The Art of the Face-Off!
I have created a 90 minute Face-Off clinic and I would like to invite kids and coaches to participate in.
Players aged 8 and up can benefit from this program.
Learning these basic Face-Off skill can make a tremendous difference to each game that you play as there are 60 to 100+ face-offs in a normal game. Typically the team that has the puck the most is the team that wins the hockey game.
Each face-off gives you the opportunity for your team to get the puck and this is easy to do when you know how. But there is more to just winning a face-off your line mates need to be prepared to respond to that.
There are very few teams that trains face-off especially in the lower levels and this program will be a significant advantage for an untrained team. If your players learn to dominate the face-off circle early their skills, their confidence will continue to grow.
In the NHL, face-offs are so critical that teams will often have 2 center men on the ice at the most critical times JUST so they can win the face-off.
These are the skills that we will teach:
- Pre – face off communication
- Types of draws.
- Pre-set plays
- Engaging the opposition.
There will be:
- 1 90 minute off ice session in a Gym.
- For the off-ice session players will require:
- Gloves and sticks.
- Shoulder and elbow pads.
- Gym strip.
Please let me know if your organization is interested in this clinic.
