P.O.W.E.R. Skating Hockey Clinic Fall 2022


September 9 - 11, 2022

Michigan Tech Recreation is pleased to announce the upcoming P.O.W.E.R. SKATING HOCKEY SKILLS CLINIC. The main focus of the on-ice sessions will consist of deep edge control, quick transitions, agility, and balance drills as well as many other skating movements that are applicable to the game of hockey. The off-ice portion will demonstrate dynamic warm-ups and provide examples of off-ice training drills that will compliment and improve a player's on-ice performance. 

Whether you need to make improvements on certain skating skills or further develop skills that you already know, this clinic will cater to all of your skating and training needs!

Age groups are for the 2022-2023 hockey season. Please note that the schedule times and/or age groupings are subject to slight adjustments or changes based on the number of players enrolled in each age group. If need be, participants will be notified of any changes before the start of the clinic.
