Please note: Skills Plus Hockey is “A Licenced Hockey Canada Skills Development Program”  and has a lot of on and off ice teaching and training aids / equipment to challenge players at their skills and drills. I encourage you to form a group to gain, train, and benefit from a unique training opportunity right here in Waterloo Region.

Come and cool down at the rink and get and edge on your skills, Eric 

Each Skills Plus Hockey Program / Camp is very individual skill based and often uses a passing partner (s) with numerous drills and skills. Your group will have it’s own space on the ice to train…enhancing speed, execution, quality and quantity. The game of Hockey happens in a small space. In games you’ll often have all ten players enclosed in one zone on the ice. Coaches are looking for players who can play in a tight space with speed and who can execute theirs ability to escape pressure, pass successful and get a shot away on the net. These are the players that are successful in games whether it’s the NHL, AAA, MD or Recreational Hockey. Skills, Skills and more is a monumental key to success. How do you get better in a small space…train in it.

I encourage you to look at the options and check the availability in the winter programs currently running and the upcoming Spring Programs starting in May (will be posted soon)

Here’s the link to click for all the fall programs


Kind regards and best wishes for a successful finish to the hockey season! I encourage you to sign up with a friend (s) and share the info with teammates. 

Thanks Eric
