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:


Game Patterning:


What is game patterning? Teaching players how to move around the ice with and without the puck is a under taught skill. We have studied the best players in the game to put together our very own teaching methods that will get your player moving like a pro! If you are tired of watching your player not understand how to move without the puck this is the camp for you! This program is what we teach to our NHL players! 


What we will teach:


-Zone Entry Patterns

-Offensive Zone Patterns 

-Reload Patterns

-Support Patterns 

-Tracking Patterns 



Small Games:


Our small games will incorporate all the patterns we are teaching. The reason the small games are important is because it will forces recall of what the player has learned in a live contested situation.
