We strongly believe that Spring and Summer Training should be dedicated to individual skill development. Skating is by far the most important skill in the game of hockey, and as the speed of the game increases at all levels, the importance of Skating will continue to be the most important skill.
Spring Training Clinics are ten 80-minute sessions and feature 50-55 minutes of our Core Curriculum Power Skating Progressions and 25-30 minutes of specific Stickhandling Moves and Fakes. If the program is a Stickhandling program, we will teach the Power Skating necessary to execute the Stickhandling Moves at full speed, but the curriculum will be heavily geared to Stickhandling.
All Spring programs are limited to 30 players and will maintain a player to coach ratio of no more than 6:1.
Philosophically, we are focused on helping hockey players grow their passion for the game of hockey. Immersing the players in a positive hockey-rich environment and teaching them the most important individual skills will boost their self-confidence and help them grow their passion for the game.
Note: At most Spring locations we offer multiple training days (e.g., Stoneham Arena has a Monday program and a Tuesday program). If you have a conflict on a given day, please feel free to flex into another training session at the same location, but please let Tim know beforehand so that he can manage numbers.
