What You Will Learn at Richmond Hockey Camps
by: Glenn Wheeler

For those who are interested in improving their hockey game, the best thing to do is to enroll in a hockey camp. There are many hockey camps across the nation and the best thing about this is that each one will deliver a tried and tested method that will surely improve your game. You will learn a lot of techniques aside from skating in a hockey camp, and these techniques are going to improve your game a lot.

One technique that you will learn in hockey camp would be the passing technique. There are lots of opportunities to perform passing techniques during an entire game of hockey. On the ice, you can do passing techniques in a defensive zone breakout, a neutral zone puck movement, a stretch pass and even an offensive zone that will require you to do giving and going, cycling and others. Each type of pass will demand from you the utilization of various techniques. These techniques also include passes that will allow the continuous give and take between two team members all the while exercising total control of your puck, passing back and forth with the forehand technique or the backhand technique while at top speed, making saucer passes, snap passes and tip passes and doing cycling as well as give and goes. All of these techniques and strategies are the basic requirements if you want a good system of passing and are therefore practiced with skill-specific drill objectives alongside on-ice and off-ice demonstrations and instruction.

Aside from passing, stick handling is also always taken up – and with much reason, since this will be your gateway in scoring points in the game. For some people, they have forgotten that the skill of stick handling is also an art. This is especially true since it can also do a lot to tremendously improve one’s own style of play and therefore encourage better confidence across a variety of game situations. With stick handling, you will undergo various techniques such as puck control and dribbling, feinting left and feinting right, moving to protect the puck, driving using the puck and also exercising a variety of push and pull puck skills. These are important things which you ought to master because it will improve your ability to move up and down the ice in many situations throughout game play that will require the use of your individual skills.

And of course, you will also learn a variety of physical techniques in training at hockey camps. This will of course depend on the age as well as skill level that you have, including instruction necessary for safer body contact as prescribed by the rules of the game. These physical techniques will have you learning about the following: protecting your body during all times, learning the right way to angle and pin an opponent, perform evasive techniques, learn different opportunities for open ice contacts, exercise hip checks while using the boards and knowing what the right timing situations are at different opportunities and situations.
