Welcome to the '00 Ice Hawks Red website. This is a new 2000 Ice Hawks team. The team's goal is to replicate the success achieved by the '97 Ice Hawks. A strong core of Yzerman players has already committed to this new organization.
Greg Cheesewright, head coach of the '97 Ice Hawks, will lead the '00 Ice Hawks Red. This is the only team that he will coach this year. Coach "Cheese" will use the same formula for success that made the '97 Ice Hawks the Bauer International Invite AAA and International Silver Stick champions this past season.
We are looking for hockey players, not kids who play hockey. We are looking for players who will work hard to improve as players and as a team.
The team will:
- Start its season with a 4 day summer camp at the Otsego Club in Gaylord, MI. The camp includes loads of skating, dry land, and team building.
- Focus on developing hockey skills. There will be lots of skating!
- Skate 4 days a week in September and October and 3 days a week after October.
- Skate and train mostly at McCann Arena (Liggett), but may take one sheet of ice a week in a different rink in District 3 to help families not on the eastside.
- Use outside instructors for power skating, goaltending and defense.
If you have any questions about the team, feel free to call Coach Cheesewright at 248-302-1881. Or email us at email@example.com.
