5000 Shot Challenge
by posted 06/13/2014
 

 

Hockey is an excellent form of exercise and TSR Hockey wants to encourage our youngest hockey players to stay active and improve their game allwhile having some fun this summer. The 5,000 Shot Challenge program will motivate them to stay healthy, improve their shooting skills, and will teach them the benefit of setting -- and achieving -- a goal.

The 5,000 Shot Challenge is for youth players (including goalies) to shoot as many pucks as possible at home (driveway, patio, basement) on their own time. The Challenge will run for twelve (12) weeks from May 31, 2014 until August 23, 2014. During this period, participants will be asked to track the number of pucks they shoot each day and tracking sheets need to be completed by the shooter and verified by a parent. The program is designed to be completed by shooting 100 pucks per day, 5 days per week for 10 weeks; the 12-week period factors in two weeks for vacations/days off. While the rules and guidelines remain the same for the Mite and U8 shooters, the requirement for the program is only 2,500 pucks (50 pucks per day, 5 days per week for 10 weeks).

The Challenge Tracking Sheets will be distributed in three stages. Every youth player who registers on or before June 10th will be given the first four weeks of tracking materials. These sheets, once completed and signed, should be returned to TSR; the sheets for weeks 5-7 will the be given. The final set of tracking sheets for weeks 8-10 will be given to those who return all previous tracking sheets.

Once each set of tracking sheets in completed, the verification form may be returned to any TSR store location or by email at

Every participant who turns in their tracking sheets will have their shooting progress displayed in our Salem, NH flagship store and online on the TSR 5,000 Shot Challenge blog at http://tsrhockey.blogspot.com/. The blog will also provide video tips on shooting and any photos that participants would like to submit. No last names will be used identifying shooters in photos. Participants should enter their email on the blog in order to receive updates to the blog.

Participants who complete the Challenge by successfully shooting and tracking 5,000 pucks this summer will receive a limited edition TSR 5,000 Shot Challenge T-Shirt and will be entered in drawings to win several prizes from our sponsors Bauer Hockey and Shoot To Score Hockey School.

Suggestions for making the challenge of completing 5,000 shots easier:

- Shoot 5 sets of 20 pucks to reach 100 shots, this should take no more than 30 minutes with no distractions;

- Have a dedicated place to shoot;

- Get into a routine: choose a time that you know you can do every day;

- Plan ahead for days that you know you cannot shoot;

- Set up a shooting area with a hockey net or a tarp with targets marked in corners.

What you will need for the 5,000 Shot Challenge:

- Regulation-sized net (street or ice hockey net, or even an area drawn on a concrete wall);

- Shoot tutor or targets (can be purchased or made);

- Shooting surface (concrete floor, driveway, plastic shooting board)

- At least 10 pucks

- Hockey stick (should be a few inches shorter than the one used on the ice as the player will most likely be in sneakers)

- Hockey gloves

Players must follow the guidelines for each week are encouraged to shoot more than the minimum

pucks required. If a player cannot hit the upper corner of the net as required, they can shoot

USA Hockey Rule on Helmets

USA Hockey Rule on Helmets
 
As we all know safety of our players is of the utmost importance.  Under USA Hockey regulation Rule 304(c) Protective Equipment - Enforcement Guidelines;  a note has been added relating to helmets that acknowledges the HECC sticker and the inclusion of an expiration date that de-certifies a helmet if that date has passed.  Older helmets have a date of certification (not an expiration date) Helmets have always been required to be HECC certified, but now they state that under normal wear and tear their certification is good for 6.5 years.  The rationale is that the protective qualities of the padding degrades over time.
 
Please be advised that you and/or your child should not remove the HECC sticker from their helmet as officials are looking for these stickers to be present.  There have been recent cases, not within our organization, where officials were checking for the presence of the HECC stickers on helmets, and may choose to remove a player from the ice.  Absence of a sticker does not disqualify a helmet, but does not help if a referee needs to make a determination.
 
Our District and Conference Representatives are working with SS Conference, Yankee Conference, District 3 and the Chief Referees to assure we have a mutual understanding of this ruling and the potential for our players to be disqualified from play.  Best practice moving forward is to assure the HECC sticker is in place on your child's helmet and that the expiration date has not passed.  Be sure to check your child's helmet for proper fit, and assure all components are in place (i.e. face mask, J-Clips, ear pieces, etc.).

Sync Your Children’s Schedules to Your Electronic Calendar

Sync Your Children’s Schedules to Your Electronic Calendar
You can sync your children's schedules to the calendar on your own phone or PC or to your Google Calendar. If you do this once, any changes or additions to that schedule will be automatically updated on your calendar without any additional effort on your part. It is EASY and requires less than two minutes to complete.
 
  1. Start by going to the CYH schedule of one of your players.
  2. Choose the "multi-schedule" option.
  3. At the top of the next page select "Listing" (Pop-up blockers may interfere with the other options.)
  4. Select all your kids' teams and click "submit."
  5. At the top of the next page, you will see five icons: "Link to this Page," "Google Calendar," "Add iCal Event," "Download CSV," and "Print this Page."
  6. Click "Add iCal Event." This should start a process on your phone or computer that automatically links this schedule to the calendar on your device.
  • You will need to do this separately on each device.
  • I recommend doing this even if you use Google Calendar and want to complete the step below.
  • Disclaimer: I'm not 100% sure if this process is quite this easy on older versions of Outlook. However, even if the link process does not start automatically, there will be an option to add an iCal link, even in older versions. It may require you to go into Outlook and choose a menu option.
  • I find that changes show up more or less instantaneously on my calendars.
OPTIONAL ADDITIONAL STEP FOR GOOGLE CALENDAR USERS
 
  1. Click "Google Calendar." This will give you a URL.
  2. Copy this URL.
  3. Open Google Calendar.
  4. On the left hand side of Google Calendar under "Other Calendars" choose "Add" and then "Add by URL."
  5. Paste the URL into the box provided.
  • Then Google Calendar will be automatically updated every time an event is changed or added.
  • Changes are generally reflected in a relatively short time, but not quite as instantaneously as on my device calendars.
