We have all herd the cliche, "the key to a good offense is a good defence" or "defence wins hockey games". These statements are true, but everything we learn in hockey (skill-wise) is all about offense. Shooting, stickhandling, skating are all taught with offense in mind. However, what coaches want to see and what helps teams win is defence. At Better Player we teach game theory and positioning for proper defence. Defence is not only for defencemen, forwards have to learn defence and defensive positioning. Better Player takes a game play approach to teaching defensive tactics to help all players dominate the defensive side of the puck so they can have more puck possession on the offense.
Programs we teach defensive play:
- Better to Best Programs
- Defensmen camps coming soon
- Forwards playing defense coming soon
