Our 2024 program is now finalized and it will include the following content;

** NOTE: We will be honoring Patrick Kane (Detroit Red Wings) throughout the summer, as Patrick was a student in our Buffalo location as 10, 11 & 12 year old. We will be giving away free Kane posters and we will be comparing all students to Patrick Kane with our split screen Video Analysis process, on a daily basis.

1. On-Ice Program: Our on-ice drills are specifically designed to continually challenge our students with a high rate of repetitions (no standing around). All students will work on the following skills; POWER SKATING: Forward Stride, Tight Turns, Backwards Skating, Stops & Starts and PUCKHANDLING: Passing, Shooting, 1 on 1’s, 2 on 1’s, 2 on 2’s & Intro. To Checking. We will also be offering a “Shoot-Out Challenge” for each group, to crown our Shoot-Out Champions – prizes available!

2. Video Analysis: New Pro Videos, new cut-out comparisons. Each student will be video analyzed in a different drill, each day. All video analysis recordings will be transferred as MP4 computer files and placed on each student’s take-home Flash Drive ($20.00 Choice). Clearly our best guarantee for a quality hockey education!

3. Goalie Program: We will be offering new drills including; The Tip-Shot Save, Screen Shot Saves, Post To Post Drills, Passing Drills & Rebound Save Drills. We will also be offering new video analysis techniques, including Pro Cut-Out Analysis. As a side note, we travel a Goalie Instructor to each of our SIHA locations.

4. Off-Ice Shooting Program: Through the use of our SIHA I-Pads, our staff will be able to video analyze all student’s off-ice shots, on a daily basis (video telestration and slow motion replay). All students will shoot approximately 500 pucks over the course of the week (Wrist, Snap, Slap & Backhand Shots).

5. Off-Ice Program: We will be conducting, fully supervised daily lectures, recreation and Russian Training (off-ice conditioning) to enhance our student’s SIHA experience, offering an even balance of hard work and fun on a daily basis.
