Power Skate   
The first 15-20 minutes of each practice will be designated for power skating. The main focus of this clinic is to teach the player about balance, agility, speed, and coordination. Each player will undergo a series of straightaway drills along with several change of direction drills. The goal is to develop each player’s core skating ability while providing feedback that will help to develop speed, quickness and agility. Based on the coach’s discretion, pucks may be used in this clinic.

Puck Skills  
Throughout the three-day clinic, we will teach players how to handle the puck in open ice as well as through traffic. This clinic will teach players how to manipulate another player or a goalie while maintaining their speed. We will also focus on core passing, shooting, and puck protection skills. The class will utilize straightaway drills as well as station-based training. Goalies are able to attend the clinic at no cost.

Translatable Skills
Our goal is to not only teach players fundamental skills while developing hockey sense and instinct but also to show how these skills translate to a game situation. The goal is to teach players the fundamentals, then have players use their instinct with the fundamentals. The final stage is going solely off instinct and allowing the player’s skill shine without thinking about proper technique.

*Skaters must wear full equipment to each skills clinic. The clinic dates and times are subject to change based on enrollment.
