than ever, the Burlington City Rep Hockey Club is continuing to progress
the way we DEVELOP our Eagles athletes. We have continued to transform
and improve our NLT based on feedback from the Eagles Hockey Committee, Eagles
Development team, Eagles coaches, Eagles conveners and Eagles parents,
guardians and players. Based on all the feedback, we have made the
necessary changes in improving the extensive development and training program
that will reward every Eagles athlete and each Eagles team by teaching fitness habits, instilling life-skills, creating healthy
competition, increasing friendships, and providing enjoyment in the great sport of hockey.
This year’s NLT program will include the most qualified off-ice coaches and the highest level of local on-ice skill coaches that excel in all aspects of technical, tactical, and team development. These coaches will evaluate and improve the needs of the Eagles athletes through extensive on ice skill development and off-ice training techniques. The Eagles hockey club has committed to hundreds of hours of positioning specific training for our Eagles athletes with Scott Mifsud, Justin DaCosta, Jeffrey Gilligan, Brandon Coccimiglio, Jeff Adams and Bryce O’Hagan providing more consistency and customized skill development for our Eagles players, coaches and teams.

NLT Team Coordinator:
Each team has a designated NLT Team Coordinator who will work with the coaching staff to coordinate the NLT budget to ensure proper execution. The NLT Team Coordinator will communicate with the parents, guardians and coaches to ensure transparency into the program and the budget. Team Coordinators will follow the plan outlined between the coaches and the Club NLT Coordinator Corey Locke.
The Burlington City Rep Hockey Club is a dedicated association steeped in tradition and the club wants to grow our evolvement, successes and improvements. The club recognizes the need to continue to learn, change and evolve, thus we continue to improve and develop the Next Level Training platform created several years ago. Our Eagles club is focused on investing resources and time into the development of our members, coaches and players to help and add more consistency as everyone graduates up through the Eagles club.
Finding, adding, and placing the right qualified development coaches for the Eagles players, coaches and teams will ensure a combination that DEVELOPMENT and SUCCESS will be achieved by ALL.
