INTENSIVE SKILLS CLINICS
Intensive Skills Clinics are for female, female identifying, and non-binary players and are designed with a 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. G4H may also bring in special guest coaches for these sessions.
Session length varies by session/coach and can run for one-hour sessions, once a week for multiple weeks, for multiple days in a row, or multiple hours in a row depending on the program. Age recommendations vary by program. See below for upcoming offerings:
2023 Summer Intensive Skills Series
Our 2023 Summer Intensive Skills Series will cover different topics depending on the dates chosen. During the first half of each session players will receive specific instruction on the skill themes of the day and will work on skill execution. The second half of each session will be spent applying those skills in higher tempo drills, competitions, and small games. Each session varies in length, cost, and birth years served and will be led by several "guest" G4H coaches from around the women's hockey community or by G4H Head Coach Meghan Sweezey.
