Playing Time

The Nook Hockey Academy has adopted this playing time philosophy.  In our experience, it has shown that the concept of equal playing time has a different meaning for coaches, parents, and athletes.  We do not guarantee playing time.  Our philosophy is to compete at the highest level.  The actual time in each tournament or game is based on each athlete’s strength of play. Some factors that will affect playing time are age, experience, performance at practices, and competitive level of play.
