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:
*    MITES - On 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 Basic Program:

6U - 8U Mite Ultimate Program:

After a tremendously successful 2017/2018 season, our 8U program will continue to offer 2 skills sessions per week as well as templated Saturday
morning cross ice games.  Player's will be split into 4 equal teams of 8 players.  The skills sessions will be run by a staff of professional coaches
and skills coaches to push the young players while ensuring they are having fun and developing.


10U Squirt Basic Program:
Skill Session Days:
 Monday at 5:40pm
Games:  Saturday or Sundays - TBD

The 10U division which plays their games within the Atlanta Youth Hockey League (AYHL) returns from an extremely successful season.
Last season, the Fire development fielded 3 teams & this season looks to have 4 teams.  The age category will have
their skill sessions on Monday nights, which will be run by the Fire Professional hockey development staff.  Off of this age category, we will also
field an All-Star level team, which will give players who want the extra development and games, a chance to compete in supplemental
practices and games as well as a few tournaments away from their league play.


12U Peewee Basic Program:
Skill Session Days: 
Wednesdays at 5:40pm
Games:  Saturdays or Sundays - TBD

The 12U division will once again compete in the AYHL hockey league and have their skills night on Wednesday nights with the Fire professional
development staff.  Last year the age category fielded 2 teams and e will look for the same targeted teams this upcoming season. 
The 12U will also field an All-Star level team, which will give the top player's supplemental games and ice time to help speed up their
 skills and hockey development.


14U Bantam Basic Program:
Team Practices:
 Fridays at 7:00pm
Games:  Saturday or Sunday games - TBD

Our 14U hockey league will compete in the AYHL hockey league and will have their team skates on Friday nights as well as games which will
fluctuate times during the weekends.


High School Non Check Division
Games Only: 
Fridays, Saturdays or Sundays - TBD

This year, with multiple players moving up from the 14U division, we will now field a High School Non Check hockey team as well, which will
be a game only option for players' birth years 2001 - 2004.  This is a great supplement for players who compete in the GSHL high school league,
to get extra hockey games in on Fridays and Saturdays to stay sharp for their teams season.
