MDP: Fall Skills Clinic & Winter Season *Please Rea



Registration for our Mite Development Program (MDP) has begun.  Please register for one of these programs before Friday, August 25.  A late fee of $250 will be assessed after August 25.  Our season will start much earlier than it has in past seasons so we need everyone who has a 2009-2013 hockey player to register immediately so that we can plan accordingly. 


MDP Fall Skills Clinic – Open to players with 2009/2010/2011/2012/2013 birth years (select squirt age players who are new to hockey may also apply – please email directly if interested). Program will begin in mid to late September (following conclusion of Mite Travel tryouts) and conclude at the opening of the MDP Winter Season. Fall session will be focused on fundamental movement skills and motor development via American Development Model (ADM - http://assets.ngin.com/attachments/document/0098/1005/Hockey_For_Life_Poster_2016.pdf). Sessions will be led by travel hockey coaches and figure skating instructors, as well as parent volunteers. We will merge the group with Winter Session additions at NCWC opening.  Program will include 1 skills clinic per week focused on the development of physical literacy. Fundamental movement skills should be mastered and motor development emphasized.  The basic hockey skills of skating and puck control are introduced and fun competitions are also introduced in a team environment.  This session will be held on Wednesdays from 4:30-5:20 at Darien Ice House (9/20, 9/27, 10/4, 10/11, 10/18, 10/25, 11/1, 11/8) 


MDP Winter Season – Open to all ages (2009/2010/2011/2012/2013). Beginning after the NCWC opening, this program will focus on skill development (2x weekly) with additional cross ice games (1x). Players will be divided by age / skill for practice sessions.  Program will include 3 ice sessions (weekday - ADM station based skill session, Saturday - ADM station based skill session and Sunday - games) during the course of the season. 




In addition, we will continue to look at adding cross ice games with other local youth hockey organizations for our older players as the year progresses as a supplement to the existing program.  


Also, there will be skating evaluations periodically throughout the season.


We will have more information about jerseys, equipment and parent volunteers as we get closer to our first session in the coming weeks. 


If you have any questions, please email  .


Registration Details - Please follow the following four (4) steps to register your Mite Development Program (MDP) Players for both General Registration and their respective MDP program (MDP FALL SKILLS CLINIC and/or MDP WINTER SEASON) at the New Canaan Winter Club.  This process looks more intimidating than it really is and the following steps have been provided to make the process an easier one for you.  Please follow these steps precisely as they will save all of us a lot of time.    


1.Go to www.usahockeyregistration.com and register each hockey player/coach in your family with USA Hockey that will be playing MDP.  Please make sure you register your player(s) by clicking "Ice Players and Coaches.”  Each player will receive a code that has nine (9) numbers and the first five (5) letters of their last name in it.  It is suggested that you print out the USA Hockey registration confirmation (complete with number and barcode) for your records.  At a minimum, please write down your USA Hockey confirmation number for each child and keep this information available for completing Step 4 in the Winter Club’s registration process.  You will need to pay the $47.50/player USA Hockey registration fee (Including $7.50 for the CHC) via credit card.  Children under the age of 6 are free but they must still be registered.


The fourth digit in your USA Hockey number must be a 8.  This indicates you are submitting a current registration for the 2017-18 season.


2. Please print out and complete the NCWC Consent to Treat and Waiver of Liability form (one per family), which is found on the Documents tab on the home page of the NCWC website.  Mail this signed form to:


% Jen Rayher


753 New Norwalk Road


New Canaan, CT 06840


3. Register all family members for General Registration 2017-2018, who intend to skate at the Winter Club at anytime during the season, including general skating. 


Please follow these following steps:

•Go to www.ncwinterclub.com

•Click on Register Online on the left column

•Click the 2017-2018 General Registration button

•Log in by entering email address and your password; if you do not remember your password, then just type in your email address and hit submit.  Your password will be automatically sent to your email address.  PLEASE MAKE SURE THAT YOU ARE REGISTERING BY USING THE EMAIL ADDRESS THAT YOU SENT TO THE WINTER CLUB WHEN YOU FIRST JOINED THE CLUB.  DO NOT REGISTER USING A NEW EMAIL ADDRESS UNLESS THE WINTER CLUB HAS BEEN NOTIFIED ABOUT YOUR NEW ADDRESS AND HAS IT ON FILE AS YOUR PRIMARY EMAIL ACCOUNT. 

•Register Parents first as your information will automatically transfer to your children’s account information.  Click on each family member's name that you need to register and follow instructions for completing the Emergency Contact information, Code of Conduct, and Consent to Treat and Waiver of Liability form.  When you are completing the medical information for each child, please type the word NONE in the appropriate boxes if the particular medical issue does not apply to him or her.  If you do not do this, then the system will not register your child.  Please repeat this step again for each family member if you have not done so already.  Please verify that each family member has been successfully registered by seeing that 2017-2018 General Registration is listed next to or underneath each child’s name. 


***It is not necessary to print out Consent to Treat and Waiver of Liability form again as you have already completed this requirement in Step 2.***  


4. Finally, you need to register all skaters for their respective MDP program (MDP FALL SKILLS CLINIC and/or MDP WINTER SEASON), who intend to skate in this program at the Winter Club.  


***Please note that the system is set up so that you must successfully register for General Registration before you can complete this step***   


Please follow these steps:

•Click on Register Online on the left column.

•Click on your child’s respective link: MDP FALL SKILLS CLINIC and/or MDP WINTER SEASON.

•Click on your child's name that you need to register for each respective Travel Hockey program. 

•Enter your child’s USA Hockey registration number at the bottom of the Participant Information page after you have verified that the information is accurate.  The system will not allow you to finalize your registration unless you provide this information.   

•Double check the information and click submit.  USA Hockey instantaneously verifies that you correctly entered a valid USA Hockey number 

•Once you click submit, you will get an email confirmation that states that your registration is complete.     


Congratulations, you are finished with the entire registration process!!!


Registration for all other Winter Clubs programs (Senior House League, Figure Skating, Men’s Hockey, etc…) will be announced at later dates in October and November.
