The current schedule for spring season will be practices on Thursday nights and Saturdays. The 2010 Wolverines will also play in the LCAHL Gauntlet tournament April 12-14 (Downriver Rinks) and a Big Bear tournament May 10 - 12 (Ann Arbor Ice Cube). We will have 2 sessions with 4D Hockey. The estimated cost for the spring season is $400. This number will be finalized shortly after tryouts and will be due within a week of tryouts for those who make the team.
The 2010 Ann Arbor Wolverines will skate out of the Ann Arbor Ice cube and Yost arena. The spring (April ~ May) season will be used to improve skills, begin the transition from half ice to full ice, and start preparations for the fall season.
On Ice Philosophy:
The 2010 Ann Arbor Wolverines will follow the ADM (American development model) of station skills-based practices including many small area games. A typical ice session will include some type of warm up drill, 3 to 5 stations, and some small area games. As the move to Squirts includes the transition to full ice hockey some positioning and hockey sense will be worked into each practice as needed. For the 2019 – 2020 fall season the 2010 Ann Arbor Wolverines will partner with 4D Hockey Training (https://4dhockey.com/) throughout the season for advanced skill development. All practice plans will be posted for parents and players prior to any practice. Example past 8U practice plans can be found here.
Off Ice Philosophy:
Players should work hard both on and off the ice. At home off-ice training drills will be provided to all players. Throughout the spring and fall seasons there will also be occasional off ice training sessions before or after practice. Off ice sessions will be game based and work on items such as balance, hand eye coordination, flexibility, stamina etc.
As mentioned above, the spring season is really to get prepared for the fall. For the fall the 2010 Ann Arbor Wolverines are scheduled to have two weekday home ices and one weekend home ice per week. One of the weekday home ices will be shared with the 2009 team. This team will play in the Little Caesars travel division based on the play in games. Three tournaments will be planned with one out of town.
Hockey is about having fun and creating good people not just good athletes. Players are expected to give 100% effort, pay attention during explanations, and make every effort to attend all team events. Good sportsmanship, respect for teammates and respect for opponents will be mandatory from all players. Parents are also expected to be good examples of sportsmanship.
