On Ice Description:




We like to start the day off with edgework, skating, and body movement work. Over our years of teaching and developing elite athletes, we have found that getting the feet under the player is vital to being able to learn new skills that will be stacked on top of the footwork. 


Areas we will cover:


-Forward Edges

-Backward Edges

-Transition Skating (Tight Turns and Pivots)

-Forward Stride


-Weight Transfer 


Camp Focus:


Puck Protection


We have found over the years that puck protection is not a skill where you stand still and hold off defenders. We have developed a teaching progression that will get your player protecting the puck while creating an interior threat to manipulate multiple defenders. Why is this important to learn? This creates more time and space which leads itself to a better playmaking decision for your player.


What will we teach:


-Mohawk Protection

-Attacking Gaps Between Checks

-Cutting Off Hands of Defenders 

-Shooting While Protecting 

-Passing While Protecting 

-Loose Puck Winning The Puck Line

- Early Seals
