Our adult hockey camps include many great training programs
Adult Technical Hockey Program 101
This adult power skating and player development program focuses on the technical skills of skating, puck control, passing and shooting. The program is weighted 60% on power skating and 40% on hockey skills. It is ideal for the recreational hockey player who wishes to improve his/her skills.
Although it is presented in a group setting, our drills focus on the needs of the individual. You don’t have to worry about other skaters being more skilled or less skilled; it is a ‘go at your own pace’ program. Our adult power skating lessons start with the basic hockey stance and then progress through a full curriculum of power skating drills and hockey skills fundamentals. You will be coached and given feedback throughout the program, with the goal being to improve your hockey skills. Each adult beginner session will include scrimmage time to practise these new skills.
Note: The only pre-requisite is that you can skate forwards comfortably.
Adult Hockey Calgary Program 201
This technical skills and tactical player development program builds on the skills taught in Program 101 and introduces individual offensive and defensive tactics plus team tactics. This adult power skating program is ideal for the recreational hockey player wishing to improve his/her technical skills and learn more about playing the game.
Program 201 consists of 60% technical skills (give and go passing, one-timer shooting) and 40% tactical play (delays, walkouts, cycling, puck protection, 1-on-1’s, 2-on-1’s, breakouts, face-offs). Each session includes scrimmage practice time.
We would encourage participants on Program 101 to discuss their progress and competence with a Tucker Hockey head instructor prior to registering for Program 201, which is heavily weighted on the tactical components of the game and requires a level of competence in many technical hockey skills, especially skating and passing. In order to feel comfortable doing the drills and benefit from Program 201, participants should be able to skate comfortably with the puck and give and receive timely passes while in stride. Pivoting competently while in motion is a necessity for success. Most of the drills require active skating and passing while interacting with other players.
Adult Hockey Calgary Program 301
This technical skills and tactical player development program expands on Program 201 in terms of technical skills and individual offensive/defensive tactics, group tactics and scrimmage. While the core content is similar to Program 201, it is geared towards players who wish to be challenged, with a greater emphasis on advanced skating agility skills and a higher-paced conditioning program. In Program 301, there is less teaching of technical skills, the instructors will be more demanding and scrimmages are quicker and more intense!
Note: We encourage all players to first complete our Adult Hockey Calgary Program 201 prior to attending Program 301.
