My name is Jamie Leppard and I’m looking forward to coaching the Nepean Wildcats Atom C team for 2018/19 season. This will be my 3rd year involved with the NGHA in a variety of different areas including coaching.
Congratulations to the following players on being selected to the ACC Roster
Focus will be on creating a fun environment where the girls can feel comfortable and enjoy themselves. We want them to show up and leave with a smile on their face. This is key!
Fundamental skill development. Work on the basics and develop those skills through repetition. Make every effort to reduce idle time so the girls are always moving during practice to maximize ice time and development opportunity. Emphasis skating and puck movement.
We will have team goals and individual goals for each player set out at the start of the season.
As the season progress introduce some strategy and positional play based on their comprehension of the game and over time improve decision making with the puck.
Practice with a purpose and always strive to improve.
Ice time will be fair for all girls as the goal is development.
I would expect to be involved with the team 3-4 times a week.
Team fees to be around $1400-1600.
4 or 5 plus the possibility of provincials.
TBD which tournaments but will be 3 local tournaments and 1 or 2 out of town.
Some possible tournaments
Oshawa (late Sept)
North Bay (early Nov)
Peterborough (early Dec)
Belleville (early Jan)
Smith Falls (October)
Nepean ( Feb)
I look forward to seeing all the girls at tryouts and wish the girls the best of luck!!
Any questions just ask and I will be happy to answer them.
