Ice Hockey Academy Term 3

Monday 15 July – Sunday 22 September

ABOUT

Learn to play ice hockey over three comprehensive units:
Skate the Game focuses on developing hockey specific skating skills such as balance, forward and backward skating, starts, stops, and working on basic edges.

Play the Game 1 focuses on more advanced skating skills such as forward and backward crossovers, tight turns, forward-to- backward transitions and pivots. Play the Game 1 introduces players the basic puck handling techniques such as grip width, mechanics of bottom and top hand on the hockey stick and basic shooting techniques (sweep, wrist and backhand shot).

Play the Game 2 is where all the skills you have acquired are applied in a more advanced environment. We focus on individual offensive, defensive and small group tactics. We have recently changed the content of this program and can now recommend this to anyone who is currently playing in Div 1 or lower. Our coaching staff will ensure the focus will be specifically on individual & small group tactics that require the ability to perform fundamental skating skills.

Ice hockey lessons are available for both children and adults. Ice Hockey Academy is suitable for children aged 4+, however there can be exceptions. Things to consider are:
