Hockey Clinics

We offer clinics on all aspects of hockey at both the team and Association level. You help us define your requirements. We design a clinic to fit them.

A trademark of our work with your team or Association is the care we take to involve your coaches.

Close involvement ensures a knowledge gain for your coaches. It helps us better understand specific problems they may have. Respectful input from an outside party will often help a coach revitalize a team's chemistry.

Some of the specialized clinics we offer are:

Skating clinics focus on acceleration, agility, balance, maneuverability, speed, and strength.

Shooting clinics include work on wrist, snap, slap, and backhand shots. The focus is on power, accuracy, quick release, shooting in motion, one-timers, deking, and positioning.

Puck Handling clinics focus on stick handling, puck control at high speed, puck protection, passing, one on one play, deking, and corner play in offensive and defensive situations.

Checking clinics focus on both receiving and giving a check with particular attention on the player having balanced position. These sessions will also cover stick checks, proper use of stick to control your man, one on one situations, angling, delaying, containment, and pinning.

Goaltenders clinics focus on the basics of goaltending. We pay particular attention to experience level and tailor drills that present an appropriate challenge for each individual. Young goaltenders need more attention than they usually receive and we pride ourselves on the programs we have assembled for them.

Tactics clinics focus on the elements of team play: breakouts, defensive zone coverage, offensive attack, cycling in the offensive zone, power play, penalty killing, checking.

Coaching clinics focus on motivational and teaching skills. They include both on and off ice sessions and are customized to meet the needs of specific Associations.

If your Association is asking these questions:

  • are we a new Association that needs a sound organizational structure?

We can help you find the answers.
