Player Development Program: 2003-2004 Birth Years

Player Development Program: 2003-2004 Birth Years


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 – Provide the Academy staff with two full games in HD Video, and our staff will breakdown. 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.
