About This Activity

Cortland Hockey's Youth Hockey Prep Camp - What to Expect: Our 4-day Prep Camp features creative and progressive drills stressing proper skating, shooting, and hockey technique. This camp covers offensive and defensive strategies taught through a variety of challenging game-situation drills. Skating and Edges: Including proper body position, correct use of inside & outside edges, balance, and agility so players can wring the most power out of each stride. Stickhandling and Crossovers: Stickhandling technique, including proper hand placement, head position and location of puck on the stick. Also teaching crossover technique; demonstrating the most efficient use of edges to generate maximum speed and power. Power Turns and Backwards Skating: Proper body position and edge control while executing power turns so players can quickly and efficiently change direction. Backward strides and crossovers are also covered. Pivots and Contact: Instruction on transitions so players can smoothly move from skating forwards to backwards or backwards to forwards without losing speed. We also introduce good body contact – both how to safely give and receive contact– so young players are familiar with this skill once checking becomes a regular part of their game. Game situation confrontational drills: We teach the game of hockey. Our “Game Situation” drills focus on the Forward and Defenseman aspects of real game play. Defenseman – angling, gap control, net play, at the point, and odd & even man rushes. Forwards – winning the battles, attacking the triangle, power moves, tipping, and odd & even player rushes. SUNDAY, AUG 28th: 5:15-6:30pm (off-ice to follow) MONDAY, AUG 29th: 5:15-6:30pm WEDNESDAY, AUG 31st: 5:15-6:30pm THURSDAY, SEP 1st: 5:15-6:30pm
