Team Development

The 2021-22 hockey season is shaping up to be our busiest yet, as far as team development goes. Why do teams approach us, and how are we different than others?

Different than other companies, we do not come in with a pre-determined plan without consulting with the coaching staff first, or in a perfect world, watching the team play first. Determining teams’ skill deficiencies in detail, and identifying areas of opportunity must be completed before we hit the ice. Skill limitations are different with every team, especially at different ages/levels. 

Our process translates to team improvement through the basic formula of: Breaking down, building, and progressing technical skill + adding team tactics, speed, pressure + execute with team structure! We spend a lot of time on positional skill work with our teams as well.

One of the biggest mistakes we see that coaches make, is adjusting their systems, or attempting to incorporate more systems into their team, when they are not seeing results. Without sufficient fundamental skill, no system or set play in the world will work. So many individual skills and tactics build into unwavering team success! It is so critical that coaches continue to improve individual player skill sets, not just for their own team sake, but each players’ future as well. If you as a coach, commit to developing your players all season, it will lead to wins come playoff time.
