Summer is a great time to work on your hockey skills. Bismarck Hockey is excited to announce a new challenge this summer. We're calling it:

The 2017 BHB Dirty Dangler Challenge

All that's required is 25hrs of stick handling practice before next season. That's about an hour per week.

Hockey camps and summer AAA teams are fun. But if your kids really want to become elite hockey players, they can do a lot of the work at home without all the expense and travel. Encourage them to put down their phones and pick up their sticks.

Below are some of the excellent stickhandling videos available. It's important that the kids are starting with the proper fundamentals (top hand grip, bottom hand slide, hand spacing, hands away from body). These points are covered in many of these videos.

Make sure your kids keep track of their practice time. Notify me when they have completed their 25hrs and we'll get them a cool t-shirt and inducted into the inaugural BHB Dirty Dangler Club.
