High Performance Skills Program

This intense Elite camp is strictly for players who strive to be challenged each day by complex drills, fellow elite players and the high expectations of our experienced coaching staff. Drills are designed for athletes who have already mastered the fundamentals. We utilize advanced training techniques, including on-ice over speed resistance training, and off-ice accelerated conditioning geared toward building speed, strength and endurance, to push players to their full potential.   

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. 

Puck Handling, Passing and Shooting: Stick handling and passing technique, including proper hand placement, head position and location of puck on the stick.

Game Situation Confrontational Drills: We teach the game of hockey. Our “Game Situation” drills will focus on the offensive and defensive aspects of real game play. These drills will help each player understand the game and teach reaction with confidence.
