The Vision:
The Fire House Development Hockey Program, in conjunction with The Cooler Learn To Play Hockey Program, envisions a multi layered skill development approach for all youth hockey players starting at the grass roots level.  Capitalizing on the key skills acquirement years (9 - 12), the Program is designed to get the young players more ice and puck touches.  Implementing professionally structured practices and skill development ice sessions, our goal is to help the players reach their talent ceiling.

Key Concepts of the Program:
*    More ice touches (3 touches per week including 2 skill practices and 1 game)
*    Professionally structured practices and skill development sessions
*    Emphasis on individual skills along with the introduction of team play
*    A challenging environment yet a fun atmosphere with positive feedback to players

6U - 8U Mite Program:
Skill Development Days:
 Tuesdays and Thursdays at 5:10pm
Cross Ice Games:  Saturday mornings at 8:00am

This age category is critical to the success of any hockey program.  The program is designed to have the players moving, skating, touching pucks, playing games and enjoying the game.  Understanding how young players think is the key to maximizing their ice time with fun and challenging drills.  Skills stations will best help them achieve basic and fine-tuned motor skills.  Remembering that hockey is the only sport where a young player has to completely learn how to balance on skates before doing anything else.  Our main focus is to create an atmosphere of learning the game in a fun and positive setting.

10U Squirt Program:
Skill Development Days:
 Mondays and Wednesdays at 5:40pm
Squirt Games:  Saturday mornings at 9:30am or 10:45am

This is the start of the optimal years of skill acquirement for all young hockey players.  The goal is to push the players to acquire all the necessary skills to be a successful player moving forward into their teen years.  Building off the basics, they will have acquired in the Mite Program, those skills are now being built on alongside the understanding of the game.  Using small area games and lots of repetition to build muscle memory, players will continue to refine their skills.

12U Peewee Program:
Skill Development Days: 
Mondays and Wednesdays at 5:40pm
Peewee Games:  Saturdays at 5:30pm or 6:45pm

This is the start of the optimal years of skill acquirement for all young hockey players.  the goal is to push the players to acquire all the necessary skills to be a successful player moving forward into their teen years.  Building off the basics, they will have acquired in the Mite Program, those skills are now being built on alongside the understanding of the game.  We will start implementing a more structured environment for the players, such as a fore-check understanding, power-play and penalty kill intro and learning how to play the ultimate team game.  Using small area games and lots of repetition to build muscle memory, players will continue to refine their skills.

14U Bantam Program:
Team Practices:
 Fridays at 7:00pm
Bantam Games:  Saturdays - Time to be determined.

The 14U hockey program will continue to give players an avenue to play hockey for fun in a competitive non travel setting.  The teams will receive one hockey practice on Friday nights as well as play games over the weekend, but typically on Saturday afternoons.  This Program has the possibility to be coupled with a non-check High School Hockey League which will provide players with supplemental games as well as competition without having to commit to a travel level schedule.  The Fire Development Program is a proud member of the AYHL Hockey League, started in 2013 by 3 programs and has now expanded to 4 programs within the city of Atlanta.
