Philosophy

Our focus is on complete player development! Our Fusion program is all about individual player development in a team environment.  It is called the off-season for a reason. Our goal is to make sure every athlete leaves the off-season a significantly better hockey player.  Practices will cover various areas of the game in order to see the necessary improvements going into the following years association tryouts.

Practices

Practices are designed to cover all areas of the game:

  • Skills
  • Hockey IQ and Smarts
  • Game Concepts and Situations

Scrimmages and Tournaments

Games are an important part of development.  Our coaches utilize the games/tournaments to:

  1. Evaluate the individual player's skills, hockey IQ, effort/compete
  2. Teach the team how to play at a championship level (not necessarily win championships)

We believe effort and attitude come first.  They are going to make mistakes, have bad shifts, etc, but if the effort and focus is there, that’s all our coaching staff can ask. We focus on the intangibles and doing the little things as a player.  Team comes first. We want young hockey players to understand the importance of playing as a team, supporting each other on and off the ice, and staying discipline.  They will learn how to play at a championship level, which means - winning 1v1 battles, back-checking, pressuring the puck, puck movement, and being positive on the bench regardless of the score or what happens throughout the game.
