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.  Copy and paste the following in the address bar:

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 one battles! 

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 we 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 difference.

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!!
