Aug 05-09, 2019 (Richmond Ice Centre)
- For ALL "READY FOR REP" Atom (2 years experience) or PeeWee, Bantam, Midget Players (3 Years experience)
- ONLY for Players who are currently playing for a REP TEAM or who may be trying out for a REP TEAM in 2019-20 in a Recognised Hockey Association Program
The complexity and speed of these Advanced Sessions are dependent on the age of the players and take into account that they are highly motivated and ready for the challenges presented by this Advanced Program. Each session is carefully designed and created for each specific age group and is designed to dramatically improve each individual player's GAME PLAY SKILLS.
The first session of each Atom and Peewee Program is dedicated to Power Skating, Puck and Shooting Technical Skills.
The second half of the session is devoted completely to Tactical Training and Advanced Game Play. This will bring players of these age groups more information as to what their personal Game Strategy will need to be to be a more effective player and scorer.
The Bantam/Midget Sessions are broken up differently so as to provide more emphasis on a Forward's Tactical Training than Technical Development.
By isolating specific skills we can break down these fundamentals and advance them into the INDIVIDUAL PLAYERS TACTICS SESSIONS neccessary in GAME PLAY SITUATIONS (2ND SESSION).
EACH PLAYER WILL BE TOTALLY READY FOR THEIR TRYOUTS AND THE NEW SEASON

Coach Glenn uses a Progression Format which he feels is critical in the development of Technical and Individual Tactical Skills and the relationship of one to the other.
This new approach of isolating specific Technical/ Tactical movements and by breaking down these fundamentals and developing them and eventually using them during Game Play creates a solid foundation for each hockey player, Atom to Midget.
By increasing the Tempo and Complexity of the use of Technical to Individual Tactical Skills during the week he is able to develop a more rounded and competent hockey player ready to take this learning experience to the most important result
