Perfect Practice Makes Perfect

Practice does not make perfect, it makes PERMANENT. Perfect Practice makes perfect. Make sure you are practicing the right way with Coach DJ Walsh, A Great Player, An Even BETTER Coach!

For more information visit or call us at 703-444-0600


Players and parents,
1. You cannot “go anywhere” until the player is 15 or 16.
2. Practice locally. A far away tournament, while a fun experience, is NOT going to advance your “playing career.”
3. A My Hockey Ranking at Squirt Minor means exactly NOTHING. The college coach recruiting your player will not care at all about your My Hockey Rankings now or any other time.

Practice often and practice well and be a GREAT kid. Make a move to advance your hockey career at 15 or 16. (13 or 14 for girls). Nothing else matters. Nothing else matters.
