Steelheads offer Coaching Clinic

As we kick off the 2017-18 hockey season, the OHL Eastern Conference Champion Mississauga Steelheads are looking for local coaches interested in attending our upcoming Coaching Clinic on October 25th, 2017 from 6:30pm to 9:30pm at the Hershey Centre. We are lucky to have one of the top coaching staffs in the OHL lead by Stanley Cup winner, James Richmond, and are always looking to help continue the growth of minor hockey coaches and players in our community.

The hockey season goes by way too quickly, so getting off to a quick start is important for coaches to get the most out of their players as they progress through the season and into the playoffs. During the clinic our coaches will breakdown their day-to-day roles and routines, give insight into their player evaluation and roster design, offer advice for practice planning and time management, and will open the floor to answer any specific questions your may have.

There are no costs associated with the clinic so if you are interested, or know of other coaches that would be interested in this valuable development opportunity, you can reach me (Brandon Reischl) at 905-502-7788 ext. 238 or by email at breischl@mississaugasteelheads.com.

Thank you and good luck this year.

Novice & Atom: Program Changes to Enhance Player Development

The Mississauga Hockey League, in conjunction with its’ six Area Association partners, is pleased to announce that it is introducing a new program to strengthen player development at the Novice and Atom age levels.

Starting in September we will be combining:

  • Major & Minor Novice into one age division (7 & 8 year olds)
  • Major & Minor Atom into one age division (8 & 9 year olds)

Note that these changes will NOT affect our Rep (i.e. Gold and “A”) level teams.

A Proven Concept

While the Novice and Atom combined age programs are new, the concept has already been proven both across Canada and within the MHL. Coaches and Convenors have grouped players with equivalent skill levels in certain age groups for many years.  The results have been invaluable in terms of the benefit to whole teams and also individual players.  Most jurisdictions within Hockey Canada currently combine age groups to enhance player development.

Player Benefits

The introduction of this program will provide a larger pool of players for the Convening Committee. This means several positive deliverables for your child’s hockey development, including:

  • Increase the opportunity to place the player with like-skilled players
  • Create greater diversity in opponents than what currently exists
  • Increase division size (i.e. Red, White, Blue, Green) to provide more balanced competition
  • Teams will now be comprised of players grouped at appropriate skill levels rather than based solely on age specific requirements
  • Teams will be convened into divisions of equivalent competition as teams will play against opponents with a similar skill level

Entering Tournaments

Teams will be entered into tournaments based upon the oldest-aged players on the team. For example, a team of major and minor Atoms would enter the Atom division of the tournament.

Success and Future Development

The MHL is always striving to improve its product offering by looking at all programs in a holistic manner. As these combined aged programs roll out in the fall we will monitor and analyze the results.  The success of this program may see the implementation of this approach in older age groups in the future.

If you have any questions or require further information about this program please contact the MHL Office, your Area Association, your Coach, or your Convenor.
