In this session we focus on skating technique, with the thought that practice makes permanent, but perfect practice makes perfect. Any technical flaw in a skater’s stride acts as a limiting factor in how good that skater can become. Each camper will have his/her forward and backward stride videotaped, with the tape to be used as a learning tool to both highlight the positive and determine the underdeveloped parts of the campers stride.

-- Forward/Backward Strides
-- Explosive Starts
-- Back Power Starts
-- Power Turns
-- Stopping
-- Forward/Backward Crossovers
-- Overspeed Training
-- Edge Development

In this session the emphasis is placed on individual puck skills. Along with the puck skills each day at least one new hockey concept or team skill will be taught. The afternoon session will also feature a daily scrimmage that will allow the camper the opportunity to practice his/her newly acquired skills.

-- Stick handling
-- Shooting (wrist shot, slap shot, backhand)
-- Passing
-- Checking/Angling
-- Cycling/Puck Protection
-- Positioning
-- Attack Zone Triangle
