Jr. 99ers Program

BMHA will introduce a new extension for Mini Macs players that are ready to make the move to the next level of player development. This program will be called Jr. 99ers, and is an invitation program from the Fall Mini Macs session.

Players from the Fall program will be evaluated and invited to join Jr. 99ers. We will take 20 to 25 players in this new program.

Jr. 99ers will be 10 sessions of 50 minutes each. Coach Rob and John will take the skills and drills up to the next level to prepare participants for the Timbits level next season.

Cost will still be $150 and time slot is 11:30 am - 12:30 pm, mostly on Saturdays.

NEW This Year - Mini Macs Enhancement Opportunity

Brantford Minor Hockey and Head Mini Macs Instructor - Rob Crocock would like to invite new Mini Macs players to get an early start on their skating skills. Participants are invited to attend extra private lessons before the start of the Winter session on January 15. These extra lessons will take place at Cro’s Ice Nest run by Rob Crocock.

Rob is offering private sessions at $10 per ½ hour. This is totally optional to players and is an opportunity for players to get an early feel for skating (with full equipment on) in a small one-on-one setting.

For more information on these private sessions, contact Rob Crocock at [email protected]
