The Nipigon Elks annual hockey school is designed to provide your child with a combination of hockey skills and fitness to prepare them for the up-coming season. We consider hockey skill development the primary focus of our hockey program from IP1 to Pee Wee age. As your child progresses through Pee Wee to Bantam and Midget, the focus will switch to a greater emphasis on systems, positioning, and preparing for higher level play. This approach is consistent with Hockey Canada guidelines for player development.
This year the hockey school will be a combination of focussed time over the weekend of October 4-5 combined with daily hockey development over the week of October 6-11. The majority of skills required for hockey (passing, shooting, skating) require many hours of repetition to perfect and these skills are continually practiced right up to, and including, the professional level.
The first annual hockey school will provide an intense focus on skill development to kick start their mastery of essential hockey skills. A combination of on ice practice and dry land practice will be used and each session will be tailored to your child’s age and skill level.
Each child will receive 4 hours of ice time and the possibility of dry land practices over the weekend (Oct. 4-5) ─ the option of dry land practices will be up to individual coaches. During the week of Oct. 6-11 each child will receive 1 hour of ice time and the possibility of dry land each day. This will be a total of 9 hours of on-ice development complimented by off-ice practices where possible.
When your child shows up for their first practice time, they will be given any additional information regarding optional dry land practices. Please make sure your son or daughter has proper running shoes and athletic clothing for off-ice sessions.
Thanks. We apologize for the short notice in advance and we look forward to starting off the new hockey season!
Hockey school is free for those registered for the upcoming season with Nipigon Elks Minor Hockey.
