    Almost Pro Hockey league


    Gusto Hockey is pleased to put together a fun, creative hockey league for U19 players. Due to Minor Hockey having limited ice time we will be able to fill this void. This program is designed to keep players engaged with the game of hockey while running a game style format with skills sessions every 3-4 ice times. Jamie Bennett will be the lead for this program and will be managing all ice times. These ice times are “prime time” for this age group and are consistent all winter long to help them manage school, jobs, and other commitments. This program will start in October and go until the end of March. Due to Covid-19 we follow the phases of HNB protocols and we will be playing full ice games as soon as we can.

    Program Details

    Schedule: See detailed schedule below (all ice times are 8:00-9:00pm)
    Max Players: This program will consist of 24-30 skaters & 2 goalies
    Cost: $600
    Program Includes: 40 hours of ice time & jersey for all players

About Gusto

  • Guiding Principles

    Mission
    Gusto Hockey Development supports players, coaches and clients by providing unparalleled instruction and services. We focus on youth development and coaching education. In a fun, competitive atmosphere, Gusto breaks the game down to its fundamental components creating a solid foundation for the serious hockey player and|or coach.

    Philosophy
    Each Gusto camp is designed using a progression format. We feel this format is critical in the development of all hockey players. The first half of every ice session is devoted to fundamental skill development (technical skills and individual tactics). By isolating specific movements, we break down these fundamentals creating a solid foundation for any hockey player. During the second half of every ice session the more tactical aspects of the game are covered. Initially, the focus is on more complex individual tactics, but as the camp progresses, more in–depth team tactics and concepts are discussed. By incorporating small area games, team competitions, and high intensity scrimmages, we are able to provide our participants the total hockey experience.The progression, complexity and speed of our practice plans are dependent on the age and skill level of our participants.

    Expectations
    • Hard Work: Listen with your eyes and ears to execute to the very best of your abilities
    • Learning: Take something valuable from every session
    • Application: Apply the concepts learned at the next session
    • Have Fun: An integral part of the hockey and learning experience
    • Be Your BEST: Better. Every. Single. Time.

  • What the experts say

    Experts from Hockey Canada compiled the following data with regard to a youth hockey (60-minute) practice and game.
     
    Game Numbers
    • Players will have the puck on their stick for an average of 8 seconds a game
    • Players will average 1 to 2 shots per game
    • Players will take an average of 18 shifts per game
    Practice Numbers
    • 1 efficient practice will give a player more skill development than 11 games collectively
    • In a 60 min practice, a player will have the puck on his/her stick for approx. 8-12 minutes
    • Each player will take a minimum of 30 shots on net
    These numbers clearly indicate that practice is where development takes place. If we extrapolate the above statistics, during a 20–game 20–practice season (1:1 game/practice ratio) the best player on the team only controls the puck for 2.67 minutes during the entire season. Conversely, during practice (entire year), every player on the team would have the puck on his or her stick for 4 hours during the year.
     
    Our instructors are constantly on top of the changing trends in hockey. Through many years of experience, hard work, attention to detail and a passion for the game, we have put together a curriculum specific to your age and skill level. The first half of every ice session is devoted to fundamental skill development (technical skills and individual tactics). By isolating specific movements, we break down these fundamentals creating a solid foundation for any hockey player, mite through junior level players. During the second half of every ice session the more tactical aspects of the game are covered. Initially, the focus is on more complex individual tactics, but as the camp progresses, more in–depth team tactics and concepts are discussed.
