2014-15 Squirt and PeeWee B/Select
by posted 08/12/2014
 

The Charlotte Metro Hockey Association and the Jr. Checkers plan to field Travel Select teams at the Squirt and Peewee levels during the 2014-15 season. Programs are contingent upon the number of interested players during Metro League evaluations. There will not be a dedicated full season “B” team at either level due to the CHL merging the Travel Select and Travel B leagues into one league this year.

Each Travel Select team will play in 4 round robin weekends (one at XIC – other 3 TBD) with 3 games per weekend. The teams will also have dedicated practices throughout the season to practice as a group outside of their normal weekly Metro practices.

The cost is $500 in addition to regular Full Season Metro League fees.

If you are interested in participating in the Travel Select program, please contact Andy Gibson – for more information.

Fall/Winter 2014-15 Metro Coaches NEEDED!
by posted 08/05/2014
 

CMHA parents,

 

I hope that all of you have enjoyed another great year in our XIC Metro League. As the Summer session comes to an end we are looking to raise the bar for all of our programs as we head into the Fall/Winter 2014 - 15 season. As a part of our Grow the Game initiative, we would like to expand parent involvement through coaching and other team support opportunities. We rely heavily on both professional and volunteer coaches to guide our kids through drills and maintain order on the ice. Please see the list below of Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) and don’t hesitate to reach out to me with any questions or concerns.

 

XIC Fall/Winter 2014-15 Metro Coaching FAQs

 

Q: I have never played hockey or skated before…can I still coach?

A: Absolutely! Some of our best coaches are parents who have never played and want to share in their child’s hockey experience. We will provide an XIC coaches education program in conjunction with the spring season.

 

 

Q: I have no interest in coaching but want to be involved…are there other ways to help the team?

A: Yes! You can support the team as a team manager, penalty box attendant, time keeper, DJ, etc. There are numerous ways to be involved.

 

 

Q: Is it true that we have to cover the cost of background screens, registrations, etc.?

A: Not at all. We will reimburse you for all costs associated with becoming a registered coach at the end of the season. We require our coaches to be registered through USA Hockey, Safesport certified, background screened, and coaches must obtain a Coaches Education Program certification.

 

 

Q: Hockey has changed from when I was a kid, how do I know what to teach during practice?

A: The XIC staff will always provide you with detailed practice plans before every practice. These plans are produced by USA Hockey and detail each portion of practice so that you can effectively guide kids through practices.

 

 

Q: It looks like a ton of work for the coaches on the ice; will I be expected to lead a group of kids on my first day?

A: Not at all. We hope to have a coach and an assistant coach for every team in the upcoming season. We will pair newer coaches with experienced coaches so that they can learn in a comfortable environment.

 

 

Q: This all sounds great…how do I get involved?

A:  All you need to do is contact Andy Gibson ( ) for more information.

 

Thank you in advance for your time and consideration. We look forward to building our XIC hockey community in the upcoming season. Please seek me out if you have any questions regarding your involvement with the XIC Metro league.

See you on the ice!

Cross Town League For Charlotte Youth Hockey
by posted 05/28/2014
 

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Wednesday, May 28, 2014

 

CROSS TOWN LEAGUE FOR CHARLOTTE YOUTH HOCKEY

The Extreme Ice Center (XIC) and the Pineville Ice House (PIH) are pleased to announce a collaborative effort to enhance youth hockey in the Charlotte Metro area. Effective Fall 2014, both XIC and PIH will offer 12U and 10U house/recreational players the opportunity to participate in the Charlotte Metro League. This league will give players the opportunity to play against different teams and players from the two respective rinks. Games rotations will showcase cross town games where teams will play in true home and away games throughout the course of the season.

Our goal is to provide a positive experience for all youth hockey players. We believe that this format will increase the level of healthy competition, introduce players to different facilities, and create an atmosphere of fun for all participants.

Youth hockey families should also take note that the Carolina Amateur Hockey Association (CAHA), the USA Hockey governing body for ice hockey in North and South Carolina, has passed a new bylaw restricting “Play Ups” which is effective for the 2014 - 15 season.  In accordance with this new policy, no player is allowed to play in an older division after changing member associations. All players must have played for their respective association during the previous Fall/Winter season.   The policy also requires that players must participate in their respective age divisions unless an exception is granted by CAHA and the local association. Players who already participate at an older division will be grandfathered in for the 2014-15 season and can continue playing in their division.

Since the CAHA ruling precludes 2006 birth year players from playing up and playing on travel teams, XIC and PIH will provide a supplemental opportunity for 2006 birth year players who participate in their respective Mite programs. These players can participate on 2006 birth year teams in the 10U Charlotte Metro League. Each 2006 birth year team will only play in Metro League games as a supplement to their age appropriate training offered through their regular 8U practices and cross-ice game nights.

Our goal is to facilitate a transitional program for second year 8U players who will go on to play in the 10U division. Introducing these players to full-ice hockey, positional play, and the rules of hockey will prove beneficial and adequately prepare players for the next level of play.

We feel that the new rulings by CAHA and the cross town opportunities introduced by the rinks create a healthier and fun environment for youth hockey, improve player development, and drive the growth of hockey in Charlotte. Questions regarding the above approaches should be directed to the rink hockey directors.

                                      Andy Gibson - Extreme Ice Center                          Nick Camp - Pineville Ice House

Regional Tier I /AAA Hockey Offering
by posted 04/16/2014
 

Regional Tier I/AAA Program Offering

Team Carolina brings regional program back for the 2014-2015 season

Indian Trail, NC – The Team Carolina Hockey Association is pleased to announce that it will be fielding Tier I/AAA National bound teams at the 14U and 16U age levels for the upcoming 2014-2015 season. Team Carolina was founded on the premise that all players in the Affiliate should have the opportunity to grow and develop into better hockey players without having to move away from home at an early age. As a regional program, it allows players from throughout the Carolinas to participate and develop their game with other players possessing a similar focus on high-level development and competition. The model is unique in that it provides more time during the week for players to participate in activities outside of hockey while establishing an intense combine style weekend format providing on-ice and off-ice training, video sessions, team building, etc.

Team Carolina has established a strong working relationship with the top Tier II programs in the area including the East Coast Eagles and Charlotte Jr. Checkers who are both in favor of and support the regional concept. These programs place a heavy emphasis on player development and over the past several years have had multiple teams compete for and win USA Hockey National Championship titles.

Tryouts will be held in early May and will be open to all players. The 14U team will play an independent schedule of Tier I/AAA tournaments and exhibition games while the 16U team will participate in the USPHL Futures League and play an independent schedule of Tier I/AAA games. At this time weekday skill based practices and mini-camp weekends will be offered in both Charlotte and Raleigh for the 2014-2015 season. Other locations could be added once final rosters are determined.

The Team Carolina website is currently being updated with program details, schedules, costs, coaches, etc. Please visit the website for more details on the program: www.teamcarolina.org.

JR. CHECKERS 12 & UNDER TEAM IS A NATIONAL FINALIST
by posted 04/03/2011
 

The Charlotte Metro Hockey Association’s Charlotte Jr. Checkers 12 & Under “AA” team fell short in their bid for the 2011 USA Hockey Tier II National Championship today, losing the title game in overtime to the Oklahoma Oil Kings in San Jose, CA.

 

The Jr. Checkers went undefeated in the preliminary round with four wins (7-3, 6-3, 3-1 and a 7-6 shootout) and beat the Delaware Ducks 3-1 in the semi-finals to earn their spot in the finals.  In the Championship game, Oklahoma City struck first with a power play goal in the first period, but the Jr. Checker’s Jeremy Reiser tied the score with 1:13 left in the period.  The second period was scoreless until the final 7 seconds when the Jr. Checker’s Kyle Moore bounced a puck off the Oklahoma City’s goaltender to put Charlotte in the lead.  Oklahoma City evened the game at the 7:55 mark of the third period and the two teams headed to a sudden-death overtime period.  Oklahoma City scored the game-winning goal 2 minutes and 54 seconds into the overtime period.

 

This Jr. Checkers team, under the direction of Head Coach Steve Mckirdy, is the first from Charlotte to ever win its league and advance to a USA Hockey championship tournament.  The Jr. Checkers team claimed the Carolinas Hockey League championship by defeating the Raleigh Jr. Hurricanes on March 5th in the final game of the season at the Extreme Ice Center.

 

The Charlotte Metro Hockey Association is proud of the team’s accomplishments and congratulates all of the players, coaches, parents and siblings who’ve made this a successful season.

Producing elite U.S. players starts at bottom
by posted 12/01/2010
 

Buccigross By John Buccigross
ESPN.com


The United States has 24 NHL teams and more than 307 million people within its borders. With those numbers, the U.S. should be producing a healthy number of highly skilled, physically tough hockey players... more than it is today.

The 2000s have had some positive signs for hockey in the U.S. In the past 11 NHL drafts, six of the overall No. 1 picks were Canadian, two were Russian and three were American (Rick DiPietro, Erik Johnson and Patrick Kane). Team USA's excellent play at the Olympics last February was not a fluke. It was reinforcement that they should not have been such big underdogs. The NHL pool of players born in the U.S. is deeper in quality than Russia, Sweden and every other country but mighty Canada. While lacking elite NHL players, the U.S. has produced plenty of really good players. But, it should be producing more. And it should have more elite-level players.

Among the 711 players on the NHL's 2010-11 opening night rosters, 146 of them (20.5 percent) were born in the United States, according to the NHL. This number represents the highest U.S.-born percentage ever on the NHL's early season rosters. In the 1983-84 season, the percentage of American-born players in the NHL was 13 percent. The year before the 2004-05 lockout, the percentage was 15.5 percent.

Twenty-five of the 50 states were represented on opening night, including non-traditional states such as California, Delaware, Maryland, North Carolina and Texas. In addition, more players from the state of New York (23) appeared on rosters than from Russia (22), and the New York state total matched that of Finland.

The number of U.S. born players is growing and should continue to grow. This is why I have been an advocate of hockey in some non-traditional places and am against contraction. I think NHL teams produce more NHL fans, more youth hockey participants and, ultimately, more U.S. born NHL players.

Charlotte Jr. Checkers see extreme growth

November 19, 2010

By Mike Scandura
Special to USAHockey.com

Even though the Charlotte Junior Checkers are located in an area that’s the heart of not only basketball but also NASCAR, they’ve had a major impact on the youth hockey scene in just their second year of existence.

“Even minor league baseball (the International League’s Charlotte Knights) has received more publicity than hockey and they play in (Fort Mill) South Carolina,” said Checkers director of hockey operations Joe Cardarelli. “Now, because there’s an AHL franchise here (the Charlotte Checkers), there’s more in the local news and more of a feeling that this is big-time hockey.

“We absolutely believe this will help us. For example, our 8-and-under program keeps growing. That’s where you want growth and that’s where we’ve had it.”

With a solid foundation in that age group, the Junior Checkers have 318 boys registered for this season.

The Junior Checkers’ Squirt A and AA, Peewee A and AA, Bantam AA, Midget U-16 AA and Midget 18-U AA are travel teams that play in the Carolina Hockey League. House Division teams compete in the Charlotte Metro Hockey League.

“What we did this year is add steps to our program,” Cardarelli said. “Since the Metro League is completely in-house, the kids are on the ice twice a week. The Peewee Select Team is picked from those kids so they get a taste of travel over the course of the season.

“The A teams practice twice a week and our AA teams practice three times a week. But we’ve done some things in order to follow American Development Model principles. The first six Tuesdays of the season were devoted to performance training. We kept all the travel kids on the ice working different stations and playing small-area games. This enabled us to keep them all active.

“We wanted to make sure every kid was getting good skill work, like puck control and shooting,” Cardarelli continued, “for the tactics they would learn in their regular team practices.”

Another major component utilized by the Junior Checkers is the 5 Star Development Program, which is run by the Extreme Ice Center in Indian Trail.

“With the convenience of our Puddle rink, we keep our practices small with a maximum of eight kids ages 6-and-under and two coaches,” Cardarelli said. “They are professional coaches … not just dads volunteering. They’re college or former college players and guys with practical experience who are specifically taught how to coach 6-year-old kids.”

The 5-Star Program consists of the following:

Star 1: Learn to Skate / Snow Buddies.

Star 2: Skates and Sticks, which involves glide turns, stopping, backward stance, stationary puck handling, carrying the puck, stationary forward sweep pass and receiving a pass.

Star 3: Comets, with an emphasis on lateral skating movement, acceleration, two-foot stops, crossovers, tight turns and forehand plus backhand sweep shot.

Star 4: Aces, which involves advanced skating with emphasis on crossover forward start, tight turns with pucks, stopping with the puck and backward-to-forward pivots.

Star 5: Tykes (ages 5 to 7), which involves combining skating and stick skills with games to reinforce hockey concepts and with instruction in lateral movement with the puck, fakes, dekes and scoring.

“This is the key to our system,” Cardarelli said. “With the Tykes, we’re getting them ready to graduate to our Mite cross-ice program. Tykes is an opportunity to get them on the ice twice a week, like Mites, and use some of the same practice drills so they know what to expect.

“The big thing we look at is our retention rate. From our 5 Star Program, 95 percent of the kids who start the six-week program have come back. We must be doing something right because they’re coming back.

“In the summer of 2009 before we started this, we had 32 kids total in our 8-and-under program and only three coaches,” Cardarelli said. “Now, we have 85 kids and 18 coaches. We’re trying to lower the number of players for each coach and follow ADM principles while trying to get as many kids out on the ice as possible.”

Even though the Junior Checkers are essentially still in the neophyte stage, they do have significant objectives.

“Our team objectives are to represent North Carolina in national tournaments,” Cardarelli said. “Our individual player objectives are, through the USA Hockey tryout process, to qualify kids for the Southeast Player Development Festival.”

If numbers are any indication, they’re well on their way to those goals.

GIRLS HOCKEY GROWING AT EXTREME ICE CENTER
by posted 11/16/2010
 
On November 14th, 2010, the Charlotte Metro Hockey Association and the Extreme Ice Center sponsored a free Girls 10 & Under Day at the Rink.  The event was open to all girls aged 10 and younger to help promote the game of hockey in Charlotte.  The event brought in twenty-six girls, aged 7 to 10, some who were experienced hockey players and some new to the sport.
 
These young hockey players took the ice under the direction of Coach Jamie Black with the assistance of Cari Imhoff, Kim Hinton, and Heidi Locastro for a series of drills and small area games.  Those who were new to hockey participated in a Learn-to-Play practice to show them how much fun the game is to play.  Afterward, all of the players skated together in an open skating session.
 
The day was a great success, bringing in over 30 female players, coaches and friends to the rink and meet the goal of the day by promoting the growth of girl’s hockey.  Coach Cari Imhoff on the Girls Hockey Day, “Overall I thought the day was a huge success, there were more girls than we expected and fun was had by all.”  The Charlotte Metro Hockey Association and the Extreme Ice Center look forward to the future of girl’s hockey in Charlotte!
