Spring & Summer Skill Sessions

Summer is the time for each player to get better individually and develop skills typically not covered in the regular season.  Players will get a lot of 1 on 1 attention/teaching and repetitions to maximize practice and learning.

Topics to choose from include Skating & Puck Control, Overspeed Skating, Stickhandling & Puck Control, Shooting Skills, Passing & Puck Movement and NEW! Battling & Puck Protection.   Players are able to pick and choose what sessions they would like to attend as well as any combination of sessions.  Discounts are offered based on number of sessions chosen.  All sessions are at Holiday Rinks.

Sign up is first come first serve for all sessions.  See below for details, schedule & descriptions of sessions.

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.  

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 $25/session (savings of $60).  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 Spring/Summer!

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 past.  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.

Skating, Stickhandling & Puck Control Skill Sessions are full ice (~20 players) while all other topics are 1/2 ice sessions (~12 players, Overspeed Skating, Shooting Skills, Passing & Puck Control, Stickhandling & Puck Control, Battling & Puck Protection).  See below for session descriptions.

Skating, Stickhandling & Puck Control Skill Sessions (Full Ice)
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.  Scheduled as 2, 1-hour sessions (back-to-back).  Hour 1 focuses heavily on weight shifting and skating with the puck (inside edge skills).  Hour 2 focuses heavily on crossover & lateral movement work & moves out of crossovers (outside edge skills).  Players have the option to sign up for one or both hours.

Overspeed Skating Skill Sessions (1/2 Ice)
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 & Puck Control Skills (1/2 Ice)
The purpose of the Stickhandling & Puck Control Skills is to isolate and break down stickhandling mechanics and skills.  A major difference between players is their ability to handle the puck.  The difference between these sessions and the Skating & Puck Control sessions, is these sessions focus heavily on stickhandling & puck control skills versus skating with the puck.  Skills in these sessions will be age/level dependent.

_____________________________________________________________________________

Shooting Skill Sessions (1/2 Ice)
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.  Younger shooting skills not appropriate for players who do not have good skating skills or single leg balance.  Skating & balance are vital to shooting mechanics.

____________________________________________________________________________

Passing & Puck Movement Sessions (1/2 Ice)
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! Younger sessions will focus on both parts of passing and efficiency of using both forehand and backhand, finding and seeing passing lanes in multiple ways.  Older sessions will focus on play making ability, puck support skills.  Use of games prevalent.  Players should have a good base of skating & puck control skills for these sessions.

Battling & Puck Protection Sessions (1/2 Ice)

NEW! Research on hockey has shown that 80% of the game is spent outside the dots & near the wall.  A player’s ability to win loose pucks, wall battles and to protect the puck in these areas is vital to a player & teams’ ability to be successful.  These sessions will focus on all the techniques and skills used to win puck battles, pick pucks off the wall, all puck protection skills and most importantly make the next play after the battle.  These sessions are not appropriate for players who do not have good skating base.
