Forward & Defense Skill Sessions (Spring/Summer)

Home / Forward & Defense Skill Sessions (Spring/Summer)

The purpose of Forward & Defense Specific Skill sessions is to educate players on position specific skills, practice those skills and apply those skills to situations.   Players will be split into small groups of 4-6 players based on age and level of play.

Players are able to pick and choose what sessions they would like to attend as well as any combination of forward or defense sessions.  Players do not have to be a forward or defenseman to attend that specific session.  Players are encouraged to learn the skills of all positions and situations from different points of view.  This will not only develop players physical skills but also their overall mental understanding of that position/situations making them a more well-rounded player.  Players signing up should be AAA/AA travel caliber skill level.

 

Cost per single session is $25/player

5 or more sessions price drops to $22/session

9 or more sessions price drops to $20/session

 *Players signed up for Hockey IQ Program, Midget Program, Mite Program or 10 of the small group skill sessions are eligible to attend Forward & Defense Skills at discounted rate of $20/session for any number sessions.
