The East Coast Ice 2Line League was designed to give the players that were not selected for one of our Elite or AAA teams maximum development in a fun environment in the short 6-7 week spring season. The ice sessions are structured for a great balance of skill development and fun to ensure players develop their skills properly and also develop a passion for the game of hockey!
Each team will have 10 players and 1 goaltender per team (along with 1-2 Sub Players and 1 goalie who practice (depending on division) and fill in), which gives the players a significant amount of exposure to coaches’ feedback and will get them on the ice every second shift to work on the skills they have practiced.
Playing our signature 2Line Hockey League is a positive environment to have fun, build chemistry with your linemates and build new friendships.
Each 2Line team will have 6 hours split ice practice to focus on individual and team development. Teams also have opportunity to add extra practices to the program if the parent group chooses.
-Teams will play a small jamboree of 4X 30 mins games to help us tier teams accordingly for the remainder full 4 games schedule building up to the Final weekend 2-line tournament.
