Skating topics will work to have players become more balanced and understand effective use of their skating through detailed instruction. Puck skills will work towards players being more confident with the puck so they can control the play and help create offense for their team. We will also work on drills that incorporate concepts based on position to help players learn about details for forwards and defensemen. Topics such as timing, support, breakout options, and offensive zone entries will be addressed.
