GSE Preseason Development Program

Let's get on the ice!

Tryouts have been postponed, again! Not to fear, we developed a plan to get players back to hockey.

The purpose of this program is to help get players ready for tryouts, improve players' skills and confidence, and help give players some sense of normal back.

The Preseason Development Program is a set of skill-based clinics for all travel players (space permitting) that will be provided at the San Francisco, Cupertino, and Vacaville rinksDepending on the venue and county restrictions, this program starts October 17th.

Here is a video of what the clinics will look like:

Skill clinics and more

These clinics will feature high intensity skill development, small area games.  All this will be achieved while maintaining strict CDC guidelines.

Players will be grouped by coaches into like skill groups.

Ages: 8U - 18U
Skill levels: AAA, AA, A, BB,  B, and High School
Sessions: Multiple sessions per week 

Players will receive a jersey.  There are no refunds for partial attendance.

This program was developed by Golden State Elite (GSE) Hockey working in conjunction with the Cupertino Cougars, San Francisco Sabercats, and the Vacaville Jets.
