Tryouts are coming fast!!

FAHA is trying a new tryout procedure for Tier 3 teams and we want to make you are aware of it.

Before tryouts you will need to register on the Hockey Club Fairbanks website( your FAHA log in and password should work for you to access that account.  
The tryouts will be a duel tryout with Tier 2 this year.  Coaches will evaluate everyone on the ice at the same time.  
After tryouts Tier 2 and Tier 3 coaches will talk to players that are chosen for the Tier 2 or Tier 3 teams.   It is always your decision as to what team your player will play on.
The tryout fee is 75.00 this year.  If you are chosen for a Tier 3 team your player account will be credited 40.00.  Essentially this means that the fee for Tier 3 tryouts have not increased from the 35.00 that they have always been.
If you are not chosen for or you choose to not participate on a Tier 2 or Tier 3 team your player account will be credited 40.00 also.  
The tryout schedule is below! 

Tier 4 assessments  for U10 thru U14(Squirts thru Bantams) will be August 27-28, 2016 at the Big Dipper. Times will be posted on the Hockey Club Fairbanks website soon.  There is no fee for Tier 4 assessments.

Hey Coach!

Coaching Philosophy with Penn State's Guy Gadowsky 

(by Jamie MacDonald)

So, the puck has dropped. Now what?...

Hey coach!
Did you ever stop and think about the qualities of a good coach or an exceptional coach? As we start another hockey season, stop and think about the qualities of those good or great coaches that you had or know. Here are three links to articles about "What makes a good coach?"

USA Hockey ADM

The American Development Model (ADM) provides age-appropriate guidelines and curriculum to hockey associations across America to help more kids play, love and excel in hockey. Brought to you by USA Hockey, in partnership with the NHL.

ADM Overview
What’s wrong with where we’re going?

For starters, many athletes spend too much time traveling, competing and recovering from competition and not enough time preparing for it. Second, there is too heavy a focus on the result rather than the performance. This attitude leads to long-term failure, as coaches forgo the development of skills to focus on specific game tactics. And third, too many athletes are specializing too early on. An early focus on just one or two sports often leads to injuries, burnout and capping athletic potential.
