ON ICE TRAINING
We offer multiple choices for on-ice work, depending on what you are looking for. CrossIce always has numerous options for camps; including Prep Camps, Power Skating or Skills Camps, and more! If you are looking for individual skill sessions, please reach out to us about an initial consultation and game analysis.
At CrossIce, we are different than most in the sense that we do a tremendous amount of research on our players before we work with them individually. Camps, on the other hand, are an excellent way for players to improve in a group setting and compete against players of their calibre, especially when coming up on try-outs. Individualized training is targeted at the details and limiting factors of your personal game. We know the value of the investment as well as the time you have chose to dedicate; and our job is to pinpoint what you need to correct or add to your game, so we make your time with us as efficient as possible. Analyzing habits and creating new pathways to control the game is what we are proud to say we do.
With staff that are involved in Jr A Hockey and above, we know what teams are looking for at the next level and what takes a player from Midget to Junior A, Bantam AAA to Major Midget AAA, or from Female Midget AAA to Division I College Hockey. We are not fixated on working with players using the trendiest methods, rather what is required for players to be able to do at the next level, what each individual themselves needs to improve on, and how they will stand out from the rest.
PREP- preparing players for upcoming try-outs and training camps. These camps include high tempo passing and skating, small area battle drills, timing and spacing scenarios, game-like situations such as odd-man zone entries, neutral zone transitions, and more! These camps provide a seamless transition from your season or off-ice training, into your try-out process.
POWER SKATING- fine tune your stride and skating ability by developing your first three steps, stride mechanics, turning and crossovers, and speed with the puck. First and foremost we work on technique, then we add speed, and different from most, we utilize that work in game situations. Video Break-Down is also incorporated.
SKILLS- shooting, passing, puck control, and combining skills can separate you from others. a large portion of these are position specific- focusing on specific shot options, controlling the puck in certain scenario’s, etc. Video is also used for the technique break-down, and we then put it forward into game situations.
INDIVIDUAL SKILL DEVELOPMENT- this is solely based on what we learn and collect from your game analysis. We learn how you see the game, what is limiting you, put some numbers behind your habits, and create a development plan for you. Our individual development improves your skill set in conjunction with your hockey sense so you can control the game every shift!
