More than 35 Years of Hockey Experience

Our Instructors are second to none

TBS Hockey is renowned for its highly professional, experienced, dedicated, and energetic instructors. These characteristics are directly reflected in the learning/training environment created on the ice.

Our camps are designed with the primary objective of promoting skill development through supportive, but challenging ice sessions that will increase a player’s confidence and their ability think and make decisions on the ice – hockey sense.

Specifically, our innovative training methods and techniques will enhance each participant’s ability to improve in the basic fundamentals vital to the game of hockey – skating, passing, puck handing, shooting, and checking (when appropriate).

 Teaching Experience

All instructors have a wealth of experience teaching and coaching both on the ice and in the classroom. As a result, each participant will be exposed to organized and stimulating ice sessions that are developmentally appropriate for the age categories involved. In addition, players will be exposed to drills and activities that allow players to engage in multiple repetitions when developing various skills. In other words, our ice sessions are organized to avoid long “line ups” when participating in drills, as players are constantly moving.

Overall, this increases confidence, improves skill, and keeps them actively involved throughout the ice session.

Our instructors realize the importance of progression. A consistent theme throughout our camps feature basic skills being introduced early in the week with more advanced skills and tactics presented in the later part of the camp. Overall, players will be able to develop and improve at their own pace throughout the week.

Our camp also features a low instructor to player ratio on the ice which ensures that all players will receive the necessary teaching points and feedback required for the overall learning, refining, and improvement of skills and tactics.

Skills & Drills Clinics

OVERVIEW

Young players learn best when expectations are explained, demonstrated, and practiced in a positive atmosphere, especially when there is a logical progression of teaching skills suited to their current skill level and needs.

As a result, each TBS SKILLS & DRILLS Clinic is purposefully structured in a way that provides each player with more individual instruction and a higher number of repetitions for practicing various skills and tactics.

This creates a fun and optimal learning environment for each player which ultimately leads to enhanced learning. Overall, our SKILLS & DRILLS sessions ensure that players are always actively engaged and moving and are subjected to constant feedback from instructors.

For all TBS SKILLS & DRILLS clinics, coaches will provide instruction in a “small group” environment that features dividing the ice into “stations”.

This arrangement promotes and enhances maximum learning and development of players. Each station will emphasize a particular skill and/or tactic and will provide opportunities for players to repeatedly work on targeted skills and tactics relevant to the SKILLS & DRILLS clinic being conducted. Players are grouped into 4 or 5 stations on the ice (depending on the clinic) with a minimum of four qualified coaches on the ice for each session.

Players are divided into groups with individuals of the same age and/or skill level to ensure that each group is being instructed and challenged appropriately. Organizing the players into age/skill specific groups provides a more comfortable learning environment – which allows individual players to train with more confidence and permits additional opportunities to practice and develop their skills at their own related pace.

All sessions begin with a skill warm – up that physically and mentally prepare the players for the clinic being offered. Each session will end with a fun/competitive small-area game that allows the players to apply the learned skills in a game-like environment.
