Stick spinning is a high-paced on-ice session of puck handling drills for those who want to improve their feel with the stick while creating good habits at a high tempo.This class positively impacts a player's ability to control the puck and increases their confidence as a result. 

Why stick spinning?

  • Your age or skill level don't matter. Everyone will have a puck on their stick and be competing against themselves to better each skill with each repetition alongside players around them.
  • Stick spinning allows for a grueling love/hate relationship with the puck.
  • Just like spinning classes at a gym, you have the opportunity to be your best in a positive yet challenging and motivating environment.

General format:

  • Repetitions consisting of a stick handling skill, a shot and a short skating burst that last approximately the length of a typical shift (30-45 seconds). 
  • Muscle memory is key to mastering skills which is why we repeat each rep 3-4 times.
  • Technique, stance, grip, footwork and utilizing peripheral vision are emphasized. 
  • Stick spinning is the best way to improve your hands while simultaneously progressing through a great anaerobic workout.
