Let's Paint the Parade RED!
Attention Winnetka and Winfield Hockey Players:
We will once again help promote our Hockey Clubs by participating in the Winnetka 4th of July Parade. However, instead of wearing your Winnetka or Winfield jersey, we ask that you wear your RED BLACKHAWK jersey in celebration of their Stanley Cup Championship. We will have extras available if your child needs one. We will carry the cup (OK, not the real cup!) .
When: July 4th
Meet on Elm Street: look for the Zamboni!
Wear your rollerblades or gym shoes
Bring a hockey stick
The 5,000 Puck Challenge: Are you up to it?
Do you ever think “I wish I had picked that corner on that shot?” Do ever think “I wish I could shoot the puck like Jonathan Toews or Patrick Kane?” Do you ever think “I wish my team scored more goals?”
This summer the Winnetka and Winfield Clubs are encouraging all our players to take the summer to work on the accuracy, technique and speed of your shot in our 5,000 Puck Challenge. The program was designed by the Ontario Minor Hockey Association and has become a staple of many programs in the province. It’s easy, fun, and you will see the results each time you play!
How well do you think your shot would improve if you were to take 5000 shots over a 10-week period?
Come Practice Your Shooting This Summer at the Winnetka Ice Arena
This summer, the Winnetka and Winfield Hockey Club's will be participating in The 5,000 Puck Challenge. We will have some exciting prizes and awards for our player's that participate.Participation information will be available shortly along with tracking sheets and instructional videos on proper technique.
Our goal is that our participants become better shooters. When you become better shooters, you score more goals. When you score more goals, your team will be more succesful.
Shooting is a skill of repetition. There are no short cuts....however with practice every child can improve their shooting. And it's fun and you can shoot lots of pucks in a 30 minute period.
This summer we will have shooting stations with practice pucks set up on the floor at the Winnetka for you to practice. Grab a friend and come on by....it's FREE!
Dates: June 15th-July 22nd
