SHIELD offers on-ice training for both teams and individual hockey players. We have worked closely consulting with world renown coaches to develop a unique program that will take your on-ice skills to the next level. We create an environment that is supportive and motivating for every skater at every level. Having direct access to ice within our facility expedites the transition from On Ice training straight to Dry land training. Much like our dry land training, we also incorporate the four pillars into our On Ice development program.

Our program focuses on the four pillars of On Ice development:

Mindset:

  • Game situational drills
  • Creating space on ice
  • Positional play
  • Controlling speed in three zones

Movement:

  • Skills and agility
  • Weight transfers
  • Puck protection
  • Absorbing and controlling contact
  • Escape moves to space

Reaction:

  • Drills to make decision at high speeds
  • Central nervous system development
  • Over speed reaction
  • The faster the game the quicker the decisions

Power:

  • Optimal edge control
  • Power turns
  • Linear accecelleration
  • Lateral acceleration/ de acceleration
  • Skating mechanics
