Based on parent input from our parent’s night we will use this first practice as a second opportunity to see if players are correctly placed in IP 1 (Beginning usually younger skaters) or IP2 (most 6 year olds and those who have mastered some skating ability) .It is not essential for all six year olds to be in IP. I will be there all day (9 hours!) to try to see all the players.Moving players is Karen Russell’s decision. No matter what program your kids are part of they will learn lots. 

I will post the practice outline this weekend so parents can see what we plan to do. The intent of this blog is to offer an opportunity for parents to see what we are planning to do each week. On WordPress you can click “follow” and it will send you an email every time I post a new entry.

For those parents of IP2 players please make sure their skates are sharp, mouth guards and neck guards are ready and that every player has a water bottler with their name on it. I will post more on hydration as a separate post.

I am really excited about meeting your kids – and so are my 10 instructors….I promise they will learn lots and have a ton of fun!
