SKATING
Throughout the 8 sessions we will focus on skating technique, with the thought that practice makes permanent, but perfect practice makes perfect. Any technical flaw in a skater’s stride acts as a limiting
factor in how good that skater can become.

  • Forward/Backward Strides
  • Explosive Starts
  • Back Power Starts
  • Power Turns
  • Stopping
  • Forward/Backward Crossovers
  • Overspeed Training
  • Edge Development
 
INDIVIDUAL PUCK SKILLS
 
Throughout the 8 sessions we will focus on individual puck skills while also further developing fundamental aspects of the game.
 
Specific Stick/Puck handling Skills:
  • Stick handling
  • Shooting (wrist shot, slapshot, backhand)
  • Passing
  • Body Contact/Checking
  • Gapping/Angling
  • Cycling/Puck Protection
  • Positioning
  • Attack Zone Triangle
