“Skills That Translate”

The focus for this session will be to encourage players to utilize “game situational” edge work while transferring power and speed. For example we will stress under-handling pucks. We will also touch on the creativity side of the game so each player can practice those “instinctive & evasive maneuvers”

Together we will maximize the ice time to enhance each player’s “individual skills” along with leading to gain that extra step on the competition.

Fast pace, high repetitions and proper demonstrations leave each player improving dramatically in just 1 ice time with our programs.
