Fall Hockey 5's

We are once again running Hockey 5s, an explosive short format played with boards on pitches that are half or quarter size.  The format is fast, furious and attractive to young players because of its speed and skill development.  Hockey 5’s is the format used in the Youth Olympics and the fast-paced games creates an exciting and technically demanding game. 
 
Players attend one skills session and one game session per week. This combination is designed to teach skills and then provide game-time to allow players to test their skills against their peers in a match environment.   Program features include:
  • 60-90 minute weekly practice
  • Program is led by professional club coaches
  • Hockey 5’s games give a new dimension to training, forcing technical precision, speed and aerobic strength
  • The Hockey 5’s field has boards around the field. This creates good spatial awareness and the use of angles and rebounds to eliminate defenders.
  • Players are not assigned to teams and we will not be taking friend requests

It is highly recommended that all players register for Skills + Games to ensure they benefit from full skills development and participation.
