Making Stridz Athlete Development is pleased to offer an elite skill development camp for players in the Edmonton area looking to take their game to the next level. The camp will focus on improving all aspects of player development, but with a strong emphasis on skating development (including maximum speed, acceleration, transitional speed and tight turns). All players will undergo a skating mechanics assessment during the first session in order to identify strengths and weaknesses in the players skating ability to determine what key points need to be emphasized throughout the remainder of the camp. During the next four sessions, players will work one on one with our Biomechanist on a specific skill (ie. acceleration, tight turns, shooting) with immediate on-site video feedback being provided to the player. This will allow us to make adjustments in the players skill and re-film the skill in order to determine if the changes have been made. The goal of these sessions is to teach the player how to "see, feel and understand" when the correct movement has been done. During the time when a player is undergoing their one on one session, the remainder of the group will be working with the second instructor in order to gain the quality repetitions which are required to make a change in a skill. Our goal is to put your son/daughter through as many quality repetitions as we can during the six ice sessions. During the final ice session, we wll re-film the players and go through a side by side comparison to see if the corrections we outlined during the initial session were successfully completed.
