CONACHER BACKYARD HOCKEY

Conacher Backyard Hockey is the building blocks for what could lead to be a NHL career just like Cory Conacher. "Long gone are the days when we could sustain outdoor ice rinks like we did when I was a kid" says Cory. We have moved the same experience of freewheeling hockey indoors and created Backyard Hockey.

50-minute sessions focused on balance, edges / tight turns, stopping, puck control / passing / shooting, forwards and backwards skating. Players are split into stations for drills. These classes end in fun mini-games (groups based on skill) where players get to try out their new skills. The final few classes are a full-ice game to prepare players for full games at the next level. Sessions run:

September-December

January-April

May-June

All games are held on our NHL-sized surfaces, and players shoot on open nets (no goalies!). An extremely fun and relaxed atmsophere for everyone, with Head Instructors Rob Bentivegna and Tyler Flemming. Includes a cool Conacher Backyard Hockey jersey.

PLEASE NOTE: This is NOT a Learn to Skate program. It is highly recommended that your child has had skating lessons.
