Hockey Lessons – Development & Training

Level 1: Jr Wolf Pack Starter Skating Program      
     

For players that have never skated or are very new to skating. 

Skating is the most important skill required to properly execute the other 4 major skills (stickhandling, passing, shooting and safe checking) and enjoy playing the most enjoyable sport there is for life. This program is designed to give all young starter hockey players the essential skating foundation to progress into the renowned HE Parks Development Program. Getting it right from the beginning is very important. Our superb professional instructors will ensure keen students enjoy great progress in a fun environment. Players are placed in appropriate training groups within the lesson. All players must wear at least a bike helmet.

Level 2: Wolf Pack Hockey Skills Development

For players that have graduated from Level 1. Full equipment hockey skill training.

This renowned training is for players 4-14 years,
where the skating skills enable the learning and execution of the other 4 major skills (stick handling, passing, shooting and safe checking). Although the focus on the program remains the mastering of the “Sumo System” of skating it also includes training in stick work and small area games. The goal is to prepare players to advance to joining a Wolf Pack hockey team. Players are to supply USA Hockey approved hockey helmet with full face mask and a stick (purchase low-cost stick that comes
up to nose without skates and has a minimal curve).
All other equipment is available up to certain sizes. Price for both days. (4-14 years – Triphahn)

Level 3: Jr Wolf Pack Fall 11 Under Hockey League  

Advanced training in preparation for league team play.

Players at this age are sponges and improve faster than any age, thus we like to ensure we are giving each passionate player the best chance to progress while the ability to improve is at its best. The key thing is that players play at a level that is going to be challenging but also allows the player to be involved and engaged. We can assure that our skill development is second to none anywhere we have a very strong coaching staff dedicated to this age. A player that takes the time to focus and follow the step by step Sumo system of perfecting the 7 elements of skating and applying them to the 4 other major skills will develop a solid foundation in this sport. The best skills equate to the best team play. Our dedicated Goaltending Academy also enables goalies to grow and improve tremendously. (5-8 years – Triphahn)
