NSHDA's 2009 All-Stars

Welcome to NSHDA's 2009 All-Stars Spring Invitational Team. This is an invite only tournament team.

NSHDA is derived from the recognition that to build high level athletes it takes quality repetitions and advanced techniques. Hockey skills will be taught in a repetitive manner making the core fundamentals second nature so players can execute in competition. This spring program is for the ones who inspire to play at an elite level and are committed to the game of hockey.

This training routine will concentrate on core skill fundamentals. Focus will be on skating/edges, passing, stick handling, shooting, defensive plays, offensive plays, and small area battles. Coaching emphasis will be on technique, repetition, constant feedback, and mastering of the skill. 

Each player will receive a NSHDA All-Stars Jersey, Socks and NSHDA T-Shirt.
