CONSULTING vs Hockey School

HOCKEY SCHOOLS

Traditional hockey school format is not effective for these reasons:

  • Hockey schools are filled with players from a wide age range.  For example, 8-12 year olds are on the ice together. 
  • Hockey schools are filled with players from a wide skill level.  For example, beginning recreational players with AAA players. 
  • Hockey schools do not involve the local team coach or clubs coaches.  The coaches of the players teams are not at the hockey camp so even if the hockey school was great and helped change the players skill level they would quickly lose those new skills if the drills are not repeated and since the coach is not their the drills will never get repeated.
  • Players don’t always work hard for a hockey school instructor because there are no consequences.  If the team or club coaches are involved then they know if they don’t work hard they will lose ice time.
  • Hockey schools are so expensive because of the cost to fly in and accommodate additional staff.  These costs of hotel and accommodations are not directly related to improving the player.
  • Ice rental cost more for the out of town renter.  This extra cost is paid by the participant and is another cost not directly related to improving the player.
  • Lost of money is wasted on advertising, soliciting individual registration.  Team registration reduced cost and time.
  • Cost of hockey school is usually $100 more than a Consulting session.
  • The local team or club gets nothing out of the hockey school.


CONSULTING 

Here at Skinner Hockey we believe in a better format…CONSULTING…where a team(s), hockey club or association hires SKINNER HOCKEY to run week long training sessions for their own players and coaches.  Here’s why:

  • Players are skating with their teammate of the same age.
  • Players are skating at the own level whether that is beginner, recreation, travel, compeditive or highly compeditive AAA.
  • The local coaches or team coaches are involved.  They come out on the ice and assist in teaching the players and there by learn how to teach stickhandling themselves.  The coaches hear the explanations and learn new drills.  Now when the players go back to their team practices they can repeat these new movement patterns.  Think about it even if a player goes to a good hockey school where they learn new skills, if those movement patterns are not repeated then they will loose the skills quickly.  By training the coaches at the same time we are training the players we are ensure the skill development will stick.
  • By involving the team or club coaches the players now have to work hard or they will lose playing time.
  • Ice rented by the local team or clubs is cheaper per hour than for an out of town renter.  No need for expensive advertising it is all done internally in the club or with the team.  Finally, no money is wasted on accommodations and airfare for secondary staff.  Here players are only paying for a top professional coach. 
  • Club or Team registration reduces the cost and time of advertising.
  • Cost is usually $100 less than your regular hockey school.
  • This session could be used as a fund raiser for the local team or club.

Call today to host your training session!

Every player is going to go to hockey camp this summer.  Players go anywhere from 1 to 5 camps per summer.  Why not hire a top professional company with a worldwide reputation for excellent instruction to provide a week of stickhandling training for both the players and the coaches at a huge savings?

 

Have your team or club call SKINNER HOCKEY today to set up your training session.
