IN-SEASON PROGRAMS

 

IN-SEASON DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMS

The Academy of Hockey is excited to announce our 2016-2017 In Season Development Programs. As you will see, our offerings will shift to skating development. Because our programs are designed to supplement a player’s in-season team schedule as well as adding to an individual players development, we feel structured skating programs will benefit players greatly. Our core Academy Programing will consist of:

  • Player Development Program – Pee Wee, Bantam and Midget aged travel level players
  • Goaltending Development Program – Squirt through Midget aged travel level players
  • Academy Skating Program – Mite, Squirt, Pee Wee and Bantam aged travel level players
  • “Little Academy” Skating & Skills Program Pre-Mite (’12,’11, ’10) aged players

Player Development Program: (2001-2002)

Player Development Program: 2001-2002 Birth Year

The Academy of Hockey’s In Season Development Program will consist of development sessions focusing on a 360-degree, holistic approach to advancing the development of each individual player. Academy of Hockey Development Staff   will lead a group of players through a series of SIXTEEN (16) development sessions with an on-ice emphasis on the Technical, Physical and Mental aspects of hockey.

Included in the development program are:

  • On Ice Skill Development – the skill and situational specific program will consistently test participants. A few of the areas of concentration will be advanced edge control for balance and agility with and without the puck, controlled puck handling leading to more consistent puck possession, body position to ensure the player is at a position of strength either when on the attack or defending, as well as shooting tactics providing deception through puck angle and/or manipulation. The Academy staff believes that these skills translate to the highest-level game.
  • Small Group Training – Deliberate and constructive on ice instruction is essential to skill growth. This program will have a 4:1 Player to Coach ratio or lower each session.

Add on Service: $249

  • Individual Game Video Analysis – the Academy staff will videotape two games of each participant. After a complete breakdown and analysis of the game film, an Academy Development Coach will hold a player/parent evaluation meeting to review the game video and overall performance of the player.
