CAROLINA EAGLES 2ND ANNUAL
PREMIER HOCKEY SCHOOL
The Carolina Eagles Premier Hockey School is designed for the serious player who is looking to find out how good he or she can become. The school is designed to help players to improve and continue development of their individual skills, positional play, and a game situational understanding, through a controlled teaching environment. Hockey Skill development involves two distinct ingredients; first a staff that understands the technical nature of each skill and how to teach that to younger players. Our staff will have over 70 years of combined coaching and hockey teaching experience. Second, muscle memory training through repetition, doing each drill correctly every time. Teaching players to understand the nuances of the game and situational recognition, is taught both on and off the ice with a 7 to 1 student to teacher ratio. Off ice they will be taught, in a class room setting, positional play in all three zones, offensive attack, transition, breakouts, and defense responsibilities. Those lessons will be reinforced on the ice during controlled scrimmages and team drills, i.e. teaching both sides of 1 v 1, 3 v 2, 2 v 1, etc.
Each day will consist of 5 hours of training. Days will be broken down to 1 hour of on ice skill work, 1 hour of on ice team drills, 1 hour of class room, 1 hour of on ice, controlled teaching scrimmage or small games, and 1 hour of off-ice training. That is 25 hours of training in a week’s time, or 3 months of practice time during the season, all in one week. That is how muscle memory training kicks in.
Hockey School is an important ingredient in a player’s development, due to the student to teacher ratio, and the ability of our coaches, to work on the parts of an individual’s game that coaches do not have time to work on during the season due to limited practice time. It helps a player develop the most important part of their game, skills and hockey IQ.
Players will be given game jerseys, can bring a sandwich and drink for class room (recommended), they must bring a water bottle to be used for on and off ice, and a pair of shorts and running shoes for off-ice work (they can wear under their equipment.)
