Spring Hockey Prospects

Spring Hockey Prospects -- players have 4 different types of training available every week. Choose as many sessions as you want!

For players who are currently enrolled or have completed Learn to Play or Nitros, we encourage you to enroll in the "Intro to Hockey Prospects". 

4 Training Sessions Available:

For the skating session, players will strictly work on the skating part of their game. This session will include many challenging power skating movements, combined with balance and edge work drills, as well as mastering some of the basics needed to be an elite skater. The sessions will progress to overspeed drills, combined with change of direction skills, and game-like skating. 

Offensive Tactics/Puck Control and Protection/ Stickhandling skills (heads up hockey)/Scoring/Passing
This session will help all players develop confidence when the puck is on their stick. We will work on protecting the puck, handling pucks on the walls, skating with the puck while having your head up, as well as passing and scoring with efficiency. This session will bring players out of their comfort zone, but ultimately challenge them with game-like skills that are commonly used to create offense. 

Battle/Compete/Body Contact*
This is NOT strictly a checking session. In this session the players will work on proper angling and game-like scenarios that require a high compete level, and a relentless mindset.. Small area games, tight battles, angling drills, as well as learning how to compete and react on the walls. This session will be intense and very important to learn how to safely battle and compete efficiently. 

In the game of hockey, it's a huge advantage to be in better shape than your competition! This session will cover a handful of the skills from the other sessions, but with a conditioning touch. We will work on skills such as backchecking, defending fast with a good stick, and skating at high speeds with the puck on your stick. Of course, we will challenge the athletes with professional quality conditioning drills that mirror important hockey habits.

LTPH Graduates (for any participant currently enrolled in LTPH, or that has completed at least 8 classes of LTPH in 2022) - Congratulations! You are ready to move on to Intro to Hockey Prospects.
