The Academy of Hockey’s Summer Development Programs provide players with the opportunity to focus on their individual game, develop core hockey skills, and build hockey IQ, without the pressure of team games and systems. Our staff will provide each player with the ability to 1) understand a concept through detailed explanation, 2) develop skills through controlled repetition, and 3) build confidence through positive reinforcement and instant correction.
