Pre-Tryout Skill Sessions (Forward & Defense Skills)

Home / Pre-Tryout Skill Sessions (Forward & Defense Skills)

Pre-Tryout Skill Sessions will be run the same as our Forward and Defense Skill Sessions.  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, with a maximum of 16 players total.

Players are able to pick and choose what sessions they would like to attend as well as any combination of sessions.  Players do not have to be a forward or defenseman to attend that specific session.  Players are able to attend back to back sessions and 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.

Discounts are offered based on number of sessions chosen.   All ice sessions are at Riverside Arena (Bud Bakewell).
