Pre-Season

Pre-Season

Welcome to the U16A Raptors! It’s time to take a break from hockey, recharge, and enjoy your summer, but it’s also the best time to get your mind and body ready for next season.

You may find that the ways we do things are a little different than teams you’ve been on in the past. We will be sharing a lot of information digitally; we use TeamSnap for schedules, rosters, and other logistical details, and we will use this site to share supplemental training materials. (See more about this site)

During the season, we will focus a lot of attention to improving your mindset so that you’re focused on growth, positivity, and strength. We will talk a lot about how the brain works, the importance of building good habits, and much more. So you’ll see some messaging over the summer that begins to raise these ideas as well.

And lastly, even though we want you to take a break, we still want you to be in good shape for camp. Starting after Memorial Day, we want you to work in a 20-minute workout a few days a week that should get you ready!
