CORE represents the standard of "Excellence". The expectation at Core Hockey Training, we will provide a  winning performance in every session. "Excellence" is what we will achieve with each player, leaving them with more knowledge and a passion to improve their Core Skills!

The Meaning of the 'C': It stands for what we believe in, Character, Commitment and Courage. These three traits are vital for a player to improve their CORE skills. The player must have the character to know he/she can always improve their skills no matter how good they might be at the time. They must be committed to practicing, and understanding the importance of proper technique. The player must have the Courage to know they will make mistakes, and if they stay positive and focused, their skills will become better every day!
