Personal Player Development

How do players get better? 

  • Repetition
  • Engagement
  • Individual Attention

Wheelhouse Hockey has developed a skill development program for players looking to develop their game and play at the highest levels. 


Individual Video and IQ Training

Game Analysis - Wheelhouse Hockey will provide a video analysis program for players to help take their game to the next level.  It is no secret that film is an important part of learning.  Players will submit games and receive a breakdown with a voice overlay.  This allows players to watch multiple times and process the information better.

We will break down skills necessary to excel in the game.  We will look for decision making and the techniques needed to execute in each situation.   Our focus is to increase IQ and give you the tools to succeed.

Weekly Teaching Clips (Gold Video Only) - From October to May, our coaches will provide NHL game clips to reinforce skills or concepts that we are working on during the season.  Clips are added throughout the week as plays develop through the season.

360 Development

The most comprehensive Player Development Plan in the area!

Our 360 Coaching Program is the most comprehensive private coaching program in the area.  We combine the on ice skills development with the Video and IQ Training.  Both programs are integrated as we develop an on-ice program to work on the areas of the game discussed in the video sessions. 

We will look at the whole player to determine strengths and weakness and help players play to their skill sets.   We are not attempting to work outside of your current coach.  We will work within the structure and teach players how to excel in their current environment by developing skills and decision making that translate to the game.

Unlimited Skills - Attend any age appropriate skills sessions in our Skills Lab, Pre-Tryout, Spring Training or Summer Academy.  We offer close to 200 hours of ice a year.  

Members Only Clinics - Members Only skates will typically have 1-3 players per coach maximizing repetition, engagement and attention to detail. 

Video and IQ Training - Players will receive game analysis and breakdowns in addition to weekly teaching clips.

Zoom Meetings - Players have the option to sit down with our coaches once a month and meet about his or her development plan and answer questions about how to move forward.  These meetings are not required but are recommended.

Career Counseling - Check in with coaches to get advice on what to do next.  We are not a placement service, but we are a sounding board to help you discuss options available to you.  

This program is designed for the high level player looking to take his or her game to the highest level.
