INTENSIVE  at the Kettler Capitals IcePlex (September through early June)

Offered exclusively at the Kettler Capitals IcePlex, this morning program is a fusion of our three most popular programs, Spring Training, Custom Elite, and Semi-private lessons.  A vigorous weekly program that delivers concentrated instruction on a specific area of hockey skating in a short time.   This series of 45-minute sessions, focuses intensely on one skill per week, with three different coaches, giving students a chance to gain in-depth skill knowledge through a variety of teaching tactics, drills, and coaching styles. By the end of the series, the students will have gained a greater understanding of several different vital hockey skating skills, executed with and without pucks.

DROP-INs (Offered occasionally at the Ashburn Ice House throughout the year when ice becomes available.)  
These a la carte, single skill focused sessions are available on a drop-in basis to current students, former students, and guest skaters.  Registration is fist come first served, opening on Sunday night and closing on Wednesday night before each session. The focus skill changes each week, so that players can choose the topics they want a little extra work on. DROP-INs are available on Thursday mornings at the Ashburn Ice House.
