Skill building for girls 8-12

At 6U/8U, players weebled and wobbled around the ice as they learned to skate, gained quickness and honed basic movements. At 10U, players are primed for skill development, such as stickhandling, passing, skating and shooting. For boys, the skill acquisition window opens between the ages of 9 and 12. For girls, it’s between 8 and 11. This article covers some of the basics.
