Summer Skills

Summer is a great time to continue building your skills and confidence. Our program is designed to help players of all levels build their abilities, increase their strength and learn more about the game. We will continue to build on what we worked on during Spring Skills. Sessions will be held at the Edge and at Foothills Ice Arena. Our top Foothills Skills Coaches will teach all of these sessions.  

8U - The 8U group will focus on skating and puck skills. The skating will focus on proper edge work, body alignment, and forward and backward strides. With puck skills, we will work on appropriate stick handling, vision while you have the puck, passing, and shooting.

10U - The 10U group will focus on advanced power skating and puck skill techniques. During power skating, we will concentrate on quicker starts, changing direction, overspeed, and agility. Puck skills activity will focus on learning how to make moves in tight areas and the open ice. We will also focus on proper shooting techniques in all areas of the ice. These skills will also focus on appropriate vision control to enhance the athlete's success. 

12U/14U - The 12U/14U group will focus on body contact, puck protections and control, and advanced power skating. We will continue Spring Skills but put more of a focus on body contact to get ready for the upcoming season. In the advanced power skating and puck control segments, staff will focus on changing direction with the puck while maintaining vision. They will also work on deception with and without the puck. This will lead to learning to be a more patient player with puck protection drills and techniques. The body-checking portions will teach the players how to properly give and receive body checks. 

Goaltending - The goaltending clinics will be essential to all of our goalkeepers, at all ages, to stay up on proper skating techniques, angling, crease movements, puck tracking, and compete levels.  **Goalies can attend age level skates at no additional cost if registered for the goalie sessions**


For age groups 8U through 14U. All participants must have a valid USA Hockey membership.


$150 per skater/goalie. Goalies can attend age level skate if registered for goaltending session.


Five sessions through July and August.
