Our training has translated to proper faceoff technique and fundamentals that will ensure immediate and prolonged success at the faceoff position.

Additionally, students will be introduced to and challenged to master core fundamentals, advanced moves and techniques, counters, disruptions, anticipation tactics, proper footwork, appropriate body positioning, tie-up strategy, and situational IQ.

Coaches (Free of charge) - Our clinics are always open to coaches, free of charge. We allow coaches to take notes, record video, and ask questions during/following the event.  This is a great way for coaches to get right in on the action, learn from the staff, reinforce what their players learn, and further educate themselves.
