G4H ROCKS 3 v 3
G4H Rocks 3 v 3 Spring Series is a fun and competitive skill development and cross-ice games program offered for birth years 2003 - 2016. Players are evaluated and separated into different ice times by age group and within that, into small teams that compete in cross ice 3 v 3 games throghout the program.
This program is run by G4H, so you do NOT have to be a past or present Vermont Shamrocks player to participate!
How It Works
The G4H Rocks Spring Series will run for 8 weeks April - May. Registrants will have one guaranteed ice-time per week at Cairns Arena in South Burlington. Each session will consist of 30 - 35 minutes of small group, station-based skill work and 25 - 30 minutes of mini games (2 v 2, 3 v 3, etc), which will be played in a round-robin style format.
Week 1 will serve as an evaluation tool for placing players on small teams of 6 - 8 skaters and 1 goalie. Players will receive their team assignments and a jersey for their team when they arrive at the rink on Week 2. Weeks 2 - 7, players will be grouped with their designated team for station-based work and will play two 12 minute mini games each week under the direction of their designated G4H coach for the day. Standings will be kept for each team and posted on the G4H website weekly. On Week 8, players will participate in a 40-minute "for fun" mini skills competition, then compete in a final 12-minute game with first and second place teams playing for the championship and third and fourth place team playing a consolation game. There is a prize for winning championship! To be announced later.
Goaltenders: There will be a designated goalie coach on the ice each session. You will work on goalie specific skills & drills with our goalie coach for approximately 15 minutes as a warm up, then will take shots in stations for the remaining portion of the skills session with feedback from our goalie coach before jumping in goal for your team during mini games. (Note: The 8U age bracket will not have goaltenders - if you are in this age group and wish to play goalie, please contact us).
Please note: The schedule has changed slightly from our inital schedule release in February. Please see below for current schedule based on age group. You will receive an email noting your scheduled ice times.
