Next date --- to be announced
One hour skills session followed by 30 minute 'controlled scrimmage'
Skills session will be split into 2 groups, lower level and higher level
Focus is skating, puck-handling, passing, shooting and more skating.
Scrimmage portion of the program will be 'controlled',
where play will be stopped and an instructor will explain breakout plays,
defensive coverage and proper positional play.
There will also be coaches on each bench, reinforcing strategy during shift changes.
This is a program meant for beginner and recreational players,
but all players can benefit from the extra ice time.
The program will be mostly skating(front & backward),
with emphasis on cross-overs and improvement of the basic stride.
Also stick handling and shooting drills, which will attempt
to improve the players balance on her skates and work
to improve weight distribution, to get the most out of every stride and shot.
Please confirm your attendance by email
and call if you have any questions.
Let us know how we're doin!! Send a message to the guestbook!!
In 1927, a goaltender named Elizabeth Graham,
decided that her nose, eyes, and cheekbones were worth protecting
and donned a wire mask-
32 yrs. prior to Jacques Plante’s decision to wear a mask in the NHL!
Feedback: Give us your thoughts on the progress of the hockey school

Our focus has always been on individual skills.
Do players want to work on positioning, break-out plays etc.
Let us know!!!!
Now in its twelfth year, our women's hockey school has introduced hundreds of women to hockey in a more relaxed atmosphere than playing in a league. When they do decide to join a league, we hope they will remember us.
