For several years, the Greater New Haven Warriors Learn-To-Play Hockey Clinic has been directed by Mike Bouchard and his Coaching Staff. As players, Mike and his staff grew up locally playing youth hockey in the New Haven area, with added experiences playing in high school, prep school, college, and at the professional level.
In order to meet the needs of each child, Mike and his staff draw upon their personal playing experiences, their experiences coaching many different ages and levels, as well as the USA Hockey American Development Model (ADM), and the Love of the Game!
Players should wear a helmet with full face guard, hockey gloves, and hockey skates, and we also recommend that players wear shin guards and elbow pads. Discounted new equipment packages are available from the Pro Shop at Northford Ice Pavilion and used equipment is also available at Hamden Sports Center at 2858 Whitney Ave in Hamden.
