B - Skating is where it all begins!
BASIC skating drills will be taught on proper edges and balance. These drills will result in increased speed and agility. Backward skating will be taught at all levels and transitional drills for all levels of skating.
U - Skating is not enough!
UNDERSTANDING how to anticipate the play and be in the proper position is extremely important. Cross-ice play with stoppages to give instructions during play will be part of each session. Hockey is a cerebral sport and becomes more important as the game speeds up.
D - Our mandate for each clinic.
DEVELOPING all players regardless of level is our commitment to participants of BUDS 4 HOCKEY. Through instruction from our experienced coaches the player will improve in all aspects of playing the game.
S - Playing the greatest game in the world!
SKILLS such as stick-handling, passing and shooting will be taught at all levels. The earlier these skills are taught through repetition the more natural they will become and will translate more easily to game situations. Puck movement will be taught to advanced players as the pace of play speeds up as they continue their development.

Her mother sent me this photo along with a note:
Hope all is well. We miss seeing you with Ava on the ice. This pic came up on my Facebook memories today of you and Ava 8 years ago. It’s been a crazy but very successful hockey season with Ava & her team winning The Detroit Elite Girls Invite and beating the top teams in the Nation. Ava came out on top in the tournament with points. Then they swept the EJEPL to win that championship and took States, pretty amazing. You’re one of the biggest reason for her success so I wanted to share what was going on and say thank you 😁
Ava made the varsity hockey team for Paramus Catholic this past season. She played great and was one of the top players in points. We just found out that she made all league honorable mention in the Big North!
Ava will be attending Lawrence Academy. When we visited the campus about a year and a half ago, it’s the school that felt most tight knit, safe, hockey rink is great and the campus is beautiful!
Thank you for always having Ava’s best interests in the forefront and helping her with this long, stressful process. She is over the moon happy and excited, it’s a dream come true for her.
