Our Hockey program combines four components:

Skill development includes power skating, stick handling, game situations and conditioning. We also have an excellent goaltender development program. Hockey IQ prepares players and goalies for the intelligence needed to perform at high speed, focusing on being aware on the ice, reacting to game situations, and using skills to find open ice and make plays and making the save the team needs. 

We recognize the needs of athletes to perform at the level they require need discipline and structure to succeed with conditioning and the mastery of their physical preparedness will heighten success and keep them ready for the late stages of the game. Having fun, playing the game with enjoyment and excitement with a focus on character building will enhance the development of the complete athlete.
