Develop into a dominant defender with this program designed specifically for defensemen!

On-ice sessions will focus on the key skills of backwards skating (quick starts, crossunders and speed control), pivots, transitions, lateral mobility, evasive maneuvers, keep-ins, quick-release shooting, first-passes, decision-making, shooting` and passing in-motion, and making plays under pressure.

Instruction will be delivered in both small group and full ice settings. High-repetition station work, small area games and end-zone (defensive and offensive) game-situational drills will all be utilized throughout the program.
