Team of the Week Cobra Mites
The Cobra mite team is comprised of 10 players- Ella, Balyn, Evan, Draek, Cooper, Noah, Elijah, Liam, Henry, and Charlie. Their ages range from 6-8 years old and this is the first year that all players have played for the Vipers Organization. The team has only been playing together for a few months now, but they are growing and bonding quickly. The locker room is filled with laughter, jokes, and nonstop talking about what is going on at school, chats about video games, sports, and just encouragement for one another.
Mini-Camp Day with different team building activities. During practices and games the focus is on developing all of the basic skills: skating, stick-handling, and positioning. The coaches communicate back and forth on specific skills that need work based on what is happening in the games. In just half of the season so far, it has been spectacular watching the amazing growth of the team.
fortunate enough to have participated in the Youth on Ice event mid-November at the Giant Center. The players got to take to the big ice and play in between the 1st and 2nd period. They even got to meet Coco the Bear. There was so much talk and excitement in the air with that awesome experience.
The Cobras will be participating in two tournaments this season. The first is the Hershey President’s Day Tournament held at Twin Ponds East on February 16-18th and the second is the York March Madness on March 8-10th at York City Ice Arena. There is also a possibility of a third tournament, which would be the Hershey St. Patrick’s Day Tournament on March 16-18th.
