect players to make every effort to attend all practices and games. I encourage you to have them download our schedule onto their phones and work with you to manage their daily time commitments. If they cannot make a practice or game please have them text me (with a parent on the same text message thread please) so that I know and the other coaches and I can plan accordingly.

Have a great holiday weekend and please don't hesitate to reach out with any questions. I am looking forward to seeing everyone next week!
