WELCOME FROM THE HOCKEY DIRECTOR

Hello New and Old 8U Parents,

 

WELCOME ABOARD TO EVERYONE!  I AM HOPING EVERYONE IS ENJOYING THEIR SUMMER!

 

I am sending this email to the Cleveland Barons/Strongsville 8U Program for the 2018-2019 season.  I am the hockey director, Bob Krosky and I wanted to welcome each of you to the program. 

Over the next month you will be receiving a series of correspondence emails discussing the season and important dates to remember.  I speak on behalf of our new combined program and we are very excited at the opportunity for all the players, parents, and coaches.  My boys started and played for years in the Strongsville Youth Hockey Association.  I also was the original mite director for the first inaugural season of SYHC back in 2002 and was the director for another 3 years. My boys then played for the Cleveland Barons Organization to where I saw the benefits of each program.   This exciting adventure will help all players to gain the strengths and benefits of each organization.    We are also fortunate enough to have some very experienced coaches signed up already to assist with the mite program.  We have several ex-Baron Players, past mite/8U coaches and prior professional players that will be assisting this season.  We also have some newer coaches that have gone through the USA hockey credentialing and are there to help our kids.  We like to keep a low player to coach ratio so the kids get more individualized attention.  The goal is to have 2 coaches working at each station which will usually only have 6 players or less to get the ratio at 3:1.  If you are interested in coaching, please reach out to me to discuss. 

 

SAVE THE DATE:

The week of August 27th will start the season.

 

We will have evaluation skates over the two week period of time.  There will be an email sent out that will tell you what day and time you should bring your child.  We will break up the first 3 days alphabetically and then the next 6 days by birth year.  This will give us the opportunity to watch the kids play in different situations.  We will follow the ADM model of placing the kids in 6 stations and we will work on different skill sets such as skating, shooting, passing, stickhandling, and also some competitive situation and fun play. 

 

If you have any questions before the next email, please contact me at rkrosky@wowway.com

 

Regards,

 

Bob Krosky
