Our Offensive Skills Camp is just over two weeks away!
The focus of this camp is to learn shooting skills, stickhandling in confined spaces, passing (forehand & backhand) along with power skating techniques such as forward and backward stride, edge control, cross-overs, pivots and speed/acceleration. Players will also learn how to use time and space to their advantage and work on some 'dangling' moves to help them finish around the net. This full day camp includes 3 hours of on-ice training and 2 hours of dryland training per day.
July 4th - 8th
8:30am - 3:30pm: Ages 8-10
8:30am - 3:30pm: Ages 11-13

Registration is limited. Register NOW to ensure a spot: http://www.thezonetraining.ca/waterloo/programs/summer-camps

Group training programs on our 110' x 50' ice surface naturally reduces the player to instructor ratio. As a result, players benefit from more individualized instruction and constant attention from the instructors.

Private lessons on full-sized ice surfaces can develop bad habits because players are able to move at a slower pace and use more space on the ice to execute their plays. Private lessons on smaller-scale ice surfaces challenge players to use their time and space wisely. The constraints of the ice surface help the players execute shots and passes quickly and efficiently.

While competing in a 3-on-3 or 4-on-4 game, the players find that skills such as reaction time, stickhandling in confined spaces, and quick release while shooting are inherently developed in a fun and confidence building atmosphere. Each player has more time with the puck on his/her stick in a game on small ice than they would during a regular hockey game on a full-sized ice surface. More time with the puck allows players to develop their puck control skills and play-making abilities over the course of the season! Check out how we compare:

Registration is now available for Waterloo FALL Learn to Play Hockey programs! See below for details.
 
Learn to Play Hockey
 
The 8-week comprehensive Learn to Play programs emphasize fun while teaching basic hockey skills and concepts. Our weekend classes are 50-minutes in length.
 
Level 1 classes are for children who can skate (i.e. take strides with both feet and have some idea of how to turn and stop).  The children in this class learn hockey fundamentals including holding the stick, power skating, shooting, passing, stick handling and agility drills. Each class begins with a fun warm-up and finishes with a 10 minute game. There are 3 instructors on the ice each session (based on a full class of 12 kids). Full hockey equipment is required. Children in our Level 1 Learn to Play Hockey program are typically 3-8 years old. Note: Our instructors may contact you to move your child to a different level if necessary.
 
Level 2 classes are for children who are competent skaters (i.e. can skate forward while carrying a puck, skate backwards, and stop) and possess basic fundamental hockey skills.  Classes include a combination of skill development and an introduction to the rules of the game, along with some basic team concepts. The first half of each session will focus on skill development with regard to skating, shooting, passing, and stick handling. The last half of each session will include controlled game play with instruction. Full hockey equipment is required (view list).   Children in our Level 2 Learn to Play Hockey program are typically 5-9 years old.  Note: Our instructors may contact you to move your child to a different level if necessary.
