Bantam Spring Program
Core hockey programs are based on the fundamental belief that a player's success is derived from a well planned, properly delivered progression. Our training programs build on the Core fundamentals and over time maximize each skill/system, rather then rushing development and marginalizing each skill/system. Increasing proper repetitions will increase improvement!
The 2018 program will be a 'go' for this upcoming summer. We will have 4 weekend skates in June. All weekends in May are free.
The program is by application only, the player has to be playing at the Bantam AAA, AA, A or PeeWee AA or A to be accepted. I will make the decision if any player below the rep will be allowed into the program.
This program is about Development!
We at Core Hockey are not concerned about the score or who scores the goals. We are all about being detailed, teaching, team work and promoting life lessons!
If your young hockey player wants to be successful in his hockey career and life, its not about the end results. Its about the "process" a person must take to be his very best. This "process" includes being a great team mate, selfless, passionate, being challenged and handling adversity. Like we tell the players, you must Be Better Every Day!
This program is designed around proper "character" traits, listening skills and details. When you mix these three traits together you develop more passion, focus and execution!
The spring program is much different then a normal spring hockey program. We will teach individual and team tactics through the week. Our expectation and evaluation will happen during each Saturdays game. The score will not be posted, the goals and assists will not be recorded, the only evaluation of the player is how did he implement what he learned that week!
Today's game is about being able to play in all 3 zones, being a 200 foot hockey player. Hockey is not about being selfish, a 'me' mentality, being a one zone hockey player. This spring program puts the development in the forefront, learning to anticipate, build game awareness and be better every repetition/shift.
Our expectations will be high and we will expect the players to be prepared to be their best for every ice session.
