Little Snipers Program Description

Little Snipers 2Line Hockey Program Format

League Concept
The ECI Little Snipers 2Line Program was designed to give the players that were not selected for our Little Pros AAA teams maximum development in a fun environment in the short 5-week spring program. Each team will have 10 players and 1 goaltender per team, which gives the players a significant amount of exposure to coaches’ feedback and will get them on the ice every second shift to work on the skills they have practiced. 
 
The Program
The 10 hours of development sessions (split up into 2 sessions per week) will be on half ice surfaces to ensure the kids get maximum skill development and feedback. Each session, they will have 30-40 minutes of skill development, working on skating, puck control, passing, shooting and decision making skills, then they will play a 2line hockey game (Cross Ice or Full Ice) for the remainder of the session!
 
The Final 2line Spring Showdown Tournament will have each team playing 4-6 full ice games in Moncton May 13-14 to finish off the season with lots of fun!
 
The ice sessions are structured to give these Little Snipers a great balance of skill development and fun to ensure they develop their skills properly and also develop a passion for the game of hockey!
 
 To make things as competitive as possible, we will be drafting the teams.
