What's the Plan?

Strategy; Fall '17

- Contacting eligible players in Xtreme Hockey to ask if they would like to be evaluated for the 2018 Travel Program. There is no formal try-out for the Xtreme Hockey travel program; to be eligible to travel with Xtreme, you must participate in our program.

- Monitoring players who wish to be evaluated for a travel team through power skating, public hockey and X Hockey league games

- Deciding on assistant coaches and team managers

- In the case of the Female teams, recruiting players


Strategy; Winter '18

- Selecting and announcing teams in each age division (early January)

- Having a parents meeting with each team to discuss packages, exact program costs, etc

- Ordering attire, jerseys, and team gear


Strategy; Spring '18

- Teams will practice and have exhibition games

- Acceptance of team gear and clothing

- Teams will travel on the weekend dates specified above



How much will the 2018 Travel Program cost?

Xtreme Hockey has not announced the cost of the travel program for 2018. Traditionally, travel packages include the following:

- Between 8-12 hours of practice time

- 2-4 exhibition games

- Attire

- Tournament registration

- Team insurance

*** flight, hotel, and transportation costs are the responsibility of the individual player

**** We will be offering more value-added services to the travel program in 2018. Stay tuned!
