Service Description

During the off-season, it's very important to work on deeper aspects of the game. Skating, shooting, stick handling, passing, game awareness strategy... If we look at players at the highest levels, that's what they are doing: Training. Working on the small stuff. It's the small stuff that brings on the bigger gains. That's where skill development camps come in. The difference between a Kellian Hockey Skill Development camp and the others, as the skills are presented to the players, the progression is tailored to the needs of the players. If there is a wider range of skill, the players will have level specific challenges that will satisfy and push each player to wherever they are. Further, Ian is particularly adept with his knowledge of the skills and how to break down the various parts involved and where a player might be struggling and how they can fix it. Elite players are great to work with because of how quickly they can pick up new skill and how they can adapt it into their style of play. The Kellian Hockey April Skills week will consist of a 5-day, 2 hour-skate each day, action packed week. April 19-23 from 10-12pm (Session 1), 1-3pm (Session 2) all at Pilgrim Ice Arena in Hingham, MA.
