Our Total Skills camp features creative and progressive drills that stress proper skating, shooting, and hockey techniques. This camp covers offensive and defensive strategies taught through a variety of challenging drills. Daily off-ice conditioning sessions focus on increasing speed and heightening agility, while chalk talks cover proper positioning.

WHAT TO EXPECT:

Skating and Edges: Including proper body position, correct use of inside and outside edges, balance and agility so players can get the most power out of each stride.

Stick Handling and Crossovers: Stick handling technique, including proper hand placement, head position and location of puck on the stick. We also cover crossover technique, demonstrating the most efficient use of edges to generate maximum speed and power.

Power Turns and Backwards Skating: Proper body position and edge control while executing power turns so players can quickly and efficiently change direction. Backward strides and crossovers are also covered.

Pivots and Checking: Instruction on transitions so players can smoothly move from skating forwards to backwards or backwards to forwards without losing speed. We also introduce checking – both how to safely give and receive a check – so young players are familiar with this skill once checking becomes a regular part of their game.

Game Situation Confrontational Drills: We teach the game of hockey. Our “Game Situation” drills will focus on the Forward and Defenseman aspects of real game play. Defenseman – angling, gap control, net play, support drills, at the point, odd and even man rushes, pinning and checking. Forwards – winning the battles, attacking the triangle, power moves, tipping, odd and even man rushes, puck protection and checking. These drills will help each player understand the game and teach reaction with confidence. 4 hours of ice each day and 1 hour class room talk.

CAMP OVERVIEW:

  • Players will skate a minimum of 4 hours daily
  • Off-ice conditioning including shooting
  • Chalk talks daily
  • Scrimmages
  • Daily drills
  • Team building games
