2000 Macomb Mavericks Bantam AA Outline


My program focuses on developing the individual while building a foundation for a successful team.  Effort, respect, and responsibility are what I ask from my players.  Structure, skill, teamwork and discipline are the concepts that will drive every practice.

Mentoring Program

Utica Eisenhower – Robert Hall

*The Eisenhower H.S. hockey program has agreed to work with my team by supplying coaches and players to run some practices.  They will run drills and system play from their program.  This is a good way to introduce what will be expected of a player to play at the H.S. level*
