ON ICE TRAINING
We will provide a high-intensity on-ice curriculum, implemented each day by Minnesota Blue Ox coaches Jay Witta and Jason Wood. Our on-ice training focuses on puck possession, patience, poise, regroups, speed, intensity, quick movement, small area games, board battles and high compete levels. In addition, we include individual skill development to better allow our athletes the ability to incorporate their individual skills into the overall development and game situations created during on-ice training. Twice a month we will bring in a skating instructor to work on skating, balance and edgework only for sixty minutes.
