5000 PUCK CHALLENGE
The Yankton Area Ice Association is sponsoring a 5000 Puck Challenge to all registered youth hockey players. The overall goal of this initiative is to increase shot speed, quickness and accuracy. The players will do the shooting on their own in a garage, against a tarp, into a net, or any other type of shooting station that can handle pucks. Players interested in this off-season shooting incentive must follow the ten week program, which will run:
April 1 – June 9
June 10 – August 18
-Players who complete one of the 5000 Puck Challenge Sessions will each receive a 5000 Puck Club Prize (Prizes Yet To Be Determined).
