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:
-Transition Skating (Tight Turns and Pivots)
Scoring goals requires many skills and after studying more than five years of 5v5 goals, we have created a teaching curriculum that will help players put the puck in the back of the net more frequently.
Areas we will cover:
-One Touch Shot
-Net Front Dekes
-Net Front Tips
-High Ice Tips
After we teach these skills we will put them in game like patterns so the players can feel how the skill would work in a game. This visual will speed up the practice to game transfer because the players will have the knowledge of when to use the tool.
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:
-Attacking Gaps Between Checks
-Cutting Off Hands of Defenders
-Shooting While Protecting
-Passing While Protecting
-Loose Puck Winning The Puck Line
- Early Seals
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
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.
