WHCL Skill Development Program - For WHCL Players Only
The WHCL and the WinSport Skate & Hockey School have developed a program for adult players that would like to improve their game at the fundamental level. You will learn not only to improve your skating skills, but you will have time to work on these skills with and without pucks in a controlled environment.  Many times in a game you don’t get the time you need to build the foundation for better skating, puck control, shooting and individual tactical play, but the WHCL Skills Development program will allow you to take the time needed to work on your hockey skills and give you the opportunity to walk away at the end of the program a more confident player.
Key Goals
● Improve basic hockey skills: passing, shooting and skating
 ● Improve individual and team tactics
