Schools Out For Hockey

Thursday, November 8th, 2018

9:40 AM – 12:10 PM

Our Thursday Clinic will improve your players hockey abilities through drills that emphasize key skating skills in addition to proper passing and shooting techniques.  Even though school is off, we are going to continue to work hard, and do so in a fun environment.  Players of all skill levels are welcome, and instructors will work to improve each and every player’s individual skill set.

Friday, November 9th, 2018

9:40 AM – 12:10 PM

Our Friday Clinic has been built for all players that are looking to advance. The program is rigorous and physically demanding in order to help players challenge themselves, and those around them, to elevate their games to a higher level.  It will provide each player with the experience of how a player should train on the ice by pushing participants outside of their comfort zone.

Price:  $60 per day

Purchase both days for $100
