Players will be forced to COMPETE outside their comfort levels to elevate their game. Complete the player profile form below for this incredible EXPERIENCE!!             

Mike Sullivan

(2016 ~ Stanley Cup Champion – Head Coach)

Hockey is an instinctive, largely unscripted game, where players are constantly trying to gain time and space in offensive situations and take away time and space on defense. As such, players who can think for themselves, adapt and form their own solutions to game-play challenges have a major advantage. Small-area games encourage players to learn by doing, while competing in an environment that encourages creativity and deception skills. Players will be forced to make decisions repeatedly while battling for space.”
