To give our coaches the resources necessary to build a proper practice and utilize all opportunities to develop.

Vision: A foundation for long term success: We are here to help the NRYHA members be well prepared in the years ahead. What we are teaching today is meant to assist our players over the next 10 years as they move through all levels. We are focusing on drills that will build fundamental skills clearing the way for practices focused on team oriented systems at higher levels of hockey. Skills First!!!

Focus: Keep players loving the game by giving it back to THEM. Skill Development-drill in fundamentals so each player has a solid foundation. We must be conducted to accommodate the number of new players who wish to play hockey, and reduce the number who become disenchanted and drop out.
