First and foremost, we are dedicated to providing the best training for our athletes so they have the tools to propel their skills both on and off the ice. Our P3 and Precise Hockey Training systems provide high quality specific training for athletes and teams.

  • During the Skating Skills Session we will focus on edge command and stride to maximize your short, long and overspeed skating.
  • During the Developing D men Sessions; transitions, angles, backwards skating, and attack on offense all specific to Defensemen will be our focus.
  • During Shooting Sessions we will challenge players outside their comfort zones with tactical scoring techniques. Changing angles, shooting in stride, scoring more goals is the ultimate goal here.
