Typical Week in Mooredale Outdoor Hockey
Intro to Hockey
Our Intro to Hockey division focuses on introducing our U6 and U7 players to the basics and fundamentals of hockey in an environment that is fun, relaxed, and inclusive. Sessions will focus on developing proper skating techniques and puck handling skills, and will be led by our Hockey Technical Staff. Players will have two 45-minute long session on Wednesday and Thursday evenings.
Players in this division will have one practice (45 minutes) and one game (45 minutes) per week. This season, our U10s will be playing a Cross-Ice format for their games. This will involve dividing the ice into smaller sections for game play (e.g. 3-on-3 games). As a result, players will have more opportunities to touch and handle the puck, and will develop a better feel for the spot, before they progress to full ice game play.
Players in these divisions will have one practice (60 minutes) and one game (60 minutes) during the week. The practice sessions will be run by our Hockey Technical Staff and assisted by our Jr. Coaches. The emphasis will be on development the fundamental skills and building onto them by introducing more advanced skills.
New to Mooredale Hockey is a division for 16 and up players. There will be games held on Wednesday 7:45-8:45PM. This league is welcome to Mooredale Alumni, Parents or anyone else looking for casual hockey games.

The first week of the hockey season (beginning of December) are evaluation weeks. Players are put through drills and games that allow our coaches to evaluate the players and create player ratings. These ratings are for our internal use only – we use them to do our best and create balanced divisions so games can be competitive and fun for all. We encourage all players to attend so that we can have a good picture of the divisions before we begin the rostering process.
Evaluation Week Schedule will be announced closer to the season start.
For the U10, U12 & U15 age divisions, players will be split into 2 groups for the evaluation weeks. You will receive an email in the week before Evaluations begin indicating which group your child has been assigned to.
Our Hockey Technical Staff members have a great deal of experience playing and coaching at high levels. They will be on hand during all practices to run our players through drills and games, and pass on their knowledge.
Our volunteer coaches are a key part of our Outdoor Hockey program, and we are always looking for more individuals to help us out. If you’re interested in coaching in the league this year, make sure to select the option when registering your child, or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
