Welcome to the Blizzard Hockey Club (2018 Season)

Mission Statement: The Blizzard HC is dedicated to providing the elite hockey player an opportunity to develop individual and team skills, while competing against the top players and programs around North America. Our focus centers on mentoring, developing and shaping the character of these fine young people in our program. Let us make sure each and every player has a memorable and positive experience while they compete with our hockey organization.

Philosophy: The Blizzard HC will be known for being well coached, highly skilled, disciplined and above all, being the hardest working teams on and off the ice. Our program will emphasize that our players represent themselves with the highest class and character, while showing respect for their opponents and the game of hockey.

Teams: For the 2018 Fall Season, the Blizzard HC will roster teams at the U18, U16, and U15 age groups.

Practice Schedule: We will procure around 30 hours of practice ice at various rinks in the general metro area. Our goal is to have 2.5 hours of practice per week starting in August and ending the first week of November.

Tournament/Game Schedule: MN Blizzard Fall Showcase, Shattuck St. Mary’s Showcase, Omaha USHL Fall Classic. Scrimmages against the stronger Tier 1 programs will be set up throughout the season. We will do our best to keep hotel travel to a minimum in order to keep travel costs low. (Appx game count – 25).

Uniforms: Each player will receive a home/away set of jerseys and socks, each player is responsible to have their own Black Helmet & Gloves.

Tryout Process: Each Blizzard HC team will be hand selected by our Hockey Operations Staff, with the evaluation process taking place during the winter season. Selected players will be expected to lock in their spot within 14 days of receiving the invite or risk losing the spot to another player.

Cost and Payments: $1600/player to be paid in 3 installments. Initial up front $500 non-refunable deposit to guarantee roster spot. Second payment of $550 will be collected July 1, and final $550 payment to be collected on August 1. 

Roster: Each Blizzard HC team will consist of 12 forwards, 6 defenseman and 2 goalies for a total of 20 players. Our teams will carry up to 3 practice players during the season. These players would be the first to be called up if a rostered player is injured or other unforeseen circumstances arise.
