Stick Handling & Puck Control Clinic

We combine the fundamentals of GAZDIG POWER PLUS SKATINGĀ® together with individual skill development in proper handling of the hockey stick, puck control, shooting and passing – including forehand, backhand, as well as offensive and defensive agility maneuvers.

Our intention is to teach individuals the proper skills needed to excel in the game of hockey, using a combination of 20-25 skating drills as well as key stick handling, passing, and shooting drills.

To become a great hockey player one must constantly improve and maintain their skating skills such as the ones we teach in the Gazdig Power Plus Skating School. All the great NHL players have skating coaches to maintain their skills.

Our Clinic sessions teach the vital skills that are essential for hockey players, yet are often overlooked, or forgotten by other programs:

  • proper length and taping of the stick
  • proper hand position on stick for better puck control — thumb position, lower hand dynamics
  • correct stick-handling — both sides of the body
  • proper control of stick — one hand, two hand, forehand, and backhand
  • proper and accurate puck passing — forehand and backhand
  • proper and accurate pass receiving — forehand and backhand
  • proper puck control — in traffic, agility and break-away maneuvers
  • controlled accuracy shooting — forehand, backhand, wrist, and more

Our program takes students out of the hockey game environment where they can focus on individual skills and gain the knowledge to form good habits. The program is designed for individuals committed to reaching their highest potential in hockey.
