Source For Sports Cross Ice Jamborees
What is a Cross Ice Jamboree?
The SHA is pleased to announce a new Program that started in the fall of 2015. A Cross Ice Jamboree will focus on Cross Ice Games as well as individual skill. This full day event will consist of 4 Initiation teams competing in 3- 20 minute Cross Ice Games, as well as 3- 20 minute skill sessions. All of the skills that will be taught will align with Hockey Canada’s Development Model. The below illustration shows how the ice will be divided for the Cross Ice Jamboree.
- 2 teams will play the Cross Ice game while the other 2 teams are doing skills. After 10 minutes at skill station 1 and 10 minutes at skill station 2 the 2 teams will switch skill stations.
- After the 20 minutes is complete the 2 teams that were playing the Cross Ice Game will switch to the skill stations and the 2 teams that were doing skills will now play the Cross Ice Game.
The SHA would like to provide any Minor Hockey Association with the opportunity to host a Source for Sports Cross Ice Jamboree. The SHA feels that with Minor Hockey Associations involvement in a Cross Ice Jamboree, there will be an increase in the player's enjoyment of the game, while also increasing the education of the parents and coaches in a Cross Ice Format.
