Edge work is the base for all skating skills. Areas we focus on: inside edges, outside edges and flats. We work to develop power, increased speed and turning ability.
Hockey continues to get faster and the difference can be attributed to a great stride extension. Areas we focus on: stride extension, stride angle, arm swing, knee drive, and recovery.
Change of directions can be life or death and it all starts with crossovers. Areas we focus on: maintaining posture, head placement, hip movement, using inside and outside edges, and puck control.
Stickhandling & Puck Control
As players get bigger, the space you have to operate gets smaller. Moving in and out of these areas can be challenging and getting into a place where you can shoot can be even harder. Areas we focus on: range of motion, creativity, agility, puck protection, deception, and change of skate pace.
You know what's better than scoring? A great assist and it starts with great passing. There are a wide range of passes that a player can utilize during a game such as Saucer Pass, Backhand Pass, Drop Pass, Tic-Tac-Toe Pass, No-Look Pass, Centering/Slot Pass, Stretch Pass, Cross-Ice Pass, and more. Areas we focus on: puck control, using different parts and sides of the stick blade, puck release, follow through, and receiving a pass.
Few are born with a great shot and it takes years and thousands of pucks to become the next Ovechkin. We will teach you to master the Wrist Shot, Snapshot, Slapshot, Backhand Shot, and Deflections/Redirections. Areas we focus on: improving power, mastering release, honing accuracy, changing shooting angles, and when to use what shot - high percentage shooting.
The game continues to evolve and your skills have to evolve with it. Areas we focus on: forecheck, neutral zone, trap/forecheck, offensive pressure, defensive pressure, offensive/defensive strategy, penalty kill, powerplay, breakouts, and more...
Conditioning can be worked on off the ice but at some point it needs to be transitioned and applied on ice. We work to bridge that gap with our programs. Areas we focus on: short, explosive bursts of speed, rest-to-work ratio, and conserving energy.
The On-Ice program is the culmination of all the work we do off-ice in the facility and bringing on to the ice and applying it to your game.
