The People

Elite Coaching Staff Focused on Individual Player Development

Hockey is a highly-skilled sport that requires a high level of dedication, perseverance, and enthusiasm to grow and develop.  Each player’s hockey journey is a unique path toward a goal.  To make a significant improvement takes a lot of time, practice, and a strong motivation to succeed.

Our coaching philosophy starts with accurate skill demonstration with clear and concise explanations.  With a patient teaching style, we focus on skating skills and development, progress on systems for the in-game experience, skill development (and more importantly) teamwork on and off the ice.
