Stick Handling Tips and Drills
One of the most important stickhandling basics is to always keep your head up. You've got to be able to be aware of what's happening around you on the ice without looking at the puck. If you're staring at the puck while stickhandling, you're likely to be checked by somebody you didn't even know was near you.
A second tip in stickhandling is to use 'soft hands'. What this means is to not grip the stick too tightly. Try to control the puck gently so you don't over handle it. Think of the puck as an egg, and try not to break the shell.
The shorter your stick, the easier it will be to bring your upper arm across your you body. Your stick should be around chin level when on skates, or nose level when off the ice.
When practicing your stickhandling, try to reach out as far as possible with the puck on both sides of your body. Try to use just your upper hand on your backhand side. This will help you when trying to maneuver around other players on the ice.
The adult season is now into the first quarter of the regular season. Most teams had only a few games in the month of February due to the Super Bowl break as well as the President’s day weekend break. From here on out the remainder of the season is going to have a much more regular
It is great to see new players topping the charts of the scoring leaders as opposed to the previous seasons. We have quite a few new players this season and we want to keep our league growing. It is great to have most divisions with at least 6 teams per division to make for great competition throughout the season.
We have openings in every division so if you are interested in playing please contact our Hockey Director at (949) 683-8677 or email Matt
Dunaev at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information on joining our Adult hockey league.
Adult Hockey Clinic:

The winter season is also coming to an end. There is going to be another break on the weekend of March 9-10 for the SCAHA playoffs. Our season will now end on March 31 as opposed to March 24. The new schedule will be released shortly and updated online as well.
We would like to remind everyone that if you are interested in joining a SCAHA team next season, it is imperative to stay on the ice as much as possible and continue progressing your skills at in house and the upcoming spring clinics. More information on the spring clinics will be available soon.
The Hockey Academy is developing players as it has always and is encouraging players to continue to grow through the system. Although the coaches are watching to see which players are ready to move to in house, don’t hesitate to ask a coach if your superstar feels like they are ready to pushed to the next level.
There will be a schedule change for March 10 to 2:45pm-3:45pm. This is only a one time change for this date only.
