When: February 24, March 24th
Who: All players are permitted
Overview: PUCKS, PUCKS and more PUCKS!
Proper technique for shooting and stickhandling will be reinforced to improve upon each player’s efficiency and overall effectiveness with the puck. The program will be broken down into three main areas:
Stick handling—A player’s ability to handle the puck in all situations dictates their ability to make plays within a game. We will expose players to different puck carrying based scenarios; placing a large emphasis on small area movements, deceptiveness with the puck, puck protection, handling the puck in traffic and understanding the cause/effect these movements can have in creating additional time and space. The small area ice surface at CHDC provides the perfect environment to promote the teaching of these skills
Shooting—Reinforcing proper technique and refining shooting strategies to create more opportunities will be in the forefront of this area. Players will be introduced to tactics and techniques to help improve accuracy, release and power output while being educated on how these techniques can be applied
Game Application—Knowing the techniques that go into executing a skill is great… but how does that apply in a game? Our coaches will place an emphasis on not only educating players on how to perform a skill but also how it can be applied in a game
