Everyone wants to get better, especially at hockey. That's where Better Player comes in. We offer a Better Skater Program as well as our hockey-specific Better to Best Program. Our Better Skater program is available to all ages and abilities. Our Skating program is a technical based program. The Better Skater program is an option for Hockey players, Ringette Players and the Recreational Skater that simply wants to get better at skating.

What You Get From Better Player

Better Player was founded as a team of hockey instructors dedicated to providing the best learn-to-skate programs in Edmonton & area. Over the years we have helped skaters of all ages in a private and public session environment. Many of our skaters excel to new skating heights and return to take part in one of our many hockey training and development programs.

Beyond our learn-to-skate programs, Better Player offers a wide range of hockey extras to improve both individual and team performance. Our coaching clinics, stickhandling camps, shooting programs and one-on-one instruction options provide the necessities and beyond for players of all ages and teams of all levels.

The Better Player "home ice" is located in the Leduc Recreation Centre. However, we also offer dozens of skating programs at arenas in and around Edmonton. Our on-ice instruction includes skating, stickhanding, shooting, defending and more. We also work with teams and organizations to deliver our curriculum in their own environment as it applies to their specific needs and team development.

Our off-ice instruction programs are offered in and around Edmonton and at our headquarters in the Leduc Recreation Centre. Programs include coach-the-coach, audio/visual, dryland training and strength-fitness training.
