    2015 Velocity Defensemen Clinic

    Due to HIGH demand, Velocity Hockey is pleased to announce that we are adding a NEW!  Defensemen Clinic to our popular 2015 Summer Clinics list. This clinic will be held at Braemar Arena in Edina. Noel Rahn & Ryan Theros will be the lead instructors for this popular clinic. 

    Players will skate 1.25 hours twice a week for four weeks for a total of 10 hours.  This clinic will be unique in that we will only have 12 players on the ice per group. This will insure each player will maximize their development with a ton of quality reps and on top of that get more individualized coaching on the ice. 

    For this clinic we will ONLY be having two age specific groups. We will have a (Peewee) group and a (Bantam) group. We also are only taking players who played at the B1, A and AA level this past winter season. Please see registration for camp dates and times for both session. 

    Velocity Hockey’s Defensemen Clinic will feature a variety of different teaching tactics for Defensemen who are looking to improve their defensive skills by first being taught the mechanics of the position and then applying those skills to game situations.  Here are some of the things we will be working on throughout the 4 weeks camp.  We will be working on these within a variety of defensemen drills. 

    Skating:  pivoting, quick feet, transitional skating, crossovers, agility, speed, lateral mobility etc.. These will all be done with & without the puck.  

    Shooting/Puck Control:  all kinds of shooting techniques ranging from quick release, one timers, shooting through trafficand lanes, wrist shots, snap shots, slap shots, lateral, and off balanced shots.

    Body Contact:  body position, angling, stick position, In front of net play, corner play, battling 1 on 1.

    Gap Control:  taking away time & space, limiting opponents ability to move with the puck on the attack.

    Breakouts:  reading pressure, partner support, different types of passes, positional play on the breakout, breakout options.

    Reading the Play/Rush:  1 on 1, 2 on 1, 2 on 2 and 3 on 2
