Development Weekend Guide

What Can Be Done During a Development Weekend?

Well, we will start by saying what cannot be done. During the Development Weekend, no teams can participate in organized hockey games in New Brunswick. Saying that, there are not many other limitations as to what can be done during the weekend.

Hockey New Brunswick offers a variety of programs that associations may inquire about hosting during the Development Weekend. These Program’s include:

  • Esso Fun Days
  • Initiation Program Jamborees
  • Female First Skills Camp
  • Hockey Canada Skills Camps
  • Chev Safe and Fun Hockey

Minor Hockey Associations have developed their own great ideas that have led to many great Development weekend events in the relatively short history of the program. Associations have held various clinics including:

  • National Skills Standards and Testing program
  • Defenseman clinics
  • Goaltending clinics
  • Shooting clinics
  • Puckhandling clinics
  • Power Skating clinics
  • Checking Clinics
  • Fun and Games Sessions
  • Skills Contests
  • Officiating Sessions

Ideas for Off-Ice Sessions:

  • Parent Sessions
  • Officiating Workshops
  • Player Workshops
  • Team Manager Workshops
  • Speak Out Workshops
  • Keynote speakers

These sessions will be outlined in more detail.
