Rangers Visit Northlake Woods School

It was a beautiful morning when Dan Gyenes, Jakub Kindl, Yannick Weber, J-M Rizk, Troy Smith and Brad Sparkes went to Northlake Woods Public School in Waterloo to continue the Bell Captains Clinic.

Coach Smith started by warming up the students. First was the run on the spot, followed by high knees and went into some quick feet! He then lead them into a simple stretch.

After everybody was warmed up, Coach Smith then split the students up into 3 groups. Each group then went to a station.

The first station was run by Jakub and Yannick. It consisted in run around the cones they had set up on the ground. Once the player was done going around the cones, he then had to go down and take a shot on the goalie.

The second station was under Dan's supervision. He had his players do a give-and-go drill. How that worked was that the player started at one end of the gym. Then had to move his ball to Dan to get it back right away and go down and take a shot on net.

The last station was a 2 on 1 drill. J-M was running that one. Two forwards had to go down on one defenseman and try to score on the goalie!

We look forward to hosting to students to the Aud on Wednesday November 29th to skate with the players.

We would like to thank our sponsor Bell and the North Lake Woods students for their great participation.
