Summer Hockey School
Full Stride's Summer Hockey School is for boys and girls ages 5 - 14 looking to improve their skills in a fun and encouraging environment. Full Stride's professional coaching staff, along with a group of junior instructors, provide 3 hours of ice time daily. The Summer School will focus on core skills such as power skating, passing, shooting, puck control, puck protection, and more through drills and games. Off - ice training is also included in the Summer Hockey School.
On-ice: Morning on-ice sessions will focus on power skating; the forward and backward stride, edge control, power turns, balance and agility. Afternoon on-ice sessions will focus on puck control and puck skills, shooting, passing and games.
Off-ice: Off-ice sessions will focus on core strength development, reaction time training, plyometrics, balance and agility as well as teamwork development. We will use team work initiatives designed to provide individual and group success.
Equipment: All players are required to wear full hockey equipment during on-ice sessions. Jerseys will be provided. Make sure your player has athletic shoes and athletic clothing for off-ice sessions. Hats and sun screen are recommended. Please bring a water bottle, snacks, and a lunch each day.
