Holy Cross Men's Ice Hockey Announces Coaching Seminar With USA Hockey & The Junior Crusaders
Holy Cross Athletics and the men’s ice hockey program are excited to be working with USA Hockey and the Junior Crusaders Youth Hockey organization on a coaching seminar this month!
“We are very excited about this seminar with the Junior Crusaders and USA Hockey,” said Holy Cross head men’s ice hockey coach David Berard. “This will only further strengthen youth hockey in Central Massachusetts.”
The Junior Crusaders program consists of youth hockey players from 19 towns around the Worcester area and currently enrolls over 600 members. Their mission is to help young individuals develop as athletes, leaders, and members of the community through a competitive hockey program that emphasizes excellence, commitment, self-discipline, determination, teamwork and sportsmanship.
“We could not be more excited to be working with such a great Division I program. Holy Cross has a very similar mission to better young people,” said Earl Corey, president of the Junior Crusaders. “Coach Berard and his staff have been incredibly generous with their time and resources and our kids absolutely love coming to games and interacting with the student-athletes. We feel very fortunate to be even more involved this season and for what is to come.”
The seminar will be for all Junior Crusaders coaches at all levels and be led by Roger Grillo (USA Regional Manager, American Development for USA Hockey) and the Holy Cross hockey coaching staff. Topics that will be covered will include skill development, off-ice conditioning and other coaching tactics and techniques used at the highest levels. It will take place on Aug. 14 at the newly renovated Hart Center at the Luth Athletic Complex at Holy Cross.
