The 20th annual McFall Brothers Hockey School for boys and girls ages 5 to 12 will be held at the Jamestown Savings Bank Arena July 23-27.
The McFall Brothers Hockey program focuses on skills progression in skating and individual hockey skills and techniques. The hockey school offers three separate group sessions: mini-mite group (ages 5-7), intermediate group (ages 8-10), advanced group (ages 11-14).
Tom McFall, a fifth-grade teacher at Chautauqua Lake Central School, coordinates the registration and promotion of this event. He is assisted on the ice by John McFall, Jr., a fourth-grade teacher in the Hamburg School District and head coach of the Hamburg Varsity hockey team, and Dan McFall, a former member of the Winnipeg Jets of the NHL, who is currently the owner and director of FullStride Hockey Programs in Burlington, Vt. The three McFall Brothers, who grew up in Kenmore, credit their love of the sport to their father, John McFall, Sr., who coordinated hockey leagues and on-ice training programs at Holiday Twin Rinks for 30 years.
Each of the three groups at the McFall Brothers Hockey School will be personally run by one or more of the McFall brothers. The school prides itself on providing top rate instruction. With their combined 75-plus years of hockey instruction experience, Tom, John, and Dan will provide age-appropriate, creative on-ice instruction to each group. For the younger group in particular, the program places great emphasis on creating a fun learning environment where kids can enjoy themselves while advancing their hockey abilities.
There is still limited space available for this year's school. To obtain a registration form or to get additional information, contact Tom McFall by phone at 664-9228, 499-8986 or by e-mail at email@example.com .
