What will the children be taught on the ice?
We believe that skating is one of the most important skills to master. Our background as professional skaters gives us the knowledge to help you. If you are having trouble with any specific skills? Just ask and we will take the time to focus on your goals. Some of the skills we will focus on are outlined below
- Focus on shooting techniques where all types of shots (wrist, snap, slap & backhand) are taught and perfected.
- Emphasis on checking technique such as battling for the puck in the corners and proper positioning of the players’ bodies when giving and receiving checks.
- During this camp players will improve their body control, agility, reflexes, skating technique and muscle retention skills.
- Instruction in team strategy & tactics which may include: transitions, creating offence off the rush, forechecking, backchecking, defensive responsibilities, breakouts, face-off alignments and positional play.
- Emphasis on offensive and defensive plays in game situations.
