Organizational Training

SELECTSKILLS has partnered with many local youth hockey programs & their Board of Directors to assist in structuring a productive skills program.  Many of the programs we work with have realized the benefit and importance of an integrated skills program throuhgout their season.  Whether you are trying to establish a repetitive & progressive "Skills Night" throughout the entire season or random skills sessions to accomodate ice availability, we will work around your schedule.  The skills program can be designed for overall core skill stations or Power Skating Format.  Each session is customized to age, ability and, of course, feedback from you.  If you would like to establish or revamp a skills program for your organization or if you would like to speak with one of the programs we assist, please email    

Coaches Seminars

Training your players without educating your coaches can be extremely counter- productive.  It is great to see youth hockey thru professional coaches implementing core skills training into their practice plan.  Some coaches are recycling some great drills from the internet, books or local skills programs, but if they don't understand the key focus points that they should be teaching the skaters, then the drill is not productive.  Drills should never explained to a child as "skate from cone to another".  Coaches should be explaining which core skills will be worked on, how they will be improved, & why the drill is important.

SELECTSKILLS always recommends that organizations take advantage of our coaches seminars.  We go on-ice and walk through a skills sessions drill-by-drill until your coaches understand the drills for what they are intended to do.  The coaches seminars can also be done during a standard skills session so that coaches can work with players they are familiar with.
