Advanced - Skating & Skills

This program encompasses the best of what the RINK has to offer in a single program. Regardless of mastery level, Skating & Skills incorporates aspects of Power Skating, Shooting & Scoring, and Puck Control programs, giving players a taste of everything we specialize in.

Each Skating & Skills Program also features an off-ice component with RINK Testify Performance. This component takes place in the gym or on the track prior to or following the on-ice session. Players will focus on developing functional movement patterns that correlates to on-ice development.

The Advanced Skating and Skills Program is designed to develop great habits through the proper techniques. On-ice, skaters will focus on stride location for individual skating skills. Skaters will master transitions from forwards to backwards effective and efficiently. While mastering puck control, skaters will learn to stickhandle around their bodies and evolve into shooting techniques concentrating on creating flex from their stick using a push and pull motion. This program focuses on a well-rounded approach to the skater’s skill development. 

*The Female Only Skating & Skills program will feature a curriculum that is more focused on the Shooting & Scoring and Puck Control aspects of the program.*

Advanced - 3 on 3

3 on 3 hockey is a fast-paced, high-scoring, high-skilled variant of the traditional game of hockey. Played on our customed-sized training sheet (120ft x 60ft), it is played with three skaters and goalie per team on the ice, and forces players to think and react faster than normal game like scenarios. The smaller ice sheet and fewer players result in a wide-open, high-scoring game with lots of end-to-end action. The smaller size of the rink also puts a premium on speed, agility, and quick reflexes, as players must be able to make quick turns and transitions in order to keep up with the fast pace of the game. The game is typically divided into short shifts, with teams making frequent line changes in order to keep players fresh and maintain the intensity of the action. 

RINK 3 on 3 will enable you to: 

  • Develop faster reaction time 
  • Work to improve your skills 
  • Learn to play in confined spaces 
  • Play around the net both offensively and defensively 
  • Develop more confidence with the puck 
  • Get a cardiovascular work-out 

Players will be signed up as individuals and 2 teams will be made each week. Teams will be rotated weekly, with pinnies to differentiate teams so players play with all players in the 3 vs 3 program. 

Players will receive a RINK Jersey which they keep after the program.  We will require players to bring this jersey each week to help split up teams.
