Oilers Hockey Institute is intended to challenge an athlete both physically and mentally, helping them reach their hockey goals. Each session is led by world class instructors and will include on and off ice components that incorporate video analysis and nutrition/training tips. This program is not recommended for athletes who do not already possess a strong technical skill base.

The sessions will be structured around overall themes, which will be highly relevant for today's game of hockey. All drills and concepts will be related to the sessional theme to ensure a clear and beneficial progression of skills. Universal skill development is always valuable; however, as athletes progress through the developmental curve, purposeful and game applicable skill development becomes integral to individual growth.


On-ice instruction will be led by a combination of elite level coaches, local NHL alumni, and former CHL & CIS hockey players. Off-ice instruction will include support from Edmonton Oilers Coaching and Player Development staff, as well as the Oilers Strength and Conditioning team.

This pre-ice setup will ensure that the athletes understand all details before-hand, which will increase the on-ice tempo and each athlete's ability to perform new skills and concepts.
  • The video review component will also incorporate relevant NHL/WHL video clips, to ensure that the athletes understand how all sessional drills and concepts apply to in-game situations.

This includes proper preparation for pre-game warm up and post-game recovery, cool down, regeneration and nutrition.
  • As the player moves along through the weeks there will be stability training and assessments to determine what areas need more focus. To finish off the program, there will be exercises shown to help with quickness, reaction and overall hockey conditioning for your personal at home training program.
