Skating, passing, shooting, scoring -- we know what it takes to be a great hockey player. Let us help your young athlete.

 

We offer year-round private and semi-private lessons in addition to our youth clinics and Home Ice Advantage youth hockey program. 

 

Positivity and Confidence - While we focus on improving player performance, we provide a positive environment to encourage long-term success and enjoyment. It's simple - if players are enjoying themselves during skill development and at practice, they are going to improve, and have more fun on the ice.

 

Skating - By working on skating and their edges, players are able to feel more stable on the ice. When players feel secure with this stability, skating becomes second nature. If players are able to skate in games and in practice without thinking about it, they are able to focus their attention on game play, puck management, and making those quick decisions to complete a play. We also look at the player's skating style and help them improve to make their strides more efficient and powerful.

 

Puck Management - Teaching players how to get the puck, handle it, protect it, and keep it is essential to game play. We use a progression of drills players need to improve their puck skills. The ability to make a pass is a great skill to have, but what if your athlete could make hard, crisp passes every time, efficiently catch passes, collect bad passes, and be capable of maneuvering with the puck in a small space? Those skills paired with powerful skating strides is the core of a skilled and agile player that every coach will want on his/her team.

 

Shooting and Scoring - Scoring goals and having that perfect bar down is always great. But what about those gritty goals that are scored off the second or third rebound? Our coaches help players create scoring opportunities, shoot to score, and fire the puck while skating at game speed. 

 

Whole Player Development - We see the whole athlete and are trained to recognize the smallest detail that makes a huge difference in a skill. When players are taught the correct way to perform a skill in practice and can master that skill at game speed, he/she will improve his/her performance during games. By utilizing drills that reflect game situations, our athletes' parents see a superior improvement as early as the game after one private lesson.

 

We've worked with players who have had overly negative coaches and after their season was over, they wanted to hang up their skates. This 'coaching style' needs to be eliminated in today's game and it's not because 'kids today are sensitive.' Providing athletes a positive atmosphere builds self-esteem, confidence, and performance.

 

Good habits, tenacity, and focus are key.

 

We can set your player up for success away from the game. Our coaches can give your young athlete exercises and drills to complete at home to increase their skills while preparing for practices and games.
