BR Elite Skills Training (B.E.S.T) Winter Sessions

Our B.E.S.T. sessions one of our most popular offerings.  The weekly 1 hour individual skills sessions are offered in the Winter (November to February) and in the Summer (June to  early July).  The sessions are tailored to specific topics and areas that normally get limited coaching (faceoff, shooting & dodging, defense, and goalies). The sessions will be in small groups (8 players or less per coach for faceoff, shooting & dodging, defense, and 3 players or less per coach for goalies). The sessions are open to all area players and a first come, first served basis.

Parent Testimonials

  • "Last nights clinic was awesome. I’ve tried many other of these shooting clinics before and I would say that this one was the best I have done yet. I loved the constant movement and how we were never standing around for that long. Thanks again and looking forward to next week already!" John R  - Shooting Clinic
  • "My son LOVED the session last night.  He appreciated the time each of the coaches took to help him one on one with the dodges and stick positioning.  He loved learning some stick tricks and working on foot skills too. He said he gained confidence in his abilities and is excited to try some of the dodge moves at a tournament this weekend.  He is looking forward to next week’s class!” Gwynne G - Shooting Clinic
  • My son loved the clinic because there was a actual plan for the goalies and not just sitting in the cage for shooting drills that we've experienced at other places." Steve K - Goalie Clinic
  • "I loved the individual attention, small group sizes, & lots & lots of touches. Super encouraging for my son, who lacked a little confidence. What a HUGE difference I have seen already just starting the spring season with his local team." C. Ploskuniak (FOGO & Shooting)
  • Just wanted to let you know that my son has been raving about the Skills session since he got home." Todd W. - Defense Clinic
