MINI RINK

SMALL SPACE CREATIVITY

  • MINI RINK PAGE

Why rent our MINI-RINK?

Because over 80% of the game is played in the Offensive or Defensive zone so players need to be able to handle the puck in a small area!  
USA Hockey’s American Development Model (ADM) stresses the benefits of providing a higher ratio of practice-to-game time on the ice, and the value of ‘shrinking’ the space players have to work with, this in turn increases the number of touches each player gets during practice.Today, many hockey leagues and associations across North America are stressing the benefits of small space training!

 


PLYO-SK8 CAMP - combination of skating treadmill & mini-rink

Coach Cathy has created and developed a unique & innovative skating program on our mini rink. The synthetic ice, by nature, adds resistance; therefore, it increases the muscle recruitment like a band and/or parachute would. PLYO-SK8 is a blend of pylometrics and skating skills that focuses on a progression by increasing agility, quickness, balance, core strength, mobility, body awareness, motor control, coordination and overall athleticism. Cathy has leveraged her knowledge to bring your player this development system that will guarantee to refine and elevate skating performance.
