HOW IT WORKS

When you are ready to dive in, go to the Daily Workout where you'll find a fresh training session that includes stick skills, shooting, and cardio exercises. If you want to train a specific skill, go to the Training Library for drills and exercises to improve your game. Players will quickly notice that the repetition is the key to unlocking skill improvement.

Find a dedicated area in the driveway or basement that gives you enough room to move around and shoot pucks. A flat surface is important for puck handling and for safe movement.

Players shouldn’t rush through the drills – they should be are designed to be done with meaningful action. Don’t just do each day’s requirements to get it over with. Make sure that you are doing each drill correctly by following the tutorials. Mastering the technique will help improve your skills and make the time spent on the challenges worth it.

CATEGORY DRILL NAME DRILL DESCRIPTION
SHOOTING 4 Corners Hit all four corners in only four shots once a day for five days. As you progress, focus on increasing your speed. Switch up the order of the corners to add another layer of difficulty and test your muscle memory.
PASSING Saucer Pass Between opponent’s sticks blocking passing lanes and defenders trying to break-up odd man rushes there are many tactics used by a defender to disrupt a team's offensive strategies. Players who have the saucer pass in their skill set create more options for themselves while on offence.
STICKHANDLING Figure 8 The Figure 8 drill is a great stickhandling drill to improve your puck control skills. It can give you the confidence needed to challenge defenders 1-on-1 or make quick moves around obstacles such as a defender’s stick.
STICKHANDLING X and V The V and X drills are excellent exercises to help reinforce the proper mechanics of your hands when stickhandling.

 

PARENT TESTIMONIALS

"his favorite part has been the variety. He really enjoys the workouts and working on different shots. He noted taking a hundred shots can be repetitive but adding the workouts and different shots each day is more engaging for himself. the reward of points has further enticed his interest. I also like the lessons are age appropriate and if a little complicated, I CAN review with him based on the information provided."
