On Ice Skater Sessions – Delivered by Leslie Global Sports Team
On-ice sessions are designed to promote the development and refinement of hockey specific technical skills. Skating instruction focuses on stride technique and mechanics, agility and quickness, starts, acceleration, transitions and deceleration. All camps include shooting and stick handling instruction with added attention to tactical game strategy proficiency and decision making abilities. On ice skater sessions only apply to High Performance Skater Camps.
Strength & Conditioning Sessions – Delivered by Oval’s High Performance Team
Dryland training will take place in the Oval’s dedicated High Performance Centre. Sessions will correlate to competition schedule and hockey season. Players will develop a physical foundation that will best equip each goalie to progressively handle training for greater mobility, flexibility, strength, power, and durability. Additional emphasis is placed on corrective exercises, and recovery and regeneration strategies. Oval S&C coaches work with each player to ensure that training sessions complement on-ice activities.
