ADVANCED EDGEWORK / POWERSKATING CAMP
The Advanced Edgework and Powerskating camp is not your typical “powerskating” session. The VHTC utilizes many Russian and Swedish edge control drills that challenge a player’s comfort zone. This camp is for players that are proficient skaters that want to be challenged and improve their edge control, agility, acceleration and stride efficiency. Also, there will be a special focus on developing the advanced “linear” crossovers technique with and without a puck.

Such tactics include: shooting in stride, shooting off of bad passes, shooting off either foot, shot release with angle change, attacking from below the goal-line, creating trap doors, 10 and 2 utilization and more!
