I hope you will agree that Power Skating is the most important skill in the game of hockey. I share the information below so that you can understand my approach to teaching Power Skating. Please know that my expectation is that your child will be a better skater and have a higher hockey IQ at the end of one of my programs.
Each program will feature eight Power Skating sessions. Each session will be designed to teach a specific Power Skating component. The first 90 minutes of each session will be a progressive series of drills incorporating pucks as needed, and the last 30 minutes of each session will be incorporating pucks and moving at full speed with Stickhandling and Passing.
Our approach is simple. We create a positive, hockey-rich environment that is primarily dedicated to teaching Power Skating. Our pace of play is deliberate and we follow a teaching blueprint:
- explanation of the drill
- demonstration of the drill by an instructor
- players perform drill
- correction of player at individual level
- repeat and add teaching progressions
- move on to the following progression of the drill.
We are always working towards execution of Power Skating movements at top speed. Extremely hands-on approach that values proper explanation and demonstration.
We have designed a progressive curriculum of drills that breaks down each Power Skating movement into its smaller individual components. The drills are accompanied by teaching and instruction that is also progressive, i.e., we tackle the basics of each drill first and then move towards mastery of each drill.
We have found that players of all ages and skill levels benefit greatly from our approach.
100% Money Back Guarantee to any family that enrolls in a Driscoll Skating & Skills program www.driscollhockey.com and does not feel that their child is learning how to be a better skater after two sessions.
