Adult Skills and Scrimmage
The Adult Skills and Scrimmage is open to any adult player looking to increase his/her individual skill set and overall ice hockey knowledge. This program is instructed by certified USA Hockey coaches and features:
One hour and fifteen minutes of on-ice instruction. The first half of each session will focus on individual skill development, including power-skating, stickhandling, passing, and shooting. This will be accomplished through a series of fun and engaging drills and small area games emphasizing these hockey basics.
The second half will be a full scrimmage with bench coaches who will illustrate situational and strategic concepts and field questions. Points of emphasis include proper positioning and spatial awareness, face-off procedure and strategy, defensive zone coverage and break outs, power plays and penalty killing, offensive zone puck possession, and control, back checking and forechecking, and much more.
