DRYDEN – SPORTS – The Dryden Ice Dogs of the Superior International Junior Hockey League and the Dryden Minor Hockey Association will be teaming up in the 2014/2015 season.
The partnership involves having an Ice Dogs player dedicated to every Dryden Minor Hockey team to assist the coaches with any assistance they may need during practices. The coach will be in full control of its team practices and will be able to use its Ice Dogs player as a tool on the ice to introduce new drills by demonstrating and moving pucks.
The Ice Dogs will provide a locker room presence by tying skates and sticks and also be on the ice to assist and communicate the coaches instructions to the players.
The Dryden Ice Dogs will pay for all their players to take an online course called Respect in Sports. This training is mandatory for all volunteers involved in minor hockey across Ontario and Canada.
It’s hopeful this agreement between the two organizations will find to be beneficial for everyone involved. This year’s Dryden Ice Dogs team could see as many as 10 local players play on its team who have played minor hockey with the Dryden Minor Hockey program.
