Spring Elite Program

Rockets Spring Elite Program

Rockets Elite Spring Team & Program Information

 Program Goal:

A nine-week program will be provided for highly skilled players to develop over the spring hockey season. We will be conducting tryouts for this elite program. Our selected Rockets coaches will conduct high tempo skill practices as well as off-ice training sessions that will push players to become the best players they can be.  Off-ice sessions will be held at the new Rockets Training Facility. 

Practices will be limited to 1-3 times per week to allow players to develop athleticism through other sports. Some weekend practices will be scheduled throughout the spring season for scrimmages. Additionally, some skaters will be selected for our tournament teams.  This may include up to two tournaments (one in town and one out of town).
