Offensive Zone Play

The fastest object on the ice and the most prized possession is the puck. Goals are rarely scored on an individual effort; goals are almost always a product of some form of a pass. Hockey is the fastest game on earth and the ability to make split second decisions is crucial. This program will focus on: Passing (variety of drills and passing techniques both stationary and with movement, discussing lanes and other technical thought processes), zone entries (catch and carry, chip off wall, area passes, delays, cross and drops, net drives, etc.), wall work – (opening-up for plays, receiving rimmed pucks and making plays, puck protection and battling), low attacks – (plays off cycles, low plays, net drives, evasive techniques), net front – (goal scoring specific drills emphasizing elevation of pucks in tight, hand-eye drills from point shots and mid-air pucks, creating space and goal scoring tips). Full hockey equipment is required.

Puck Skills

Puck Skills
The puck skills program is meant to develop multiple aspects related to the handling and movement of the puck. This class will provide sequential advancement of ability from the very basics to elite dependent on the players’ current state. With the correct drills the player develops new dexterity in their hands as they are asked to put the puck in new positions of reach, with different areas of the blade, and with new levels of speed. This also increases overall stamina in the muscles used in these hand skills. As the player advances in ability, they will be introduced to different situational moves such as 1 on 1 plays off the rush, out of corner, opening up shot lanes etc. Overall, the player develops a completely improved feel for the puck as the connection between their hands, stick and puck is dramatically increased. Full hockey equipment required.
