AAA/AA - 2004/2005


The Hockey Department's Elite Skills Development Program is designed for motivated hockey players looking to maximize their skills development during the busy season. This program is balanced with both European and North American influences designed to massively increase overall puck control skills, shooting skills, confidence with the puck and develop the specific areas needed for the next level. Mike Knight, with his professional playing and teaching experience, as well as having worked with NHL skills coaches & players, has perfected a skills program that will provide the player's with guaranteed results. 


This development program has the player in mind and is also a progressive program where new skills are learned and/or built upon. Every drill will challenge the players to get out of their comfort zone, keep their mind and body in sync and strive for perfection every rep. All the players will learn how, why and when to use all the skills being taught in great detail with a high correction rate. For those of you who are new to The Hockey Department's Programs, we like to use a number of different types of obstacles and decoys on the ice. We are always developing unique drills and have a lot of fun creating new ways to develop our players.


  • Puck control & confidence - All players will be continuously challenged with high corrective repetitions while performing very difficult puck handling & hand/eye co-ordination drills. The players will be forced out of their comfort zone and tested with countless drills where they sometimes dangle through an entire obstacle course or have to protect the puck using intense pressure tactics, just as examples. The players puck confidence rapidly develops with this type of training and transfers to the rest of their game.

  • Fakes & dekes - These skills are broken down to the fundamentals which are mastered before advancing. All the players will progressively learn how, why and when to transfer these skills to game situations. These skills are also progressively incorporated and developed with the shooting skills.

  • Puck protection - All the players will be developing their puck protection skills every class as they use these skills every shift in a game. The players will be tested with game situations and with numerous drills to develop their puck protection skills.


    ​We will be working on a number of other development skills as well, while we  continuously develop the players hockey IQ every opportunity. Like all of our programs, we pride ourselves in having small class sizes, attention to detail, high correction rate and our dedication to every players ongoing development. Please register below!
