Long term player development designed for the individual.   These are not your one-size fits all hockey camps.   Expect individual attention and individual analysis that will allow you not only to improve, but to measure that improvement.   Your only competition is you.  We will give you the means to measure how far and how fast you are improving.

We teach our athletes that doubts and fears can only hold them back.  Once they step inside the rink there is no fear and there is no doubt.  Make mistakes and learn from them.

If you would like more information regarding our process or to sign up as a group or individual, please contact us.

Development Programs

We create great people.  We happen to teach hockey.

We want you to succeed and we will take the same time and effort to make that happen for you as we do with our NHL clients.   Our instruction methods are surprisingly inexpensive and incredibly effective.  We use the same process with young athletes that we use with our NHL clients.

Congratulations to Lacey Clement, Jerika Spry and Mackenzie Tyner on being invited to the Harvard Recruitment Combine 2019.  Hard work and great attitudes are paying off.

2019-2020 Winter Season Programs

Starting October 2nd, 2019 our programs will be moving to the Quinte Sports and Wellness Centre.  We are excited to have access to this facility, including it’s meeting rooms where we will be providing recruitment, scholarship, mental training and long term development planning sessions based on the programs being run by the Vegas Golden Knights, Nashville Predators and Anaheim Ducks.

What’s On This Week?

High Performance / Long Term Development

Shooting, Powerskating and High Performance training in one package!

2-3 instructors at every session.

Our Shooting clinic, PURE Powerskating and High Performance practice to game translation program are blended together and built on on a long term development model.

Each session will include aspects of each of our three core programs allowing us to blend the skills being learned into challenges that translate directly into measurable game results.

Each challenge is geared to the individual with players working on different skills and blends within the same challenge patterns.

Players must have good fundamental skating skills.   Contact us if you are concerned about your child’s ability to participate in this program.

Video Analysis

Our on-ice programs provide video analysis, both on the ice and online to help participants improve.   Timely feedback is the key to improvement.

Bettering yourself doesn’t stop just because you leave the rink.   We accept video (1 min or less) of your shooting or puck handling practice.   Using the same process and software that we use with our NHL clients we will help you improve your game.

We can also help you by viewing your game video.    What skills should you be working on and why?  Improving tactical and strategic awareness are game components that can only be evaluated properly in a game situation.

All Pricing is in Canadian Dollars and includes HST. 

  • Video Analysis (shooting, puck handling)
    • $25 each
