Interested in learning the game?  This is for you!

The VBHC 'D-League' is a year-round program aimed at players ages 18 or older with limited or no ice hockey experience.  The program focuses learning the game of hockey while playing the games.  ​​

Teams are chosen prior to each game by coaches based on experience level and capability.  Each game is facilitated by an on-ice coach.  Prior to the game, coaches facilitate a ‘warm-up’ drill.  During the games, coaches may stop play to point out situations or opportunities.  All instruction is provided by the VBHC coaching team.

Each 'season' is 10 weeks long consisting of 3 full-hour practices and 7 facilitated games.  Players may register for the entire season or join us at any time.  In each practice and game the coaches will focus on game-play situations, including:

  • Team-focused play
  • Offensive and defensive strategies
  • Power play and penalty kills situations
  • Position responsibilities in defensive, neutral and offensive zones
  • Shooting, passing, stick-handling and puck possession skill
