Elite Scoring Clinic: These skills are too important to get them all in in just 1 week!   


July 10th and July 11th:

Defensive Clinic (Defensemen & Forwards):  This Clinic will focus on all aspects of defense for both defensemen and forwards. Some of the skills that will be focused on are gap control, containing the puck carrier, stick placement, defensive skating, transition, and defensive fundamentals.

July 17th and July 18th:

Battle Drills and Small Area Games: One of the best way of developing Elite level hockey skills is small area games. Used by every NHL team, these games are the best way to replicate real game action and situations. Small Area games and Battle Drills develop both offensive and defensive awareness in different situations that the coaches can create.
