What is one of the key skills to develop for the following players: Patrick Kane, Sidney Crosby, John Tavares, Jonathan Toews, Alex OvechKin, Connor McDavid and Austin Matthews (soon to be #1 in 2016 draft). When you listen to the video clip “What do Crosby, Kane, Toews and Tavares have in common?” you will note that stickhandling and body position are crucial in creating space and time to make a play.

This has always been Corbin Hockey’s focus for the past 14 years! Please do visit Darryl Belfry’s site to witness some of the excellent things he does with these great players. http://www.proplaymakers.ca/
What does the NHL advanced statistics of “Corsi” and “Fenwick”
really mean? To put it in simple terms,
it is the ability of a team to control the puck in various parts of the ice,
especially in the offensive zone. The
two teams in the Stanley Cup finals rank 2nd and 4th in
those numbers. How do you improve your puck
possession stats as a team? You must
develop your puck control skills, which includes passing, shooting and one on
It is interesting to see that due to the focus on “battles”,
a number of camps have opened in the last couple years and call themselves “Battle
Camps”! Corbin Hockey has done battle
drills since its first year and continues to evolve in this area
replicating the speed of today’s game.
The distinct difference between Corbin Hockey and “Battle Camps” is that
teach players skills that will help them win those battles. Don’t be fooled by “Battles” when your child
really needs the skills before they can win the battle!!
What will you
see when your child is on the ice at Corbin Hockey? You will see all players having their own puck
the majority of the time and moving at their own speed. Players who
struggle with the new skills will be encouraged to slow down as technique
is the most important aspect of new skill acquisition.
Instructors will constantly help players make small adjustments to a player's
technique as that is usually the case. It is rarely a "big
change" in sports, it is all about the little details that make a big
Players that grasp new techniques a little more readily will be challenged by
executing the skill at a faster pace: all players having their own puck allows
Corbin Hockey to this. I cannot over emphasize the value of reading the
article below as well as the books identified in it.
The following videos
give you a taste of some of the things that we do during the week and you will
also note that we continue to evolve by bringing new drills to challenge and
improve puck control skills in our participants.
It is also important
to indicate that we teach proven NHL “moves” regularly
used by players at all levels of hockey. The following video is what we
call the Datsyuk "move":
We break down the move
not only into our four steps but also the
different technical aspects of the move (hand and puck
position...). Corbin Hockey prides itself on having instructors who make
the technical corrections in order for your child to learn the skill.
The Datsyuk is the first move that we teach at our camps
because it is the most often used move in the NHL and it also establishes some
important fundamentals for other puck control skills. Make sure you show
your child what they will learn this summer!
This is our 14th successful year!!
