In Partnership with the Town of Edson, the Golden Bears Hockey School is coming to Edson from Monday, August 14 to Friday, August 18, 2017.  With a tradition of great success the Golden Bear Hockey School is committed to teaching excellence. With over 35 years of organizing and teaching experience, participants will receive quality on-ice instruction. The biggest praise from previous participants has been the exceptional value received for the price charged. A Major objective  for both organizations is to make this a positive learning experience for the participant in a fun-filled environment.  This unique and improved hockey school consists of three major sessions  - power skating, off-ice and on-ice training. Each session is appropriately designed for the age group and skill level. Participants will learn about skating techniques such as edge control, balance, quickness, speed, agility and power. They will then apply their skating skills to other skills of the game such as puck control, passing, shooting and checking. On-ice sessions will enable you to practice what you have learned in the other sessions and apply this to game situations. The off-ice session will focus on individual strength, flexibility and endurance; the concepts of the game; and team building exercises. With weather permitting each off-ice session is geared towards an outdoor activity.  Hockey is a team sport, therefore; along with strong individual emphasis you will be involved In Team Building as well.

Before any player is allowed on the ice the player must be dressed in all of the appropriate and properly fitting hockey equipment.
