This is the first step to achieving the dream of playing hockey. Players will learn to combine their skating skills with stick handling drills as well as general game concepts. The focus of this program is to have fun while learning the sport. All participants must be able to skate. Full equipment is required.
Shooting & Stickhandling
Learn the basics and fundamentals in shooting and stickhandling along how to implement them successfully at your level. Players will work on technique, accuracy, power, and movement when shooting. The majority of the drills are done in battle and/or race situations that mimic game like conditions. Players gain skills and confidence by repeated repetitions under the duress of Micro Ice’s smaller surface.
3 Vs 3 Hockey Games
We play “game like” so that you can “like your game!” We drop the puck and let the kids just play. Work on new moves, meet new friends, and have a blast playing the whole time.

THE ONLY PLACE TO GET YOUR ON-ICE TRAINING
At Micro Ice, our philosophy is based on small group training in a smaller area at a high tempo with many repetitions. Our rink is one-third the size of standard rinks. For younger players, the smaller surface is more comfortable and less daunting. For older players, the smaller surface enhances intensity, forces faster decision making and improves quickness in shots and moves. Our experienced, professional coaches create game-like situations with maximum puck touches to accelerate player development.
