On-ice sessions include hockey fundamentals such as skating, puck-handling, checking, passing, and tactics. On-ice sessions take place in a number of west edmonton arenas. When students are not on ice they are exposed to sport specific fitness training, boxing, yoga, stickhandling and shooting. Every day, players are working on either shooting or stickhandling, and they are learning some new aspects of the game. The academy also provides video analysis of each student’s stride and shooting techniques.
