Bob Gergerich Fall Clinics

08/10/2018, 8:00am EDT
By Ron Michalak

Bob Gergerich will be hosting a series of skill sessions to help players hone their skills in specific areas as outlined below.

The individual clinics are only for Squirt - Bantam aged players, will be limited to 24 skaters to increase puck touches and provide more detailed and focused instruction.  

The cost is $25 per session, and you can sign up for as many as you would like all in one registration, or one at a time at your leisure, but we would caution against that because the space could fill up fast.

As an added bonus, if you sign up for all 7 clinics, you will receive one clinic for free.

All sessions will be conducted from 8:00pm - 8:50pm at the Spencer Family YMCA in Bethel Park, and are open to players from all organizations.

  • August 31st - Stride Correction & Development (with and w/o pucks)
  • September 21st - Quick Feet & Acceleration
  • October 5th - Stick Handling & Moves
  • November 2nd - Battling & Puck Protection
  • November 30th - Advanced Stick Handling & Moves
  • December 7th - Shooting & Goal Scoring
  • December 21st - Edges, Crossovers, & Linear Crossovers (with and w/o pucks)

14U Tier 2 National Champions!

04/09/2018, 6:45pm EDT
By Ron Michalak

Congrats to Bantam Adelman on completing the clean sweep all the way to the top of the mountain by becoming the USA Hockey National Champions at 14U Tier 2.

The team entered as the 7th ranked team in the country and went 6-0 throughout the 5 day tournament to claim the championship.

And to make it as dramatic as possible, the team was down 2-1 late in the championship, but scored the tying goal with 0:36 to go with the extra attacker, and then scored on a 5-3 power play in overtime.

Congrats to all of the coaches, players and families involved in this tremendous accomplishment!
