Rep Skills Programs

Atom/Pee Wee Rep Development

All Atom/Pee Wee Rep players are offered a minimum of 5 one hour development sessions offered at primetime, on weekdays between October & February each season, approximately 30-40hrs of programming.  The focus of the sessions is individual skill development.  Players are assigned to skill groups determined by their coaches and attend the development sessions with similar skilled players.

The sessions include but are not limited to;

  • Power Skating (edges/balance, acceleration, starts/stops, agility)
  • Puck Skills (passing, shooting, stickhandling, dekes)
  • Individual Tactics (evasive moves, delays, give & goes - time & space)
