Because of the limited number of players and coaches we currently have we are going to try to make practices simpler this season.
We are going to try group practices for each division and set up skills stations to help promote skill development. Depending on the number of teams in each division, once we have teams established, we will determine if a second practice during the week is warranted, needed and desired.
CHILL is setup with skill based divisions to keep players competing on similar levels as the other players around them. The ages are guidelines but not rules.

Games could be on foot or skates (4-7) AHL - players that are able to skate, but learning the game (5-9) IHL - players that can skate, learning intermediate skills (7-12) SPHL- new or developing players (12-17) ECHL - experienced competitive players that are learning skills, but focusing on strategy (12-17)
