forehand wrist shot, back hand shot, snapshot, and the most loved “slap shot”. Classes are limited to 2 shooters per hour, maximizing shooting time, whilst allowing sufficient rest time between shooting sets.
This course will cover a range of hockey specific off-ice training techniques and principals, helping players develop knowledge that will enhance
on-ice weaknesses. Become faster, stronger, and more stable skater, which will allow faster progress on your hockey journey.
