Do you hold tryouts for the Machines Academy?
No. There are no tryouts for the Machines Academy training program. Interested students must submit a player application. We draw from a mix of highly motivated and driven AAA, AA and A level players of all ages.
Do you hold tryouts for the Tournament Teams?
We select our teams from Academy players and outside tryouts.
What can my player expect from a Spring Machine session?
The Spring Machine Select Hockey Academy will provide players the opportunity to hone their skills both in on-ice and off-ice training sessions each week. Off-ice training will help reinforce skills practice on the ice and provide technical instruction from experienced coaches. Each on-ice practice will be high-tempo, competitive and fun. Practices will be a mix of station based training and small area games with a focus on a high number of puck touches, application of skills, and recognition of hockey scenarios in a fun, competitive environment.
Is this just another skating camp?
No. In fact, while we reinforce the importance of skating in all we do, the Spring Machines program will focus primarily on hockey skill development outside of skating, including technical skills like skating with the puck, stickhandling and shooting, situational play, offensive creativity, and proper defensive play.
What do you expect from the players?
The program seeks driven athletes and will create an extremely competitive training atmosphere. We believe that competition spurs development, so each practice will push players to compete and give maximum effort each drill. The program will be composed of athletes that bring creativity, work ethic, and individual drive that represents what KNPS strives to develop in our students.
