GK Combine Weekend

Combine Weekend Events and Schedules

The practices are team practices conducted by your coaching staff.  The individual skills sessions will be run by Fineline.  These sessions will focus on skating and individual puck work.  

The goalie session on the Friday will be for all of the goalies from Minor Atom to Minor Midget and will also be run by FL.





On Saturday August 19 from 2:30 - 3:30 PM there will be a yoga class on the main field.  This class will be put on by Life Yoga and will be open to all available GK members.  Yoga has quickly become a major factor in the overall conditioning and strengthening of hockey players.  This class will be an introduction and will focus on core strength and flexibility.  

On Sunday August 20 from 1:00 - 2:30 PM at the Lions Club Hall (108 Amherst Drive which is just down the road from the arena) there will be a presentation by Joanne Soucie from Spark Healthy Habits.  Joanne is a nutritionist and will speak about different kinds of foods and how they relate to performance.  This will also be open to all available GK members.  Parents will also be invited as long as we do not run into capacity issues with the hall.  The hall has a maximum capacity of about 130 people.  I plan on having Joanne speak at least two more times throughout the year to talk about healthy eating habits and to answer questions and monitor progress.  Those dates will be announced at a later time and will be open to everyone as well.

We also have the board room in the rink available to us both days and I urge teams to take advantage of it.  It is a perfect place to have a team meeting to discuss the upcoming season, strategy, or to even have a parent meeting.  In order to avoid any confusion the room will be booked through me in 1 hour intervals starting at 8:00 AM.  If you want to book the room for a specific time please email me.  The slots will be given on a first come first serve basis.

The pool at the complex is open as well that weekend and there are a couple of public swims.  There is a public swim on Saturday from 10:00AM - 12:00PM and there is also one on Sunday from 2:00 - 5:00PM.  If you choose to go swimming remember that this is separate from our combine and each individual and/or team will be responsible for their own cost.

Outside of all of this each team is still permitted to use the surrounding facilities and/or bring in other people if they wish.  This will then become a team cost though but it is welcomed if you have the time.
