The development of a hockey player does not stop with practices and games. Chris will often instruct at hockey clinics and can refer his students to some of the area’s teams. Clinics run for approximately six to eight weeks, usually once a week. At times, there are mini clinics that are conducted over the course of a few days.
The purposes of clinics are to practice the fundamental drills and skills that are acquired throughout the hockey season. Clinics are an excellent way to supplement the ice time of games and team practices. Many house leagues do not offer ice time to practice on a consistent basis and, as a result, clinics become an important part of player development. They can be an affordable way to gain valuable ice time for the determined hockey player.
