1st Line Power Skating believes that hockey should be taught in three progressive stages; SKILLS, SENSE & SYSTEMS. Players should first develop basic hockey skills; skating, passing, shooting and checking. A strong base in the basic skills will allow the player to develop his/her hockey sense; reading the play, finding the scoring areas, anticipating the play and finding open ice. Now that the player has the physical ability and sense to read the play in action, the coach can now implement specific strategies and systems. Skill development must be practiced every session, without the tools you can't perform the work. The most important aspect in developing skills is that the players' must have fun!!
