U8 Spitfire Program Mission Statement:
To provide a FUN, spirited, learning environment that allows our dedicated coaching staff the opportunity to instill the necessary core, fundamental hockey skills needed to successfully prepare them to play the game of hockey to the best of their ability.
This program is led by 1998 Olympic Gold Medalist, Vicki Movsessian Lamoriello and U8 Spitfire Coordinator, former NHL player Joe Hulbig. Our USA Hockey certified staff will work hard to assure the girls are always having fun and motivated to develop their skills. Practice content is dedicated to skating, edge work, handling the puck and breaking into small groups.
Our U8 teams will skate 3-4 times per week from September through March. Each team will also participate in a rotation of off-ice instruction. This is not a weekly event, as we feel it is very important for all of our athletes to balance hockey, other sports interests, school and family activities.
U8 Major - 2 practices, 1 skill session, min 1 game per week, participation in jamborees
. Cost $1,495.
U8 Minor - 2 practices, min 1 game per week, participation in jamborees. Cost $1,295.
U6/U8 Development - 8 Weeks of skating instruction by a professional figure skating coach then 1 practice, 1 cross ice session per week. Cost $695
Additional teams will be added based on numbers, interest and level of play. Our goal is to place every player.
U8 Teams will compete in NEGHL Jamboees (New England Girls Hockey League), some teams in SNEHC (RIAHA/ Southern NE Hockey Conference Mite League at the appropriate Mite A,B,or C level), Knights League at Foxboro and compete in several Jamborees organized by the Spitfires and other NEGHL teams.
If spots are available, players will be added throughout the summer and may be added anytime during the season.
