U8/Mites Skating Skills Development
The U8/Mites Skills Development program strengthens the young players skating and puck handling skills. Participants will begin with the fundamental skills involved in Proper Skating Technique, which includes forward/backward strides, transitional skills, pivots, and cross overs. Next, we introduce and incorporate Power and Speed into each players' skating technique. As the kids strengthen their ability to apply these skills, Skill Blending will combine their skating skills and puck handling. Lastly, we develop their skating and puck handling skills into game-like situational drills which allow players to develop their ability to apply and adapt their skating and puck handling skills while under normal pressures of the game - Skill Development to Game Training.
