That time of year again... Travel team tryouts for the 2015-16 CBHL season will be held at the Bowie rink from April 25-30. The exact times will be set next week and posted immediately after. Check back for additional information as it becomes available. If you have any questions please direct them to Larry Robinson, VP/Travel for the club.
The Bowie Hockey Club will be running a spring hockey program again this year. We had a successful year last year and hope to build on it. We also want to be responsive to your needs and also keep the program fees reasonable. We will use the spring hockey program as a run-up to travel tryouts and give players a chance to improve their skills, skating, and team concepts. It will also give travel and rec coaches a chance to work with players and get to know them a little better. We are moving the program to Bowie as the rink is a great partner for us and we want to make it easy for players to attend. Please follow this link for registration. As a reminder, registrations are by birth year. Teams will be selected by the coaching staff. Here is the full plan for Spring Hockey at Bowie;
·Practices and Skills Sessions will be at Bowie on Saturdays, Sundays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, and some Fridays from March 28-April 19. The pre-tryout clinic runs from April 20-23. Tryouts will be immediately after this clinic.
·We will continue to emphasize team concepts during practice. In addition, spring hockey will be skating and skill-focused in order to prepare players for, not only games, but tryouts as well.
·We will play in a local tournament the first week of May - the Big Bear Tournament at Laurel May 1-3. Mites will play either games against local teams or a local tournament (TBD). Going away for a tournament is an option that teams and coaches can do on their own.
·We will have goaltending instruction again this year.
·Dan Houck will lead the skills sessions and many of the practices. We will rely on our cadre of coaches and may include other instructors as well.
·We will include special instruction for Mites transitioning to Squirt.
·We will include checking instruction for PeeWees transitioning to Bantam.
