The ultimate advanced skill development stream for competitive-minded advanced 2011, 2012, 2013, and 2014 born players.
The Little Sens Selects (LSS) is a 10-week advanced development program for top level Pre-Novice (U7), Novice (U8-U9), and Atom (U10) players this season. They must already be registered with a minor hockey association and classified as being in the top 20% of players at their age group. This program is for players and parents who are competitive-minded and want more. This will give them professional skill development and coaching on and off the ice to help set them on a path for elite performance. They will not only be pushed through advanced skill development on the ice, but taught important concepts usually reserved for higher levels, and what it means to be “coachable”, a great teammate, and a player who will develop faster by being a better practice player. Their skill development will be complemented by participating every second week in fun and extremely beneficial LSS “game days” where they will spend time scrimmaging in three different sized ice surfaces (divided using padded rink-dividers for clear definition).
Having players compete is a key component of this program which helps to reinforce high performance habits and giving maximum effort at all times. Should COVID-19 restrictions ever prohibit scrimmaging or game situations, they will be replaced with additional advanced skill development and competition drills.
Note that this program is exclusively for players already registered to Hockey Canada sanctioned associations and is intended to serve as supplemental development for advanced players only. No player may choose to be a member of the LSS development program instead of regular sanctioned minor hockey. Due to the competitive nature of this program, players are subject to review.
Dates: Sundays, February 7, 14, 21, 28, March 7, 14, 21, 28. Additional dates TBD.
PLEASE NOTE: Should the provincially mandated lockdown end prior to the current February 11 date, Little Sens Selects sessions will begin starting that week.

Over the 12 weeks the Little Sens Selects (LSS) program will focus on identifying and developing the five (5) foundational pillars of a high performing player. Each on and off-ice session will afford players the opportunity to work with professional development coaches in order to develop the skills and traits required to excel at the top level. The two LSS virtual classroom sessions will feature a combination of video and coach-led conversations focused on two major themes; High Performance Habits and Game Concepts.
