SUNRISE SKILLS FEATURES

INDIVIDUAL ATTENTION
The player-to-instructor ratio for these small groups will be no more than 8-to-1. This low ratio will allow the instructor to assess each player’s strengths and weaknesses.  We will then work to improve the identified weaknesses, and build upon the strengths of each player.

PROFESSIONAL INSTRUCTION
Eric Johnson, Adam Kragthorpe & Josh Winter are Lead Instructors

CUSTOM GROUPS
Program is built on a combination of technical skating skills and stickhandling skills.  However, groups can choose to customize the focus to only skating skills or only stick skills for the 10 week session.
