This is a co-ed session, open to high school aged players (you must have played at the high school level in previous years, or you are looking to play on the high school teams). Kellian Elevate! is a little different than the others. A standard Kellian Hockey session focuses primarily on the conceptual aspect of the game. That avenue gives players more time to make decisions without having to change their skill set. The Kellian Elevate! session is about focusing on skills. Not just any skill... rather skills that are targeted by the coaches. The coaches will customize the learning of the skill for the player. Each player will be working on something specific to their needs.
The Elevate! session will focus primarily on three aspects of your game.
1) Stick Skills
2) Skating Skills
3) Game play awareness and Team strategies.
For the first half of a skate, we will work on those different aspects... but target the needed skills that a player resonates with. For example... we won't spend time working on a toe-drag when a simple delay or tight turn will improve a player's immediate ability. Targeting certain skills, and then focusing on them with repetition will bring faster results than targeting the broad spectrum of possible skills.
The remaining time will focus on game play. The target of the full-ice, reffed scrimmage will be on specific conceptual and awareness concepts, and team play. Learning how to manipulate defenders, recognizing break downs and how to capitalize on them, developing creativity... just some of things we focus on.
