Hi guys, i have a 8 yr old going in to Atom next year. We have just finished up our last year in novice tier2. He was asked to play on a div1 spring team but i didnt have the 1200 bucks!(we are a rural team and routinely beat tier2 teams in calgary) Im a certified coach and have done most of Hockey Canadas specialty clinics, but i want your guys input. His strengths are his hockey sense and crazy hands and heads up skating. He has a good stride but it isnt lightning fast. He is VERY strong on the puck. His weakness is quick speed, and energy levels at times in games is below average. I want to dedicate 2 evenings a week to offseason training! it has to be fun and effective!
