INTENSIVE SKILLS CLINICS
Intensive Skills Clinics are designed to serve established players and focus on a specific skill or position. Step by step instruction is given with skills broken down into smaller components to help players understand how they can improve and work on the skill moving forward. Skills and concepts are also explained so that players understand where and how they are used in game-like settings.
Sessions can run once a week for four weeks or for multiple days in a row depending on the program. Age recommendations vary by program. See below for upcoming offerings:

Shooting & Goal Scoring participants will learn different forehand and backhand shot types (wrist, snap, slap, flip).. Players will then practice taking these shot types in game-like situations such as point shots, rebounds, one-timers, and tips. This program will also cover goalie fakes and dekes.

Participants will spend the first 30-40 minutes of each session split into small groups based on position with a focus in position-specific footwork, puck skills, and game concepts. Players will then come together and apply what they have learned in drills and small games focusing on the skills covered earlier in the session.
