Beginning this Spring, Stick Skillz is partnering with Ball Hockey International (BHi) to offer Stick Skillz Academy at all BHi locations. The goal of Stick Skillz Academy is to provide ball hockey lessons to players of all ages and ability levels in order to improve their skills and grow the sport of ball hockey.
Stick Skillz Academy is perfect for a player who has never played ball hockey before regardless of age. The goal of this program is to teach entry-level players basic ball hockey skills in a comfortable environment that is not intimidating. This program will give first time players the knowledge and confidence to apply their new skills in a game with their friends.
The objectives of the Stick Skillz Academy:
- Learn and have fun.
- Engage in physical activity.
- Build an appreciation for the sport of ball hockey.
- Develop basic ball hockey skills, such as passing and shooting.
- Familiarize themselves with the different positions, players, and rules of ball hockey.
Stick Skillz Academy also offers training for elite level ball hockey players to learn and develop their skills to take them to the next level. All activities are designed to contribute to total ball hockey development, and is available to players of all ages.
The program is loaded with a variety of skill development specific to ball hockey players, and will include work to develop strength, power, speed, agility, quickness, and conditioning.
Both of these programs are ten sessions, and will be led by our accomplished team of instructors. Cost to register is $100 plus HST, and all players will receive an exclusive Stick Skillz t-shirt and hat. Individual clinics are available to BHi registered players for $10 or $15 for non BHi registered players.
