DEFENSEMEN: TAKE YOUR TECHNICAL AND TACTICAL SKILLS TO THE NEXT LEVEL!

The Masters of Defense Camp is designed for defensemen looking to take their core skills to the next level. This program will
systematically break down the skills and responsibilities of our unique position. Player instruction will stress both technical
and tactical skills using a step-by-step progression through creative, demanding drills that focus on the finer points of playing
defense, leading up to specific game situations.

Technical development sessions will focus on improving the fundamentals of the game (skating, passing, shooting, puck
handling and checking) using our unique drill philosophy. Tactical development sessions will teach the optimization of time
and space, read and react skills, as well as offensive and defensive group dynamics. You will also be taught the art of using
your stick as a defensive tool.

What You Will Learn:

Skating
- backwards skating, transition skating, escape skating with and without the puck.
Puck Movement/ Handling - passing, D to D passing, breakout passing, puck handling with pressure, puck protection.
Defensive Responsibilities and Battles - DZ positioning, board battles, net battles, gap control, angling
