SKATING-Our signature class… correct technique taught and expected, even while skaters participate in full speed, kinetically complicated, effective skating drills.

SKILLS– Focus on shooting, passing, battling, positions… and all things hockey.

S&S– Skating and skills are either taught either half and half each week (S&S 50/50) , or on alternating weeks, skating one week and skills the next (S&S ALT), offering complete training for our house, select, and developing hockey players.

TOTAL IMMERSION (new!)– Single skill, in-depth immersion drop-in electives for travel players that want to learn more about the skills that matter most to them. (detailed schedule coming soon!)

*****Skaters may mix and match their classes and rinks to personalize their ColdRush summer program experience! (House/Select players have fewer options for additional weekly classes than our travel students, but the house and select classes include BOTH skating and skills for a complete training experience.)

Answer to a common question about this program:
If there are only 8 weeks of The ColdRush Summer Program, how do the 10, 12, and “UNLIMITED” options work?
The 10, 12, and Unlimited program options are primarily for our travel students. At the Ashburn Ice House we offer 1 skating class AND 1 skills class every week for travel level players.  Additionally, at both rinks we offer our new TOTAL IMMERSION sessions on Fridays, where the skills will change and the instruction goes DEEP on single skills which change weekly. That means that a travel player at the Ashburn Ice House could skate 3 days per week for 8 weeks, or 24 times! Our Kettler travel players have the option to skate twice a week in Arlington, and could also take classes at the Ashburn Ice House as well!
The only catch is that ALL of the classes a student signs up for MUST be an EXACT MATCH for their playing level! (no exceptions) 

Although we do not offer two classes per week at either facility for our house/select students, these skaters are welcome to participate at both rinks if they would like to double up on their ice time. While our travel players have options for more classes,  house/select students have the benefit of receiving both skating AND hockey skills during their class time.
