1 Coach 12 & Under (Peewees) At the 12-and-Under level, coaches should focus on the following age-appropriate concepts and skills so that players enjoy the experience and develop both as hockey players and as young kids. FOCUS POINTS Fun and Engagement Active Practices Age-Appropriate Training Skill Development Body Contact/Body Checking! FUN AND ENGAGEMENT! It s important for coaches to understand that 12-and-Under players are in the Golden Age of Skill Development, which is a crucial time in the long-term development of a player. Coaches should also remember that fun is a key component of youth sports, and that practices and games at the 12-and-Under level must be fun in order for these players to continue working hard to acquire and improve skills.!when coaches are able to deliver the appropriate level of skill development for each player, then players have an excellent opportunity to engage. Engagement occurs when players!are able to successfully execute the targeted skills within an environment that still provides an appropriate challenge level (i.e., not too easy, not too hard). Finding the appropriate balance between success and challenge for each player can be an ongoing challenge for coaches, but providing the optimal blend should always be the goal. Remember, fun and engagement are important factors in the development process. Coaches should never underestimate the importance of each. ACTIVE PRACTICES While a peewee practice shouldn t be as active as a mite practice, coaches must still seek to increase the amount of time players spend participating in drills and small games in each practice session (rather than standing and watching). Players are more!likely to successfully execute skills when they have been given many repetitions in practice. Coaches should consider designing practices with high

2 activity levels each week so that players have ample opportunity to practice the targeted skills. Coaches should also design practice sessions that are not as high in activity level, but instead require the players to go hard for short intervals with appropriate rest to follow each interval. Coaches should strive to find the optimal work-to-rest ratio in any of these practices. Refer to the Player Activity Chart found on the free Mobile Coach App and at admkids.com under Coaches/Repetition for a form to evaluate the developmental opportunities that occur for players in practice and in games. AGE-APPROPRIATE TRAINING Players in the peewee age classification are at a sensitive stage!in their development. Two aspects of their game need special attention: body contact/body checking and skill development. Peewee coaches must be extra careful when determining what is appropriate for 12-and-Under players to learn. On-ice skills and drills must be age-appropriate and coaches should spend considerably more time developing players skills rather than teaching systems. Small games should be used to teach appropriate concepts such as understanding the game. Improving hockey sense takes on a heightened priority at this stage. SKILL DEVELOPMENT Since peewee players are in the Golden Age of Skill Development (ages 8-12), coaches must maximize the skill development that occurs during this time period. While skill development can occur during later years, the opportunity for positively affecting the long-term development of a player is never greater than!in this age period. Players should be allowed to focus on developing all of their hockey skills at this age. The development of these skills takes a tremendous amount of time and the time invested at this age will pay great dividends later. Players who are allowed to spend large amounts of time acquiring and developing skills at this age will have an advantage in later years over many players who did not have this opportunity. BODY CONTACT/BODY CHECKING Although body checking is not allowed in games at the peewee level, coaches should teach 12-and-Under players the proper techniques of making legal body contact with an opponent. Players must learn that body contact should have a purpose!and that purpose is to gain possession of the puck. Skills related to body contact and body checking should be taught in a progression and should be practiced in every session. These skills should include angling, stick position, delivering body contact, and receiving body contact. These skills should be practiced both on and off the ice with the goal of improving the body contact/body checking skills of each player and preparing each player for body checking at the

3 bantam level. Refer to Checking the Right Way for Youth Hockey for information and drills related to body contact and body checking. FOCUS POINTS PRACTICE PLANS & GAMES Prepare practice plan / game strategy at least 1 hour before ice time Review plan with all coaches & practice plan to coaches if time permits Have players stretch as a team for at least 10 minutes before they get dressed o Allow team captain(s) to lead the off-ice stretch without a coach! Rotate captains each game so every player develops leadership skills and experience Review plan with players 10 minutes before practice. Make sure all players are fully focused and dressed o This is the time to establish the coaches authority for the practice session, noting that the players may forget the plan once they hit the ice Incorporate short dynamic stretch during practice after an active on-ice warm-up Spend as little time as possible drawing drills on a coaching board on the ice Review practices after the ice session is over. Make sure all players are fully focused and dressed with helmets off Discuss practice with coaches and make changes as necessary for next practice Develop clear game strategies with coaching staff before games Review game strategies and positions with players in locker room before game Name captains during pre-game team meeting o Rotate captains each game Keep intermission meetings / adjustments simple, concise, and positive Review team and individual play after each game using positive reinforcement o Acknowledge each player after every game (shake players hands, high fives, etc.)

4 Discuss game with coaches and make changes as necessary for next game FOCUS POINTS PLAYER DEVELOPMENT Optimal window for sports skills Learning Fundamental Sports Skills Still focused on individual development and not the outcome Keep the top level as broad as possible o This allows better players greater success and pushes lesser players to emulate Twice a week, prior to practice, spend 45 minutes off-ice working on the Fundamental Movement Skills o Focus on athleticism (ABC s) and hockey skills All levels should receive same number of ice sessions / touches Play multiple sports and engage in activities like soccer, running, gymnastics, swimming, skiing or other activities 50% of the time, engage in fitness through other sports (like lacrosse, baseball, golf, track and field, etc.) 25% of the time and play hockey the other 25%. 4 Ice sessions touches per week o 60 min ice sessions o 7-month training and competition calendar o 105 to 120 ice touches (70/30 ratio) 80 to 90 practices o 2-3 teams per = players o 30 to 35 game days o Local geographic area 15 skaters & 2 goalies per team

5 PRACTICE FOCUS Practices should focus on (percentage of time listed after each): 1. Individual skills (hockey skills and activities) 65% 2. Hockey sense (teaching of concepts through small area!games) 25% 3. Systems (team-play training) 10% While these percentages are approximations, they emphasize that individual skill development remains the highest priority!at this stage, and the majority of practice time should be spent improving skills. The percentages also indicate that hockey sense and concepts are still more important than systems and team-play training at 12-and-Under.12-and-Under SMALL AREA GAMES Hockey sense becomes a more important focus at this age level. Hockey sense includes the ability to understand important age- appropriate hockey concepts and execute tactics related to these concepts. Rather than telling players how to play each situation, small area games provide a great opportunity to let a game teach the desired concept(s). Players learn the desired concept by playing the game within its parameters; it challenges players to find their own solutions, increasing their confidence and retention. Consistent use of these games is important in the development of hockey sense for each player. They should be playing a variety of games, and in each case, figuring the game out on their own. Coaches should not be telling players how to play. The number of players, rules of the game, and size of the game area should be varied with each game. Coaches might also opt to use pucks, balls, or ringette rings to change the dynamic of each game. Small area games are great teaching tools that also create a fun! and competitive environment. Refer to the Small Area Competitive Games Handbook and CD and the Small Area Competitive Games 2 book for age-appropriate small area games. OPTIMAL WINDOWS OF TRAINABILITY In order for players to maximize their ability and reach their potential, it s important for youth coaches to do the right thing!with young athletes at the right time. Focusing on these key components at the appropriate age will give young athletes the best opportunity to achieve their potential as they progress through their teenage years. Researchers have concluded that players in this age classification should spend time developing the following capabilities related to

6 their long-term development: 1. Skill Acquisition and Development (for boys and girls)! Science has shown this is the prime age for children to acquire and develop sport skills, therefore it s known as the Golden Age of Skill Development. 2. Speed (for girls) This is prime time to increase speed by improving the stride length and stride frequency through drills requiring high velocity for shorter intervals of time. 3. Stamina (for girls) This is prime time to improve the endurance of each female athlete (the ability to sustain prolonged physical or mental effort). The factors affecting long-term development differ slightly for boys and girls at this age level. PLAYER KNOWLEDGE Players should know: 1.

15 Basic Structure for 12U Peewee Practices Learn to Train Stage Ages 8-11 females Ages 9-12 males The objective of the Learn to Train stage is to refine overall sport skills and develop sports specific skills. General Description of the Learn to Train stage: This is the period of accelerated learning of coordination and fine motor control and is the critical stage for the acquisition of hockey skills. At this stage participants are developmentally ready to acquire the sports skills that are the cornerstones of all athletic development. In late specialization sports such as ice hockey, early specialization can be detrimental to later stages of skill development and refinement of the fundamental sports skills. Participants should develop a solid base in a variety of sports in each of the physical literacy environments (e.g. swimming, athletics, gymnastics & skiing/skating). Club to club competitions should be introduced but they should not be the main focus of the program. USA Hockey's key focus for this stage: Continue to develop physical literacy Continue to participate in 3 complimentary sports Participants at this stage should learn solid basic skills in skating and puck control There is no need at this stage to specialize at a specific skater position, however goalies may begin to focus on their position Window of Opportunity: The Learn to Train and Train to Train stages are the most important stages in athletic preparation. During these stages we make or break an athlete. 'Sports skills' window of trainability is open during the entire phase Second 'speed' window for girls (ages ) Beginning of window for aerobic 'stamina' (girls 11-14, boys 12+) During practices, introduce a general fitness framework: 1. Warm-up 2. Rhythm and coordination runs both on and off the ice 3. Spatial awareness (jump distance with a number of changes in direction) 4. Rest and recovery (fuel breaks, meals, sleep) 5. Reaction time and agility 6. Focus on skill and execution 7. Cool down with short stretch and muscle rebalance - important because of rapid growth of bones and soft tissues 8. More speed work 9. Explosive strength in upper and low body through jumping and gymnastic maneuvers 10. Develop general lower body and core stability 11. More stretching at the end of training 12. Monitor the volume, intensity, quality and duration of training Off-Ice recommendations Develop strength - using exercises that incorporate the player's own body weight, as well as medicine balls and Swiss balls

16 Continue to develop endurance through small area games and relays and develop flexibility through exercises Speed can be developed by using activities that focus on agility, quickness and change of direction - short duration, less than 5 seconds At this stage it is important to create an environment where participants want to play ice hockey. Practices must be varied, interesting and fun so they will want to continue. It is important to build interest in our sport, self confidence and an enjoyment of performing. Coaching Considerations Coaches must be cognizant that this is the critical stage for sports skill acquisition. Players must be exposed to quality skill demonstrations as this creates a mental picture for them to emulate. Players must practice a high volume of skills training at a reduced intensity in order to achieve successful repetitions. As the success rate increases, intensity can increase, however, coaches must understand that performing skills incorrectly at a high rate of speed will only reinforce poor skills through this stage. Coaches must understand that skill acquisition is reduced as the fatigue level increases Coaches must manage the flow of information to their players. Limit instruction to 3 or 4 key points maximum, as additional information will not be processed by the athletes. Provide opportunities for the players to execute their skills in game situations. Players must begin to gain an understanding of how skills and tactics are applied within different playing situations. Provide opportunities for repeated decision making in practice. Solutions to common tactical situations must be developed. Coaches must provide concise, specific feedback to the athletes. Tell them what you want done, not what not to do. Monitor players growth for the onset of growth spurt, especially at the Peewee level. Introduce interval training Technical Development: Ensure motor learning issues are adopted into coaching practice This is the window of optimal trainability for peak skill development of core hockey skills Emphasis is placed upon refining skating and puck control skills throughout the stage with a clear focus on correct technical execution o Agility in skating skills with and without the puck o Refining edge control skills for balance and coordination o Combine the refined skating skills with puck control skills (multi-tasking) o Attacking skills, one-on-one and one-on-two or more defenders (one-on-three) Use small area games to applying core skills in decision-making situations Added emphasis on passing and receiving skills should be incorporated at the 12 and Under (Peewee) level with special concentration on receiving skills Added emphasis on shooting and scoring skills, including shooting off a pass (one timing the puck) Body contact and angling basics should be refined at 10 & Under (Squirt) Body checking skills are introduced at 12 & Under (Peewee) including the ability to deliver a check as well as receive a check (it is important not to overemphasize checking as to detract from core hockey skills development) Offensive body positioning and puck protection skills Deception skills should be incorporated in all facets of the player's development o Skating: change of pace, change of direction, spins

17 o puck control: fakes and dekes on goalie o passing: look off pass receiver, fake pass o shooting: shoot off either foot, cadence - shoot in stride, camouflage - screen shots and looking off shot, fake shot Tactical Skills: Continue to encourage unstructured play at 10 & Under (Squirt), emphasis should be on competing at the puck, winning one-on-one battles and loose puck races Introduce the four game situation roles; puck carrier, offensive support player, defender at the puck, defender away from the puck Develop basic situational role knowledge and experience in small area game play and specific situational drills Applying core skills in basic hockey decision making situations At 12 & Under basic team systems can be introduced, however the on-ice time spent should be minimal as to continue to take advantage of the skill development window of trainability Introduce elements of coordinated attacks, two-on-one, two-on-two, three-on-two, two-on-three Encourage vocal communication between players both offensively and defensively Reinforcement of ethics and rules (e.g. no hitting from behind) Ancillary Skills: At this stage, participants should understand the importance of warm-up and cool-down, hydration and of the proper fit and use of equipment Off-season participation in 2-3 other sports (soccer, lacrosse, gymnastics, skating, tumbling) is recommended to develop core strength and balance Players should be able to dress themselves in their hockey gear and tighten their own skates at 10 & Under (Squirt) Participants should be learning how to listen to and follow instructions
