Take Control of the game with two intense hours of on ice each day. The primary focus will be on multi directional transitions and backward skating. Each group will rotate through line and stations drills run by Kurt/Michele and other members of their team. All skating skills on the KNPS teaching wheel will be thoroughly covered.
Specifically, 30 minutes of each day will be dedicated to backwards skating only. Backwards skating leads to better balance and drastically improves players transitions and skating creativity on the ice.
There will be a concentration on functional edge work and application while learning to use the specific body mechanics and gravity to leverage speed. This is a progressive program. Skills will be taught and later applied in drills and skating sequences.
The secondary focus will be on stick handling, passing/shooting, puck control and promoting creativity to our players.
