Skill Development 2 (SD2)
SD2 is Guelph Minor Hockey's on-ice program for U7 hockey players (6 year old players).
In SD2, the focus is on advancing the skating fundamentals learned in SD1 and further enhancing players' skating abilities.
No hockey experience is required, but some skating experience is recommended.
Small Area Games (SAGs) are used to create a fun and interactive learning environment to develop individual skills. SAGs are competitive hockey drills done in a smaller-than-normal playing area, and are designed to teach players through the simulation of game situations. Drills and Small Area Games become more advanced than those in the SD1 program.
The SD2 program runs for 19 weeks from October through March, including a 2-week break over the holidays.
Each week includes 1 practice (Saturdays) and 1 game (Sundays).
The SD2 program is open for general registration.
