We offer an elite Hockey Developmental Program for beginning players and have worked to unite the hockey community by forming ONE. We work with our local hockey association and assist all of our families with exploring the options which fit their best interests. We have aligned our Power Skating Skills with USA Hockey American Developmental Model to give our players an opportunity to advance their individual skills in preparation for league play. We encourage players to play other sports to create a well rounded athlete.
Our philosophy is to teach the players and the parent volunteer coaches the correct way to execute hockey skating and puck skills through repetitive motion and touches of the puck. This model of teaching creates muscle memory and instinct in your player. Practicing the right way is how players will be able to enjoy the game at their highest potential. After all, you can’t enjoy playing hockey if you can’t skate, and the best players are always the best skaters. Come see why we continue to be the local leader in developmental programs.
