Hi Hockey Fans,
We hope you all had a great season and are looking forward to the off season to play other sports, work on your shooting, or just relaxing.
At the Hockey Training Academy, we will also be adjusting our schedule for the off season. We will be cutting back our regular group training hours to 6 and 7 p.m. from Monday to Thursday. We will also be conducting private and semi-private lessons at 5 p.m. from Monday to Thursday. If you cannot make one of those times listed, you can request a different time slot by emailing or calling me directly.
Our Summer Training will begin the first week of August, after the Civic Holiday (August 2nd) and run for 5 weeks (September 2nd will be the last camp day). We will do our training exclusively at the Academy in 2 half day portions. If you would like to stay for the full day, you are welcome to pack a lunch and relax at the Academy from noon to 1 p.m.
Our training will be built on small groups with a focus on the 5 core skills of hockey. Students will get lots of repetition and focus on their skating, puck handling, shooting, and passing. We will also run checking drills to teach the ability to get the puck back and keep it!
Here is the schedule for the day:
8:30-9:00 – Drop off at the Academy
9:00-9:30 – Stick handling warm-up
9:30-10:30 – Group treadmill training & group shooting training
10:30-11:30 – Groups alternate stations
11:30-12:00 – Free time to shoot on radar, stick handle, or mini game
12:00-12:30 – Pick up from the Academy or lunch for full day athletes
The afternoon schedule will be the same:
12:30-1:00 – Drop off at the Academy
1:00-1:30 – Stick handling warm-up
1:30-2:30 – Group treadmill training & group shooting training
2:30-3:30 – Groups alternate stations
3:30-4:00 – Free time to shoot on radar, stick handle, or mini game

Our regular group and private training will begin at 5 p.m. so if you are unable to pick up by 4:30, please notify me ahead of time.
