Welcome to Precision Hockey
Precision Hockey has trained over 3,900 players from the NHL, AHL, ECHL, NCAA, OHL, USHL, NAHL, BCHL, High School, and Youth Hockey. Players that come to Precision Hockey recognize that skating is a big part of todays game. No system of play or strategy can hide a player’s skating deficiencies. That’s where Precision Hockey goes to work. The game of hockey is all about being able to control your skating from fast to slow automatically without even thinking about it. It’s all muscle memory (myelin) formed with the proper instruction and continuous repetition of proper skills. The game of hockey is constantly changing. The game is changing from the way we, as coaches and players, are accustomed to playing. A new way of thinking and training is required. Player development is all about results. This includes determination and a work ethic second to none. The player has to want it the most; the passion is the most vital trait to success. At Precision Hockey we pride ourselves in preparing players to be the best they can be. We work on the foundation (skating) and build on it by using a progressive set of randomized top down drills that allow players to “figure it out”. We want our players to learn to think for themselves thereby improving their hockey sense. We encourage our players to get out of their comfort zones, make mistakes and then learn from them. We teach our players to make playing/training with intensity both fun and a habit.
At Precision Hockey, I develop players starting with the following 7 steps:
4. Endurance – stamina
6. Hockey IQ / Game awareness – visualization
7. Puck control – Soft / Quick hands
