The development stream skills program is designed for boys and girls ages 7 and older who are looking to continue learning the fundamentals of the game of hockey in a passionate, high energy environment. This program is broken down into three stages; TDS 1, TDS 2 , and TDS 3, providing a progressive skills development program for kids from age 7 & older.
Each stage of the program is focused on developing and progressing proper skating skills, puck handling fundamentals, passing, and shooting skills. During each practice session, participants will rotate through a series of zones on the ice, which will be split between “teaching” zones and “mini-game” zones. We believe that maintaining a balance between technical teaching time and less structured game play time will accomplish the two primary goals for participants in the program – to learn the basic skills of hockey and to grow passion for the sport.
Note: All participants must start and completed TDS 1 in order to progress to TDS 2 and TDS 3, regardless of age.
