Players will work with either Rocco Carzo, Radoslav Illo, Bryce Aneloski, or other coaches in small group setting. Groups will be formed of 10 to 12 skaters to allow for quality instruction and high repetitions. The small group setting will achieve higher tempo, more quality reps, and a lot of hands on instruction. On-ice sessions will be geared to improve players skating, passing, puck-handling, and shooting fundamentals.
