SportsEngine Registration: Winterland Ice Hockey

2019 Adult Skills Development Program

Welcome to the 2019 Adult Skills Development Registration Page

2019 Adult Skills Development Program

Winterland in an effort to help interested adult skaters improve their skills is offering a 7 week program at the Brentwood Ice Rink starting in March 9th and ending May 4th.

For several years Winterland has been extremely successful developing Learn to Play and Extended Learn to Play Programs for adults.  Now we have been asked to develop a program to concentrate on increasing the fundamental skills of adult skaters.

Program Plan: To utilize drills and small area games to teach fundamental skills.

Practice Plan:

Warm Up (5 minutes): We start every session with fundamental skating drills that emphasize edge work and transition skating.

Drills: (30 minutes) Skaters are randomly grouped into teams and required to execute skating and puck handling skills in a "station" environment.

Small Area Games (SAG) (30 minutes): Hockey is a game with constant movement up and down the ice with endless possibilities for play making that are best taught through SAG’s.

Scrimmage (10 minutes): Pond hockey with a purpose where players are encouraged to execute the teaching points of the SAG’s.
