The Capital City Vipers Youth Hockey Club is Central Pennsylvania’s fastest growing and premier developmental club and we are proud to present the 2021-2022 Evaluation schedule.
Top 5 Reasons to be a Viper:
- Development, Development, Development. The Vipers #1 focus is player development.
- Coach to Player Ratio is the best in the area.
- Bi-Weekly Goalie Clinics with excellent coaching from Mike Sherman (Goalie Plus), and Ben Halford (Accelerate Goaltending).
- Travel Teams will play in the DVHL and the AHF hockey leagues for this coming season.
- Progressive high intensity practices from mites through bantams that ensure your player develops at their peak while having fun. Midget level full ice practices focus on effort, team & individual skills, as well as hockey concepts, while still allowing time for high school hockey.
More information including pre-registration, program details and pricing will be posted soon on our website. Mark your calendars with the below dates!!! All sessions will be at Twin Ponds East.

Tips as you prepare for Evaluations
- Make sure your player arrives at the rink on time. Nothing can knock a player off their game more than having to rush to get dressed.
- Make sure your player is well rested and hydrated.
- Talk to your player about the two things within their control, effort and attitude.
- Effort and enthusiasm are two key attributes of high-level hockey players. Challenge your player to display their highest effort level on the ice during evaluations.
- Remind your player to pay attention to the coaches on the ice as they explain the drill as well as the players who go before them. The attentiveness will assure they perform the drills correctly.
- Be a leader. Lead by example in each drill. Call for the pass during the game play.
- Each player/family should do a self-screen for for COVID-19 related symptoms or exposure prior to coming to the rink.
- Locker rooms will not be available for players, but will be available for goaltenders.
