Troy Albany Jr. Engineers

The goal of the Jr. Engineers 8u Program is to build a love of the sport with children under the age of eight while developing the fundamentals of the sport. The program is comprised of four levels - Learn to Skate, Learn to Play, Advanced Cross Ice Mites and Travel Mites. Each level focuses on overall player development while providing the opportunity for each child to enhance his or her skills in a positive environment, creating an enjoyable experience for the entire family.

Learn to Skate

This is the first step in a player's development and is for children as young as 3 years old who have never skated before or who have limited skating experience. The program focuses on basic skating skills and is designed to be fun and build confidence on the ice. It will provide the fundamentals to transition into the Learn to Play program.

Learn to Play

The Learn to Play program is designed for players ages 5-8 years old with some skating experience. Players will work on improving their skating and learn more about the game of hockey. Each session focuses on skating, puck skills, hockey fundamentals and exciting, min-games in the cross-ice format. The program runs for 18 weeks and families can choose to participate in two or three days per week.

Advanced Cross Ice Mites

The Advanced Cross Ice Mites (ACIM) program is for players 5-8 years old that have solid skating skills and are ready for more advanced skating and hockey skills. Focus is on skating skills, stick handling, passing, shooting and cross-ice game play with the goal of preparing players for full ice games in the 10U season. The program is 3 days a week for 20 weeks, 2 are skills sessions and the other is cross-ice game play beginning in October.
