USA Hockey Roger Grillo Seminar Rescheduled for March 1st 7pm

Our Travel Hockey Director, Clark Jones, has arranged for USA Hockey's Roger Grillo to give a presentation/seminar on USA Hockey’s long term athlete development model.  He will be discussing windows of trainability (physical, mental, cognitive and emotional development), nutrition, off ice training, and the importance of academics for aspiring competitive hockey players.  We anticipate that the seminar will include an active Q&A discussion with attendees.  The seminar will be held at 7pm, on Tuesday March 1st in the common area of the Upper School (Stevens Building) at New Canaan Country School.

 

This seminar is a great opportunity for serious NCWC and NCCS hockey players and parents to learn more about USA Hockey’s Long Term Athlete Development model.  We encourage all interested hockey parents and travel hockey players to attend.  Attendance is limited to NCWC Members and coaches and any interested New Canaan Country School students, parents and Coaches.

 

Roger Grillo Biography - Coach Grillo joined USA Hockey having spent the previous 12 years (1997-2009) as head coach of Brown University’s men’s ice hockey team. He was named a finalist for the Spencer Penrose National Coach of the Year in 1997-98.  Previously, Grillo served seven seasons (1990-97) as assistant men’s hockey coach at the University of Vermont, where he helped coach the squad to the 1997 ECAC Hockey regular-season title and NCAA tournament appearances in 1996 and 1997.  Grillo has been widely involved in USA Hockey initiatives over the course of his career, including serving as a coach at USA Hockey player development camps over the past 17 years and sharing his wealth of knowledge with up-and-coming coaches as a lecturer at USA Hockey coaching clinics. In addition, he has been the head coach of several US National teams. Coach Grillo was a Vancouver Canucks draft pick and member of the University of Maine Black Bears.  The NCWC's own Sean Hurley and Ryan Longfield both played for Coach Grillo at Brown.   

 

This meeting is a great opportunity to learn about cutting edge thinking on athletic development and we encourage you to attend.
