Top Shelf Academy Registration is open

Top Shelf Academy will be starting soon!

Off-ice activities will include shooting, stick handling and athletic performance drills.

Athletic Performance: The game of hockey requires multiple skill sets for players to be successful. Players need strength, power, speed (acceleration and deceleration), quickness, stability, and mobility to properly execute on the ice. Combining all of these skill sets into a properly designed training program will help the players develop an armor that will help decrease the risk of injury, as well as improving overall athletic performance. Proper technique of strength training, plyometric, power production, agility, and core stabilization movements, acceleration and deceleration mechanics, soft tissue release mechanisms and stretching modalities will be implemented throughout each week of the summer program. These modes of training will be challenging, fun, and most importantly, age-appropriate to ensure safety.

 Shooting – Players will work on wrist, snap and backhand shots. Emphasis will be on proper technique, quick 

 Stickhandling – Players will work to develop soft hands and quick hands. 

 Athletic Performance – Playing the game of hockey with proper knee bend allows for the player to be more release and developing accuracy and velocity. explosive and change direction more quickly. Box jumps, agility ladders and quick feet activities will be worked into the circuit each session. Activities will be age appropriate, fun and challenging. 

Players will get out of this what they put into it. There are 3 scheduled sessions / week for a total of 18 sessions. The goal will be for each player to get 50 shots, 10 minutes of stick handling and 10 minutes of plyometrics each session. 

Each session will be designed as a circuit to develop each player’s shot, core strength, along with speed and agility. All sessions will be age specific, fun and challenging.
