High Performance Program
U9 - U11 - U13
PlayPro Hockey - Prospect Program
We are offering a program focused on developing kids who seek competition outside of their local playing area. This program is aimed at an early introduction to AAA hockey whereby we follow a more traditional method of 3 line hockey during camps, 45 second shifts during games along with Dryland skills instruction and Certified High Performance coaching instruction both on ice and off.
Our focus is to bring together a group of kids from Western NL and Labrador to train, practice and embrace a High Performance program with both Hockey Canada Certified High Performance coaching along with Hockey Canada Certified skills coaching to focus on player development and culminating with a year end prospect Tournament in Eastern Canada and Pre Tournament exhibition games to help prepare both team and players for competition.
We will offer 3 camps along with guidance and instruction between camps for off ice training and fitness to ensure all players attending are working towards the same goals both individually and in terms of team outcomes.

Everyones definition of fun is different, for some kids they play for the love of the game and friendship, while other athletes have a focus and passion to play at the highest levels of hockey, enjoy practicing and developing skills & competing at their highest level. We are looking at working with kids who have both potential and the drive to succeed in hockey and want to go all in with development.
Target Group - If you aspire to play with Provincial HPP teams and eventually at the AAA Bantam or Midget level and are presently amongst the top 1/3 in terms of skill in your local minor hockey association, this program maybe a good fit for your child. If you want to be introduced to this level of programming at an early age (U9 - U11 - U13) this program will serve you in the following areas of development;
- Technical Skills Training - Skating, Shot, Passing, Puck Skills
- Tactical IQ - Individual, Small Group play and Team Systems
- Physcial Fitness - At home or local training support for athletes
- Mental and Social - Preparing athletes for high performance
Development as an athlete doesn't happen based on the number of games played or camps attended. Player development is Holistic and involves - On Ice training, Off ice Skills practice, Periodized fitness training, Nutritional Plan, Support System/ Family and other factors that we will help both players and parents understand as they learn to properly invest there time & money and realize that when it comes to reaching goals and outcomes, in terms of on ice games, less is more...
If you spend the majority of your time & money towards on ice and do little in terms of off ice (Fitness, Nutrition, Periodization, Rest) then you may be missing the mark in terms of best value for your $$, time and expectations.
This program will help both players and parents navigate the hockey gauntlet, avoiding pit falls, saving money and helping in terms of player development year around with guidance, coaching and comprehensive player development producing athletes ready to compete for Provincial HPP tryouts and play at the Provincial AAA level.
You don't have to be Elite to get started, but you do have to get started in training to be elite in Hockey.
High Performance Training isn't for everyone, but for anyone wanting to play hockey at the elite level, we are focused on the long terms results vs just dropping the puck to play shinny.
