Green Line Characteristics
Our goal is to create consistent player character traits across our program; traits represented in our “Green Line.” Practices and skills sessions will be designed to strengthen these competencies, games will be used to reinforce them, and players will be assessed based on them. When we do this kids will develop into better hockey players & teammates and enjoy the game.

Positive attitude and supportive teammate. Trust our teammates and play as a team.
