Shooting Clinics

 

The Hockey Loft is excited to introduce our newly remodeled shooting clinics. There are three tiers based on skill level and skill development. This enables the player to graduate their skills in an organized learning environment which follows strict skill development protocol. Each player has the option to begin at any tier they would like and advance according on their ability as our staff makes critical assessments on the player’s progression and will advise the player on his or her development progress. (Finishing a class at one Tier does not necessarily graduate the player to move to the next Tier – repetition plus correction perfects the skill)

Cost: $160 + HST

Program Description:

The Hockey Loft is pleased to present Power Skating Boot Camp. This program offers an extensive power skating regimen with a focus on explosiveness and cardiovascular training. Training will take place in The Hockey Lofts state of the art facility and will incorporate training on both the ramp and the resistance trainer; both training aids are unique to and developed by The Hockey Loft. The ramp is an inclined synthetic skating surface designed to develop explosive quick starts and overall skating speed while correcting general stride technique. Recorded at 45 feet in length and set at an 8 degree incline the ramp records the players start, mid-point and finish. This gives both the player and instructor the ability to monitor points of weakness and progression. The information of each run is recorded and saved for future reference.

 

The resistance trainer is a magnetically weighted resistance sled that can either be pushed or pulled to develop skating strength skating strength and skating technique. One can either push the resistance trainer by equipping horizontal bars or put on a body harness and pull the resistance trainer. The resistance trainer tracks the start time, mid-point and finish time of the player all of which is recorded and can be saved for future records and reference. Coaches teach proper fast start technique as well as practical stride correction.

 

Each session runs an hour in length which involves 50 minutes of explosive skating and cardio work as well as work related to other areas of skill development which will be incorporated as breaks between the skating exercises.
