The best players today are well conditioned athletes with a great understanding of all aspects of the game. At a young age, players need to learn and understand the role of all positions regardless of the position they play or prefer. Understanding all positions will, in turn, help them excel at theirs.
My program is designed to improve every aspect of YOUR game. You will be working with my staff and me for an eight week period twice a week, for 4 hours each day to get YOU ready for the upcoming season. We will be covering basic skills (which should be part of your daily hockey routine) such as skating, passing, stickhandling and shooting as well as advanced individual and team tactics.

"DEDICATION DOESN'T HAVE AN OFF-SEASON"(UNKOWN)
On-ice sessions are designed to push every player out of their comfort zone. Practices are high intensity with a focus on individual skill as well as individual tactics and team tactics. I use a specific framework for each age group and adjust them throughout the camp so the athlete will be encouraged, supported and most importantly challanged.
Off-ice training is a must for every serious hockey player. Athleticism and fitness are as important in todays game as hockey skills and my programs are designed to help him/her further improve on-ice performance. Depending on the age and physical ability I designed drills that promote coordination, stability, agility, speed, stickhandling, shooting and passing.
The chalk talk will give your son/daughter a chance to interact with my staff and me so they can learn from our playing/coaching experience at the highest level. We will have different hockey related topics each day and have discussions with the players about how they can improve their game.
My program is kept intimate so my staff and I can focus on each athlete and give them the attention they need and deserve.
