Nichols Small Rink will have around 12 players per session.  All sign up is first come, first serve.

**SIGN UP FORM IS AT VERY BOTTOM OF PAGE**

NOTE: If the date or time of the sessions you are interested is NOT listed on the sign-up form, then those sessions have been filled.


Age Groups:

YOUNGER = Mite, Squirt, Pewee Minor (2011 – 2016 birth years)

**Note these skill sessions are not appropriate for beginner level players.  Email mark@markzarbohockey.com if any questions about this.

OLDER = Pewee, Bantam, Midget (2011 – 2004 birth years)

Please contact us if any questions on age groups!


1 – 6 sessions price is $25/session

7 – 11 sessions price drops to $22/session  (12% discount)

 12 – 15 sessions price drops to $20/session   (20% discount)

16 or more sessions price drops to $18/session   (28% discount)


Flexible Player Sign Up!

Players are able to pick and choose the sessions they would like to attend as well as any combination of sessions.  Discounts are offered based on number of sessions chosen.  See above for discounts and costs.  Sign up form is at the VERY bottom of the page.

Family Multi-Player Discounts!

Families signing up multiple players up for skill sessions can add the total number of sessions signing up for together.  This will get them to per session discounted rates faster.  Example if a family has 2 players and sign each up for 6 sessions for a total of 12 sessions, the cost of each is $20/session and not $22/session (savings of $24).  In addition, if 1 player in a family is eligible for an advertised discount to another program then all players in that family are eligible for that same discount to the other program for that season.

Sign Ups Add Together Throughout Season!

If you sign your player(s) up for sessions to start the season and then decide to add more later sessions later and it puts you into another discount tier then that new discounted rate would apply to all sessions, even if some of those sessions have already passed.  This new discount would be taken into account on the new total.  Example, if you original signed your player up for 8 sessions ($22/session, $176 total) and then add 8 more sessions at another time, it would now be 16 total sessions ($18/session, $288 total – $176 previous paid = $112 balance).

Note, the adding together of sessions only lasts for that season of dates and resets each new season.  In addition, if a player cancels sessions, then the cost per session would revert to whatever discount tier is appropriate per session.

School Holiday Camp Discounts! 

Players signed up for 10 or more skill sessions are eligible to attend any or all school holiday camps for the discounted rate of $35 each (school holiday camps normally are $40 each).

NOTE: This discounted rate will NOT show up on the confirmation invoice email sent after sign up.  It will be taken off your total after sign up form is received and reviewed.  Our system is unable to automatically apply discounts across different programs.  We will email you to confirm the discount and new total if this discount applies to your sign up!

Overspeed Skating Skill Sessions
The purpose of overspeed/skating sessions is to push players outside their comfort zone with edge control, change of direction skating skills (stop/starts, pivots), quickness and lateral movement skills both with and without the puck.  The game of hockey is all about change of direction, lateral movement, strength and efficiency of players on their skates.

___________________________________________________________________________

Stickhandling, Skating & Puck Control Skill Sessions
The purpose of the Skating, Stickhandling & Puck Control Skill Sessions is to challenge a players puck handling ability while skating.  These sessions will dive into a wide variety of moves/dekes and skills that involve skating with the puck.  These sessions will be very similar to the COVID Summer Skill Session practices previously.

_____________________________________________________________________________

Shooting Skill Sessions
The purpose of the Shooting Skill Sessions is to teach proper shooting mechanics as well as challenge a player’s ability to get shots off quickly and efficiently.  To be a good shooter you have to be able to shoot the puck from anywhere at any time using either leg, forehand or backhand, all types of shots (wrist shots, snap shots, slap shots), little to no setup of the puck, one timer or catch & release, shooting in stride or out of crossovers.  Skills in these sessions will be age/level dependent.

____________________________________________________________________________

Passing/Puck Movement Sessions
Passing is one of the most underrated skills in hockey.  Players will be challenged in both giving and receiving passing in a variety of ways and situations.  A play is only as good as a pass given and a pass received. A team is only as good as their ability to make and execute plays! Sessions will focus on both parts of passing and efficiency of using both forehand and backhand, finding and seeing passing lanes in multiple ways.
