OSHP At-Home Skills is a tried and tested ONLINE skill development program which will not only help each player stay sharp, but actually improving while they are at home. Our experienced and attentive lead instructors will provide 35 minutes of instruction including direct coaching and feedback while players are put through a series of drills each session. This IS NOT like many at-home sessions flooded with participants who watch a screen the way they would a YouTube clip. Appropriate ratios will be maintained and there will be a both a demo coach and a dedicated instructor whose sole focus is on error detection and correction, and providing positive reinforcement.
Sessions will focus on those skills most conducive to at-home improvement; stickhandling and puck control techniques (both advanced and essential), footwork, balance, agility, and more. Progressions will be done each week which are age appopriate and challenging for each level.
Why 35 minutes vs a traditional 50-minute develoment session?
The answer is simple. In an at-home environment where players are in a set location, 35-minutes allows more than enough time for advanced OSHP instructors to provide valuable coaching AND adequate time for player repetitions, while also maintaining the focus, attention, and energy of all participants. Coaches do not have to worry about all of the distractions that come in larger group settings, or dealing with the vast space that is in play for on-ice development, meaning players spend more time learning and practicing while getting just as much instruction.
U11-U15 (2006-2010) – Monday & Wednesday at 4:15 p.m.
U8-U11 (2010-2013) – Tuesday & Thursday at 4:15 p.m.
It is recommended that all participants have an 8″ x 8″ space or greater to take part in online at-home sessions. Individual equipment needed for each session will be communicated ahead of time, but will include at a minimum: Two hockey sticks (one to be used by the player, one to be used as a prop), a stickhandling ball, an off-ice training puck (or a real puck with an artificial rink-like surface), a water bottle to stay hydrated, and other items which may be used as obstacles to stickhandle around. Players will use Zoom online meetings to take part in each session and are encouraged to have a large screen that a smart phone, i-Pod, i-Pad can be cast upon.
