What to Expect at the Scoring Concepts Summer Skill Series at PSU
Every Wednesday evening this summer, New Hampshire youth hockey players will have the opportunity to train and develop their skills in a fast-paced environment, and at one of the newest & finest NCAA hockey facilities in the country.
July 3, 10, 17, 24, 31 & August 7, 14, & 21 from 630-745pm at Plymouth State University, Scoring Concepts LLC will host it's Summer Skill Training Series. These 75 minute clinics will feature a half and half setting, where the first 45 minutes are devoted to speed and powerskating and the second 45 minutes are focused on advanced puck skills and stickhandling.
All Scoring Concepts clinics feature 3 main components-
1. Multi-Skill and Overspeed Drills- The head has to be attached to the hands, which have to be attached to the feet. Elite Hockey players become successful when no component of their body restricts the other parts from performing to maximum capacity.
2. Actions over Analysis- Coach Trimble doesn’t waste valuable ice time talking beside a dry erase board, instead, kids are constantly moving. Students are encouraged to complete activities faster than they think they can complete them, while also enjoying an open format where kids can be creative and have fun. Students recieve the technical corrections, generally 1 on 1, while in the process of completing these activities.
3. Competitions- Partner Drills, small area games and activities that foster engagement; push the athletes to go faster, go further, and go with a greater sense of urgency. Taken from his own experiences as a player, Coach Trimble believes that competitive peer pressure is the greatest single motivator in a young athlete’s life. When competition is applied in the optimal context; a fun, uptempo atmosphere, the results can be extraordinary!
Making this experience an even more unique setting will be the special guest coaches and instructors. In addition to having myself and Coach Mike Potenza at the clinics, we will also feature guest coaches with outstanding hockey backgrounds. Working with the goaltenders will be Coach Tom Cayon, a former University of New Hampshire goaltender and current Coach with both the Dover Youth Hockey program and Kingswood Regional High School. Additionally, Justin Soryal, a 5 year pro hockey player with both the New York Rangers and Carolina Hurricanes organizations will be on hand. He will work one on one with individual students. Here are his stats-
Also, Gavin Bayreuther will be in attendance. Gavin played last season in the USHL and next season will begin his NCAA college career at St. Lawrence University. A New Hampshire native, Gavin is looking for the opportunity to train, and also has a passion to become a future coach. Here are his stats- http://www.hockeydb.com/ihdb/stats/pdisplay.php?pid=160531
These clinics will be a progressive format, where each week becomes more challenging. There is no pre-registration required, simply show up at the door and prepare for a good old fashioned "Head Soaker"....
