Hockey advice for little guys!

My six year old son started playing ice hockey this past year, and absoultly loves it. We use to have to drag him to other sports, but with hockey he completely fell in love with it the first time he got on the ice, and all he wants to do is play hockey!

Growing up in NE Philly I only played street / roller hockey and can't really help him out much on the ice as I am now just learning to skate!

We now live in Maryland, and the ice rink he plays at has stick and puck nights that we attend. Can anybody recommend a good child friendly video hockey program that we can watch and incorporate the workouts into the stick and puck nights?

Also, can anybody recommend a good hockey camp for kids in the Philly area?

Well, if you want a lot of drills to use, you can go to my site.
http://www.passthepuck.net and sign up as a member.

What I would do them is send you guys a monthly newsletter with all sorts of stuff; new drills, coaching tips, strength and condition tips with pictures, dry land videos, power skating videos, plus, new things that might interest you as a parent.

Also, if you would like. You can click on my name: Headcoach and search for all of the posting that I have posted on this site. They generally have coaching tips. Or, you can go here to see other coaching tips that I have posted for an international forum: http://forums.internationalhockey.ne...splay.php?f=67

Plus, as a member, you can email me any time if you have question. Or you can just post it here on this site. There are a lot of good coaches that have great ideas on how to improve both your games on this site.

USA Hockey puts out a pretty decent skills and drills video.
