MaxPro VIP Elite Hockey Skills: August

Program Name

MaxPro VIP Elite Hockey Skills: August 

Program Description

Each training session offers two hours of our traditional MaxPro Elite Hockey Skills training in a small-group format.

The basis of the teaching strategy for MaxPro Elite Hockey Skills is to combine the strongest Russian and North American hockey training techniques. Russia has been a dominant force in international hockey for the past several decades. This is due to the rigorous methods used in training and educating hockey players, with a focus on techniques. The emphasis of the MaxPro Elite Hockey Skills program is on the development of skating techniques and game strategies. Skillful skating techniques are an important part of becoming an accomplished hockey player. The MaxPro Elite Hockey Skills program incorporates the traditional, powerful, straight-ahead approach of North American skating, with the high-speed, fluid maneuverability of the Russians. The program also combines the team tactics of Russian tradition, with the more assertive North American style.

Only ten players will be accepted into this program.  The small coach-to-player ratio provides what feels like a one-on-one experience for the players. This program is not suitable for goaltenders.

Program Coaching

MaxPro Hockey Club Owner and former professional player Max Gratchev will conduct all training sessions. Our highly qualified assistant coaches will assist or substitute as needed.
