6:1 Student to Instructor Ratio


These days defensemen must be mobile, quick thinkers able to move with the puck to create scoring opportunities and threatening line rushes. With this in mind we have created a program that will not only teach how to defend your own end, but will allow the student to gain confidence in skating with the puck and joining the rush. Every team needs a defenseman that can be a great offensive contributor. This program will provide all the skills needed to become a defenseman that can breakup the play then turn it up the other way.
All of the essential defensive skills will also be covered. (eg. Backwards skating including acceleration & pivots, 1 on 1’s, 2 on 1’s, holding the blueline, breakout passes, transitional play and covering the front of the net.) This program is a must for all defensemen!

Performance Training Description
The off-ice fitness training will take place in our 2000 sq ft training center in rink #2 at RINX. Students will be working on basic and advanced training routines, based on their level. The training program will include balance & agility, upper and lower body strength, speed, quickness & mobility, conditioning and flexibility. Students will work at their own level under the guidance of our fitness training staff. Each student will receive a complete fitness assessment which is comprised of a variety of standard fitness testing exercises.
