DRYLAND

The SAHA Development Committee/Board of Directors encourages teams to use the dryland area for shooting, stickhandling, and fitness training.  When league games start and ice time gets more scarce, we encourage this supplemental practice for you to have with your team. 

Please use this time to help your players work on their hockey skills.  There are stickhandling balls and weighted pucks in the coaching closet near the shooting corner, please ask the Rink Attendant to open it for you.  Please make sure to use the white pucks only in the shooting area.

Coaches must supervise this area when in use and be sure that everything is cleaned up when finished.  Please be respectful when using the area during game times.

Thank You
