Forward Specific Skills Summer Hockey Program
Hi Everyone,
I will be running a Forward Specific Skills Week again this summer. The days will consist of an hour on ice instruction each day, and an hour classroom session in order to teach the strategies that we will be working on while practicing skills on the ice. 

The format will consist of a series of skill stations that allow for maximum repetitions to acquire the correct mechanics, and promote practice to game transfer.

I have been fortunate enough to study these specific skills aspects and work with minor, junior and professional hockey players.

I have been the skills coach for many players that have gone on to play in the NHL, OHL, NCAA and local Junior teams. I have also helped many minor hockey players sharpen their skills and improve their in game habits.

Some Key Concepts that will be focused on are:
 
- Power Skating - lengthening stride, edge work, explosive turns
- Passing Skills - learning how to give and take a pass
- Shooting - Taking a pass in such a way that the player is a scoring or play making threat
- Accepting Rims off a cycle and a potential breakout situation
- Scoring techniques (shot release, rebound/recovery, tipping)
- Small Area Games/Skills - to improve decision training and speed, teach puck protection
- Crossover acceleration, and linear crossovers to separate from a defender
- Manipulating the defender and seeing/feeling where the open ice
- Understanding where to shoot and shot quality - Understanding that not every shot is designed to score, but create offensive opportunities
 
Here is the vital information:
