preseason_CLINIC_logo (1)The Preseason Position Clinic is a three-day position specific clinic for forwards, defensemen and goaltenders ages 11 to 14. Our focus at this clinic is to introduce, teach, and develop the details associated with each position in the game. Many players today have spent a great deal of time developing the fundamental skills needed to play hockey. The next step in their development is to learn and practice the specific skills and habits that will help them improve their performance in their respective position.
