Fall 2021 - Player Development Program

 

PERFORMANCE SKATING and EDGE CONTROL FORWARD and DEFENCE POSITIONING SKILLS FUNDAMENTALS GOALIE DEVELOPMENT
Sessions for this program will be focused on proper stride technique while getting better on their edges. Teaching players how to maximize their edges and ability to change direction quicker on the ice. Hockey is a fast game with speed and agility. Skaters will be challenged to increase their confidence on both inside and outside edges.
THIS IS NOT A LEARN TO SKATE PROGRAM. Players registering for this program must have the ability to stop and turn both directions.
This program teaches players awareness of positions for DEFENCE, CENTRE and WING. Small details involved in playing these positions specializing in skills specific to them. As well as working together in all zones on the ice to create offence, puck support and defending the zone 5 on 5. Individual defensive positioning, battle and compete, angling and more.
This is for player’s early development and fairly new to hockey. Just learning how to skate or in the first 2 season of U6 and U7. It is open to newer players in our association up to U11. Players will be divided up into groups of similar skill within the group and challenged to improve their skills in a FUNdamental environment.
Under the design of Pirate alumni, Austin Caktas these sessions will be tailored to all age groups and levels. Whether you are trying it out for the first time or a rep goalie we will be accommodating your needs and making it suitable for your game. Areas we will focus on are: mobility, positioning, proper post-save recovery, visual tracking, stick work, puck handling and game situation awareness. Come on out and improve your game.

 

These skater programs are under the direction of Director of Hockey Operations, Doneau Menard.

LEAD Instructors for the programs are our own great coaches with many years of experience.
