GTHL hosts first Development Day of 2023-24 season, welcoming 80 participants

The Greater Toronto Hockey League hosted its first PD Skill Development Day of the 2023-2024 season on Friday, October 6 at Scotiabank Pond. In its fifth season, the event sold out, welcoming 80 participants. The participants ranged from Under-9 to U13, with a varying skillset including house league to ‘AAA’.

The day included two on-ice sessions, an off-ice session in the classroom, as well as dryland training. On the ice, the first session consisted of skating and skills, with a focus throughout the day on skills in stations and small area games. Above all, both on ice sessions prioritized having fun.

In the classroom, participants got competitive in their groups and showed off their knowledge with some heated hockey trivia for a chance to win prizes.

Participants also had the opportunity to go through a dryland session at Matt Nichol’s training facility, running through various activities focusing on fitness and fun.
