Future Jets Spring Hockey

At Jets Hockey Development our programs aim to focus on developing a players individual hockey skills. Throughout your winter season an emphasis is commonly placed on team tactics. This spring is a great opportunity to help your child work on their individual skills, and be introduced to age appropriate team systems and concepts.

During on-ice practices, goaltenders will receive instruction from a dedicated goaltender instructor and will be integrated into drills for immediate learning reinforcement. The focus will be on Angles, Balance, Co-ordination, and improving goalie skating techniques with the common goal of maximizing net space.
