Hockey Made Simple
This philosophy simply states that, simple skills require simple movements, and that in a high-paced physical game like ice hockey, you must be very efficient. A good portion of this game is mental, so we have also created ways to develop our student’s minds so they can read and react in high-pressure situations. Our programs focus is to create the best possible athlete, and will instruct its’ students according to their personalities as well as abilities. Students will leave their training sessions with a renewed confidence knowing that they have made progress in such a short period of time.
Since everyone may not be able to afford such a luxury, discount packages and business sponsorships are available for those who meet certain requirements. Steve Phillips will also be holding instructional classes and free seminars throughout the year in order to help parents, coaches, and players better understand the game of hockey.
Although there are many hockey instructors around the world, there are several factors that make us unique. Although most instructors will explain and demonstrate how a skill is performed correctly, at Phillips Hockey we make sure that our students develop a better understanding of each skill by also showing them how and why certain skills are performed incorrectly. Once a player fully understands a skill, it becomes much more simple for them to make corrections themselves, even while playing. Another unique feature of Phillips Hockey is our use of modern high tech video and computer analysis systems along with advanced radar technology in the instructional process. This provides our students a better understanding their abilities through visual cues and will also allow them to retain a record so that they may chart their progress. Parents may also become involved at home with the student, as they track and chart their progress. Having the praise of the instructor along with that of parents and peers proves more effective in increasing a student’s level of self-confidence, which is extremely important in the process of player development.
