Greetings LTS and LTP Families,
Welcome! We are delighted you chose Clinton Youth Hockey’s Learn to Skate/Learn to Play program for your child’s early skill development. I am writing today to introduce myself, as well as share some key information.
My name is Brittany Fuller and this is my 4th season as a Clinton Youth Hockey board member and my 6th season with the Clinton Youth Hockey organization. My board positions include Director of Public Relations, Webmaster, and LTS/LTP Program Coordinator. My son, Trent Evans, is a second year Squirt who loves helping with the LTS program and plans to register his 4 month old brother, Emmett, for the program as soon as he’s able to walk. Wish me luck!
Please review the information below and feel free to contact me with any questions (firstname.lastname@example.org).
LTS Attire: Skates, snow pants, jacket, gloves, and a helmet.
LTP Attire: Full hockey gear. Skates, shin guards, socks, athletic cup, hockey pants, elbow pads, chest protector, jersey, gloves, mouth guard, and a helmet.
LTS Head Coach: Connie Yando.
LTP Head Coach: Dan Melie.
(Players from the Clinton varsity hockey team will be on the ice every practice to assist both coaches)
LTS Only- after our first practice, skaters will be split into two groups. Group 1 will work on skills for the first half of practice, then have open skate for the second half. Group 2 will begin practice with open skate, then switch to skills for the second half. Open skate is an important component of the learning process- it gives your child a chance to explore the skills they have been taught during their instruction and have a little fun while they’re doing it! Additionally, there will be an evaluation of the skaters at the 8 week mark. No pressure- the evaluation simply allows us to see the progress the skaters are making, as well as help us identify what areas we need to focus on more. Lastly, parents are not allowed on the ice due to liability- if you have any questions regarding this, I encourage you to contact me.
Our first practice is scheduled for Saturday, November 3rd at 8:00 am. Please arrive 30 minutes early so we can label your skater’s helmet and verify registration.
We are eager to get started and hope your little ones are too!
Brittany Fuller, CCYHA
