Skill Development

Unlock Your Potential on the Ice!

Our skill development focuses on puck handling, shooting, hockey awareness, passing, stick skills, angling, and body positioning. Our drills are designed to simulate game-like situations, providing hundreds of puck touches to reinforce essential skills. We emphasize the connection between each drill and real game scenarios.

To build proficiency, we follow a structured approach:

  1. Crawl: Start by understanding the fundamentals of stick, hand, and foot positioning.

  2. Walk: Progress through the drills to build confidence with edge work and puck handling.

  3. Run: Execute the drills at game speed to simulate real game conditions.

This method ensures that players develop the skills needed to excel on the ice.
