Skill Development Sessions
This year SPS Fuzion is offering a variety of skills sessions for registered players. As sessions are scheduled, sign up links will be posted below.
We will be working with the following partners to offer development sessions for the 2022-2023 season:
Pro Stride Hockey
Why train with Pro Stride Hockey?
At a regular team practice coaches don’t have time to break down skills and mechanics so players often don’t get the proper fundamentals unless they go elsewhere for training. At Pro Stride Hockey we will ensure that your players are taught the fundamentals and proper mechanics of skating, shooting, stickhandling and passing allowing them to take the skills learned into game play to become the best player they can. Our coaches are experienced with all skill levels of players from U7 to U18AAA , we will be able to identify where players need the most improvement and deliver high end instruction to ensure the players get better with each session.
Pro Stride hockey has affiliated with Tim Turk Hockey to teach players how to properly shoot the puck. Tim is a NHL shooting and scoring coach who has worked with many NHL teams and players including the Montreal Canadians and Tampa Bay Lightning. Tim has helped many NHL, AHL, CHL and European professional players and teams improve their shooting and scoring. We are proud to say we are the only facility in Western Canada Tim has approved to use his program and his terminology. Tim has personally trained with most of our staff to ensure we are teaching his program the way he intended it to be taught. We will teach players the proper mechanics of shooting along with how to use the technology of the hockey stick to better improve their release, shot power, and accuracy. This is all done on skates and can be done while skating and moving to simulate game situations. You will see an improvement in the players shot after just 1 visit.
