Total Hockey Training Summer Development

We believe that the summer “window” is the perfect time to make gains and push the improvement of each player’s individual skills. This full summer program is designed around the use of the “POWER EDGE PRO” system to attain that goal. Players will also be exposed to the “Methot Elite Skating System” to further their development. By training 2-3 times per week focusing on skating, passing, and shooting, each players skill level will increase. Led by Coach Methot and his team of trained instructors.

Power Edge Pro Camp

When the skater attacks the PEP gear at full speed, how quickly can the player get out of “trouble” AND “counter” with skills/tactics? The PEP gear is the “trouble” (stimulus) and the open lane or stick attachment is the “counter”. Under pressure, the forward must “counter” by quickly maneuvering the puck through the open lane. This is GAME TRANSFER. Led by Coach Methot and his team of trained instructors.
