The Bison's Pee Wee MOHL Team D coached with Joe Pelino participated in the Pittsburgh Three Rivers Tournament on November 6-8th. They swept their division with a 5 to 1 win, 5 to 0 win and a late come from behind win in the third game 2 to 1.
Coach Pelino says, "Unfortunately, we had a few bad breaks and lost in the Championship game to place 2nd. I am very proud of these boys. They acted like a team. I saw leaders step up and a lot of unselfish acts to help us out."
Starting Monday April 7th we embark on a new chapter for Bison Hockey. We are going to intensify our commitment to skill development. We are going to provide more assistance to our coaches. We are going to design our teaching to be more age appropriate and tailored to the particular skill levels of our players at each age increment.
The hiring of Shelley Looney as Hockey Director is a pivotal step in the new direction we are taking. Shelley will be on the ice all week during our Spring Tryouts. Shelley is excited to get going and meet the players in our program
We want to encourage every player to introduce themselves to Shelley when they step on the ice for tryouts.
In the coming months, as we prepare for next season Shelley will be busy developing our curriculum, at each age level. Shelley and all of our volunteer coaches will work closely to coordinate the integration of skills into all team practices. Along with our coaches, Bison Hockey will also be sure to educate our players and parents on the upcoming season. We intend to be very clear in communicating our expectations for everyone involved in our program next season.
Enrollments at Bison Hockey today exceed 400 players, ranging from ages 3-18. That represents a wide range of player needs & capacity. Our goal is to help develop our players so they can increase their skating skills and begin to enjoy the great game of hockey as they become stronger and more capable on the ice.
See you at the rink.
