About

ISS Kings Youth Hockey Club, LLC

Entering our 5th season, the ISS Kings Youth Hockey Club, LLC is an independent USA Hockey registered team  for the 2002 birth year.  The club’s primary focus is on a thoughtful player-development model, and have been a top 10 team for the last 3 of its first four seasons.   The model is based on the following:

  • Maximize ice time, and create a consistent schedule that is academic, family-friendly, and in the best interest of the players. Two 90 minute practices per day  Saturday and Sundays furthers this objective.
  • Professional non-parent coaches whose primary goal is player development.  
  • Provide over 250 hours of ice vs. the standard 105 hours of shared ice at standard programs.  Additonally, spring tournaments and two one week long mini-camps in August provided. 
  • To develop youth hockey players in a serious, moral, and ethical manner with the eventual goal of helping these players reach their full potential.
  • To see each player improve markedly from April to March in both their hockey skills and knowledge of the game.
  • To teach players a respect for their coaches, their teammates, and the game of hockey.
  • Emphasis on player character and work ethic

The team will get over 250 hours of ice. The Kings’ shall be instructed by professional non-parent coaches including Nolan Howe; the son of Hall-of-Famer Mark Howe, and the grandson of Hall-of-Famer Gordie Howe.  

Team Principles

  • Four Pillars of Successful Hockey Development:
    • Skills – on ice and off ice training
    • Competitiveness – not enough to work hard, must also learn how to compete
    • Thinking – Hockey Sense is Teachable through Education
    • Passion – Player must have passion for the game – practices must be fun.
  • Large emphasis on skill development, character and work ethic:
    • Focus on coordination, motor skills, and decision making capabilities.
    • The central theme of teaching on the team is one of Concepts Development
  • Scrimmages shall be used as a feedback mechanism to see what the team needs to work on
  • There are no “star” players, but now entering Midget Major year the model will progress to performance based play. 
  • Disrespect of authority and foul language will not be tolerated
  • Making hockey fun
  • Open communication
  • State-of-the-art game film and video shall be used
