RSCA SPRING SKILLS SESSIONS

We originally had turf sessions booked at UBC with hopes of repeating our successful RSCA 3-Game Series in the Fall. These planned games would have allowed us to film, assess, and continue our work on athlete recruitment and learning videos.

 

Why?
RSCA Coaches have agreed that while game-play is not possible at this time, these turf time slots can be utilized to have a more focused, and skill-specific program. We recognize that many of our athletes (like myself) learn more efficiently visually than the constant verbal feedback at training. We hope this more specified program can help fast-forward the mastering of these core technical elements for our athletes.

How?

A more dedicated focus on a handful of fundamental core hockey technical skills and provide an environment which we can breakdown, either using repetition and video feedback, thus providing a solid foundation for these skills and specific individual feedback for our athletes.

Provide a training environment where athletes can focus on specific core technical skills by focusing on only two skills in a session.

 

Components of a session?

1. Warm-up
 

2. Split group
 

3. Side A

    a. Skills assessment (Film) 

    b. Drill One – Break down key areas in Preparation / Action and Recovery

    c. Drill Two – Repetition (film for feedback and scouting footage)
 

4. Side B – Same as above ( then swap)

   a. Skills assessment (Film) 

   b. Drill One – Break down key areas in Preparation / Action and Recovery

   c. Drill Two – Repetition (film for feedback and scouting footage)
 

5. Follow up

Each athlete will receive an individual Assessment/Feedback Video with a comparison of 'what good looks like' and their video as they execute the skills. There will also be some some written coaching points which will allow the athletes clearly understand where they can make adjustments to refine the skills we have worked on through the program. We hope these videos and feedback points will allow our athletes to train and perfect their skills on their own during the summer.
