“Incredible Stickhandling”

This REALLY encourages the fun part of hockey!

This 14-minute video begins with some advice that you’ll probably never hear anywhere else. (I don’t know why other hockey gurus do it, but they too often skip right into the drills without sharing the kind of background information that can make those drills all the more productive.) You’ll discover 16 easy-to-do puckhandling skills that lead to some very complex moves. (I’ve helped 8- and 9-year olds learn the “spinarama” made famous by several past NHL stars, just by helping them master two, very basic stickhandling skills.) Despite my 40-years as a coach and skills analyst, I consider myself a teacher, first and foremost. And this should be evidenced in the very methodical approach I use to order the drills, demonstrate them, and explain each one to you. I think you’ll also appreciate the way I wrap-up your video with suggestions on getting the very most from the overall program.  Just $9.97 SEE BONUS INFO BELOW*

Analyzing the Forward Stride video

Discover the REAL mechanics of hockey skating — as understood by PhDs in biomechanics and physiology, as well as top instructors around the world (no wives’ tales here). Besides describing problem areas in the forward stride, I’ll also share a number of drills that help a skater be faster and more energy efficient. (What is a smooth, powerful stride worth to you? A whole lot more than $9.97, you can be sure!)

Chopped Stix — for stickhandling and a lot more!

Coach Chic made this collection of training aids for about $2 (and anyone could make them).  So that puts the total cost of all the gadgets and the video outlining countless drill ideas to under $10.   And they include fun and challenging exercises — for core strength, balance, and lots of asymmetric stickhandling!  They’re suitable for players from near beginners to adults (so a set could be used by every hockey player in your family).   Coach Chic even has an entire team train at once with their Chopped Stix!
