New to Hockey? Want to give it a try? Join the Wilmette Tribe Half Year Devo Mite House program. It is a fun, low-stress, introductory Hockey experience that will introduce your player to individual skills while having the excitement of being on a team. The program is geared toward players aged 4-8.
This is a great program to graduate to after the Park District Programs such as Learn To Skate programs or Intro To Team Hockey. However, any child with basic skating skills will feel comfortable in the Tribe's program.
Building upon our successful Fall pilot program, Wilmette Hockey and the Wilmette Tribe are excited to announce a winter session of special education hockey.
We are looking to bring the great game of hockey to any child, aged 4-10, who presents with autism to developmental delay to behavior disorder and on through to cognitive impairment.
These sessions will focus on skill building exercises and activities. There will be no hockey scrimmages or formally constructed games during the clinics. Depending on the disabilities involved, lighting, noise level, and equipment can be adjusted on a per session/participant basis. The number of participants will be capped at 10 per session. For Spanish dominant participants instruction will be provided in Spanish.
