WHAT IS OFFERED
The Winkler Flyer Hockey School offers instruction for improvement on the basics of hockey.

For dryland, a good pair of running shoes and athletic clothing should be worn. The Hockey School will provide allergen free snacks to all participants. Athletes are required to provide their own lunch.

Mike played the 2013-2014 season with the Flyers and has served as an on ice assistant and off ice supervisor at the Hockey School in past years. Jordan spent three years playing for his hometown junior team from the 2007-08 season through 2010 and now teaches at Garden Valley Collegiate. Jordan and Mike are looking forward to sharing their plethora of playing and coaching experience with all of this years participants
FEMALE INSTRUCTORS – Morgan Mullin will return as instructor for the all girls session at the hockey school this year. Morgan is an accomplished high performance player, having played four years with the University of Maine NCAA Div 1. She helped develop the Pembina Valley AAA model for Girls Hockey. As an educator, Morgan provides the Winkler Flyers Hockey School with a professional level of instruction and motivation. Morgan will be assisted by other high quality female assistants who have had success playing hockey in the Pembina Valley. Morgan has grown the female session from 12 players in its first year to 32 in its second and look forward to continued growth this year.
ADDITIONAL SUPERVISORS – As in past seasons, current members of the Winkler Flyers Jr. A Hockey Club will be assisting with the hockey school as assistants and in supervising roles. This will include assisting the head instructors during on ice sessions to ensure an excellent ratio of instructors to players.
The Winkler Flyers Hockey School schedule is based off of total number of registrants. We anticipate that we will be able to form and release a schedule by mid-July. Parents can anticipate their players being at the Winkler Recreation Complex for all their activities for between 5 ½ – 6 hours each day. Younger players are scheduled to start first with older age groups being the last groups to begin their days.
Space is extremely limited. For registration information please contact Steve Mullin via email [email protected]
