7000 Shot Club Sheet

Dear Members,

I'm excited to announce some important events taking place during the preseason ice this fall.

First, we are welcoming former NHL player and longtime coach Ryan Kraft for his Krafting Champions skating clinic October 2nd, 3rd, and 5th. 

      Group 1:  5:00-6:00PM   U10/Squirts

      Group 2:  6:15-7:15PM   U12/Peewee

      Group 3:  7:30-8:30PM   Bantam

Then, on Saturday, October 14, we have Francisco Hockey coming for body contact and concussion prevention clinics (goalies more than welcome for lots of shots). See what they're about HERE

Session 1: U10/Squirts

  • Video Session: 8-8:50am

  • On-ice Training: 9-11am

Session 2: U12/Peewee

Hi everyone!

We are committed to giving every player in Detroit Lakes Youth Hockey the tools to reach their greatest potential.

With that in mind, we are partnering with Project Hockey to bring you the best at-home hockey training system on the planet. Start now for a free trial, which will roll into a subscription from September through February covered by DL Youth Hockey. 

This training system is all contained in one simple app that each player can download onto their phone (or a parent's device) and use it to train every single day.

Here's what we get:

I can't wait to see you take your training to the next level! 
Instructions to download the app and get started:

  1. Sign up here: LINK

  2. Use coupon code: DETROITLAKES1

  3. Download the app on your Apple devices: LINK

  4. Download the app on your Android devices: LINK

  5. Start training today and #dothework

Additionally, join us for a quick Zoom introduction with Project Hockey's coach and founder (and my college teammate) Danny Heath, Monday, June 19, 6:30-7 pm.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Thank you,
Joe Schiller
Hockey Director

P.S. It will request that you enter your credit card information into the system. The reason for this is so that the Project Hockey App can save your personal training data. In the future, you can then stay signed up for the program as long as you would like for $11.99/month for life (which is 40% off), after DLYHA's partnership expires at the end of next hockey season.

Goalie Camps

Calling all DLYHA goalies! Below is a list of goalie camps being offered through  Goalie Academy! Please take a look and see if any offered are of any interest to you. If DLYHA has 5 or more goalies sign up for camps we will get a discount.  You can sign up on Goalie Academy's website.

Join Our Hockey Officials Team

So you thought that wearing the stripes might be fun, or hard work, or frustrating, or the best seat in the house, or a good way to get some extra ice time, a good part-time job, a possible career, or perhaps something else entirely. The fact is, you’d be right on all counts. These are all valid reasons for wanting to serve as a referee, and here at Detroit Lakes Youth Hockey, we have a solid core of experienced officials who can help you get started. While it is a fact that we are all still learning, not all learning needs to be the hard way. To that end, our Mentor Program provides a senior official for you to follow on the ice and to then follow you for the first few games to work on positioning, seeing the ice, making calls, dealing with questions, working with your partner, and all the other things that we are constantly seeking to improve.
If this sounds like a good thing to you, there are a few steps to take to get started.
1. Go to and click on the Become a Member button. You have probably done this as a player, but
you will need to do it again as an official.
2. Complete the registration process (your registration fee gets reimbursed with the first game you officiate!) and then
sign up for a Level One seminar. Our local seminar is on the 18th of Sept, so sign up sooner rather than later.
Space is limited.
3. Get a whistle! Not a basketball whistle. The Acme Thunder and Fox 40 are favorites with hockey officials. carries them.
4. We have helmet/shield combos and sweaters for you to borrow until you decide you need your own.
5. Black pants are required. Can be warm-up pants or sweat pants. Shin pads and a cup (for males) are highly
recommended. Elbow pads might also be a good thing.

You’re a part of the hardest working team on the ice!
