Consistent with the qualities that Coldrush is notorious for; personalized attention to detail, targeted level training partners, creative drills, and proven techniques, we unveil our NEWEST program, The ColdRush INTENSIVE!

 What is the ColdRush INTENSIVE?

The ColdRush INTENSIVE is a vigorous weekly morning program that delivers concentrated instruction on a specific area of hockey skating in a short time.   It is a fusion of three of our most popular programs, Custom Elite Camp, Spring Training, and Semi-private Lessons. It is a series of weekly 45-minute sessions, that focus 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 many different vital hockey skating skills, executed with and without pucks.

What happens during a ColdRush INTENSIVE?

Class begins with a short (about 5 minutes) comprehensive group warm-up, utilizing movements that are designed to create specific kinetic memories, integral to a strong hockey foundation.   These same movements will be repeated each week throughout the series, as it is through repetition that the body masters correct habits. Students are then separated into their training groups of no more than 8 students of the same age and level for the remainder of the session. Each training group will spend an equal amount of time with the three ColdRush instructors on the ice. All instructors will be teaching the same skating skill of the week, but from different angles, using a variety of drills, each focusing on a different aspect of that skill.   The overall message will be the same from all three instructors, but each coach will add different set of details to the big picture of the day.


Offered exclusively at the Kettler Capitals IcePlex.

Students are assigned to one class day/time. Classes are not interchangeable.

Students are placed into training groups with no more than 8 skaters of their same age/level.

All INTENSIVE students will work with Wendy each week!!!*

Pucks, as they relate to the weekly skill, will be used

All students registered in the ColdRush Intensives will have an opportunity to re-register for the next series, before any open spots are made available to skaters on the wait list. 

*Wendy is on the ice for all INTENSIVE sessions, except in the event of illness, travel, or unexpected urgent matters.


The ColdRush INTENSIVE is available September – June. Check back in August for 2017 Fall INTENSIVE information. In the meantime we will be offering the ColdRush Summer Program at both the Ketler Captials IcePlex and the Ashburn Ice House.
