TechniquePowerSpeed.  This carefully designed hockey skating program focuses on proper skating technique, power, and speed.  Components include stride length development, push angle and recovery, inside and outside edge control, overall quickness, and transition skating.  Players will experience the value of and effectiveness of overspeed and resistance training.  Program also includes individual puck skills focusing on speed and creativity with the puck.

Doug Shepherd is a professional hockey skating and development coach.  A graduate of Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, and former Assistant Captain of the RPI Men’s Hockey Team, Doug enjoyed a productive career at both the NCAA Div. I and Minor Professional level.  Doug worked in player development roles for the Winnipeg Jets, Manitoba Moose (AHL), and the University of Prince Edward Island.  Doug is currently a certified NHLPA Player Agent with Achieve Sports Management.  He has worked with McQuaid (Boston Bruins), Dion Phaneuf (Ottawa Senators and Toronto Maple Leafs) and Sidney Crosby (Pittsburgh Penguins) as a skating coach.  Doug has helped several players from Northern Virginia reach the junior and college hockey ranks.  He is joining Ion this holiday season to share that knowledge and experience with you.

Camp includes a Parent Hot Stove session with Doug Shepard and Craig Desjarlais to discuss the “Hockey Advancement Path” with parents and players. What are the options to play junior and college hockey?  How do I get there?  Doug and his team will discuss these ideas and present real-world scenarios players can use to forge their own development path.

The camp also includes a coaches symposium on ice with a power skating demo.  This session is available to all area coaches and will provide a host of skating-specific drills they can use with their own teams.

Based  on the nature of this camp, groups limited to 25 skaters per session, and restricted to AAA and Select AA players.

Camp Cost: $265
