Better To Best Hockey Program
Better Player's Better to Best Programs are designed for the hockey player that is dedicated to getting better and becoming the best they possibly can be. The main focus of all Better Player programs is skating. We teach all players the basic fundamentals and mechanics of a powerful, strong skating stride. Once we have that in place, we work to make it better. We add edge control, body control, foot speed, explosiveness and power to that solid basic platform. This gives us the best platform to train and create the best players on the ice. At better player we realize the importance of skating but we also know that if you're always the first to the puck you also need to be able to do something with it when you get there. So we teach Shooting, Passing, Puck handling and mental aspects of the game to all players. Anybody can do better but Better Player will make you the BEST!
Best Start to Hockey Program
Better Player believes that a great positive start to hockey is the foundation for a long lasting love of the game. So we have developed a program for younger first or second year hockey players, that simply want to get started in hockey, This program is for 4 to 6 year olds that are just about to start their first season or have finished one season and are going to start a second season. We teach basic skating and basic puck handling in an informal manner and the experience is based on having fun and taking the first steps into the best game on ice, hockey!
Better Skater Program
Better Player offers a unique program for hockey players, ringette players and recreational skaters. We have our better skater program that is only skating. It is a program for the 4 year old learning to skate, as well we can take the 50 year old that simply wants stay in shape. We offer something for every age group and every skill level. The Better Skater program will take a skater through a well planned progression of balance, control and agility to develop a superior technical skater. These skaters are more capable of handling themselves because they have a stride that generates maximum speed with minimum effort and the have mastered edges and stopping. Throughout the program skaters will develop using his or her body in a coordinated effort to develop maximum power.
