Become a great all-around player with a class designed to teach you the fundamental skills needed to succeed this season!
The Complete Player Development program will teach proper skating habits – designed to make you a more powerful and efficient skater – while also giving you thorough instruction on the proper methods of stick-handling, puck control, shooting, and passing.
Each class begins with drills designed to work on all four edges, which when mastered will allow players to improve agility and speed through an efficient skating stride. Our qualified skating instructors will cover the proper habits for forwards and backwards skating, transitions, crossovers, and tight turns. The second portion of the class will develop the ability to shoot with accuracy, quickness and power, the confidence to maintain and control the puck in every game situation, and the stick-handling techniques needed to take your game to the next level.
We believe that perfection and excellence comes through repetition and as such all subsequent sessions while following the same basic program outline and structure will focus on, with new drills and other small variations, the same core skills and techniques.
*Please note that the IP Complete Player Development Program (held in previous years) has now become the IP Fundamental Skills program.
