Advanced Edgework/Powerskating Camp (A.E.P.)


The Advanced Edgework and Powerskating camp is not your typical “powerskating” session. The VHTC utilizes many Russian and Swedish edge control drills that challenge players comfort zone. This camp is for players that are proficient skaters that want to be challenged and improve their edge control, agility, acceleration and stride efficiency. Also, there will be a special focus on developing the advanced “linear” crossovers technique with and without a puck.

 

Premier Scoring Academy (P.S.A.)


The Premiere Scoring Academy will introduce translatable shooting tactics that professional players use to score. Such tactics include: shooting in stride, shooting off of bad passes, shooting off either foot, shot release with angle change, attacking from below the goal-line, creating trap doors, 10 and 2 utilization and more!

ELITE GOALTENDERS ACADEMY (E.G.A)

 

The Goaltending Academy focuses on proper stance and movement techniques.  The goalies spend 30 minutes per session focuses on their skating and movement abilities. The second 30 minutes, the goalies take live shots in the premier scoring academy stations where a goalie coach can closely observe and correct movement techniques. 

 
Elite Defensemen Skills Camp (E.D.S)


The Elite Defenseman camp will focus on elite level defensemen skills. Some of the skills that will be focused on are: Transition skating with and without a puck, backwards stride efficiency and edge control, Neutral Zone skills (underhandling, deceptive passing, hinge plays, etc) and Offensive Zone skills (lateral movement along the blue line, 10-2 utilization, jackhammers, getting shots thru traffic, etc).
