TUESDAY HOCKEY SENSE CLINIC
Tuesday 4:20-5:20PM@ Chelsea Piers CT - BIRTH YEARS 2010-2004
Hockey Sense is not something you are either born with or born without. It is developed by being exposed to situations and small games that require quick decision making. CJR coaches will help players process the game and challenge them through unique games and drills.
TUESDAY & THURSDAY MITE/SQUIRT TOTAL SKILLS CLINIC
Tuesday 4:00-4:50PM@ Chelsea Piers CT - BIRTH YEARS 2015-2009
Players will work on all skills during these clinics. Skating, edge work, stick handling, shooting, passing, hockey sense andsmall area games will all be taught. Our CJRprofessional coaches will push these players to improve in all areas.
WEDNESDAY POWER SKATING CLINIC
Wednesdays 4:20-5:20PM@ Chelsea Piers CT - BIRTH YEARS 2012-2004
Skating is the most important skill for all players. Proper skating mechanics are a must havefor any hockey player to continue to develop. Players will learn about stride efficiency, edge work, body positioning, and balance and how to apply it to create maximum power and speed. CJR coach Bobby Pauls will incorporate his knowledge of off ice training through Athletic Republic and Bluestreak to help players understand what it takes to improve speed, power and footwork.
THURSDAY ANGLING, BODY CONTACT, CHECKING CLINIC
Wednesdays 4:20-5:20PM@ Chelsea Piers CT - BIRTH YEARS 2009-2004
Hockey is a physical game. And just like skating, passing, stick handling and shooting require practice and skill development, so does body contact and body-checking. Knowing how to properly receive a check is as important as knowing how to give one. A player going into the boards with the wrong type of body position can often end up suffering consequences. For the younger players angling can be considered the first line of defense for a player as body and stick position are important in checking without making contact.
