“A summer hockey development program with a difference!”


The Lancaster Phoenix Summer Selects is a short, intense hockey development program designed to enhance both offensive and defensive team play, taught in an age-appropriate manner by former professional hockey coaches.  The program emphasis will be to teach players positional responsibilities, proper reads and appropriate reactions in all three zones of the ice within a team framework.  Players will be challenged to “learn and think the game.”    

The program is offered to players at the Squirt (2008/2009), Peewee (2006/2007), and Bantam (2004/2005) age levels.  A team of no more than 16 skaters and 2 goaltenders will be selected at each age level from an on-ice evaluation held in accordance with AAHA tryout dates for spring/summer teams.  Teams will have six one-hour on-ice training sessions enhanced with classroom instruction utilizing professional hockey video.  Each team will compete in two tournaments at a skill-appropriate level.  Five of the training sessions will take place preceding the tournaments with the final session held the week between tournaments.  Players will receive a team play handbook summarizing program content.
