Your player is our priority. Briefed on the skill and experience level of each player, Dskate Hockey coaches are prepared to work with all skill levels, from beginner to professional.
Players are assessed on their current talent, skill and stamina levels as well as skating, stickhandling, shooting and agility. Upon initial evaluation, our staff apply individualizes paths for each player in an effort to guide them to a successful week of improving their skills.
It starts with your first stride, and gets better with the next.
Skating isn't a tool or skill to be mastered but a neccessary function of being a better hockey player. It's fun to become a better skater and opens up a brand new world of hockey. From cross-overs and cuts, learning how to jump, roll and react to any possible on-ice scenario, you are taught how to conquer each obstacle in your path.
Lefty or Righty, it makes no difference, it's all in how comfortable you are with the puck.
Up, over, around and through, Dskate provides your hockey player with an unforgettable experience as they hone their stickhandling skills.
Focusing on grip, puck-handling and puck-protection, the dynamics involved in becoming a better stickhandler are often left un-practiced. Not only is the art of stickhandling left un-practiced, it has only traditionally been left to be improved upon through in-game situations.
At Dskate, your player will spend plenty of time practicing with the puck as with up to 9 specialized work stations, we test each every facet of puck-handling.
