Off season is a time to unwind and relax a bit, however it is one of the most crucial times to keep your body in shape, active and keeping a well balanced diet. Enquire about on and off-ice training programs.
A Player Assessment is a crucial analysis to evaluate a player's development on the variety of playing levels. For many Elite High Level organizations such as AA, AAA, and Junior Levels it is used during tryouts or initial player evaluation periods to get a snapshot of the player's abilities to determine if they should make the team or identify appropriate skill level a player should be placed into known as Scouting.
In our personal experience it is valuable to use them throughout the season to compare against the original and subsequent assessments. This enables us to help the player reach their highest goals in their Youth playing experience.
We now offer two types of assessments. Game Assessments which takes place during a player's game or as a 1:1 on-ice session. Game Assessment will provide us with Game Awareness, Player's Character, Team play and the technical statistics we are looking for. On a 1:1 On-Ice Assessment will provide us a deeper demonstration of their skills, and we get to know the player on a more personal 1:1 level.
