2018 Fall Warmup

2018 FALL WARMUP Willmar Hockey Association (WHA) is proud to partner with Mike Lippert at A110 Athletics as well as M.E.G.A Goaltending to offer a fall development program for WHA and Willmar High School hockey players. This program is constructed to improve the skills your player will need to compete and perform for this upcoming hockey season.

Mike and his staff will partner with WHA coaches to provide the highest level of training that is specifically tailored for both skaters and goaltenders at all levels. Sessions are offered for similar levels of development to ensure each player gets the most out of every session. The goal of WHA is to provide every opportunity possible for our young athletes to progress in their skillset. This program will offer each player the tools necessary to be successful in hockey and beyond.

We at the WHA are excited to offer this opportunity to our players and we hope to see you this fall.  Please click the WHA Fall Warmup link below for full details.  Please come back right here on June 22nd to register.
