The Academy specializes in advanced hockey instruction for the advanced player.
Hockey for the most is taught as a collection of skills such as skating, passing, shooting etc. When these skills are put together, the integrated hockey approach leads to optimum player development. The problem in most clubs is that these skills are not put together to form any basic concept or philosophy of play.
The intelligent player is the one who understands the flow of the game. He has identified the limited number of possibilities that exist at any time and narrowed them down to 1st & 2nd best alternatives.
By teaching basic concepts and principles we can introduce situations that occur over and over again while suppling the successful alternatives to shorten the 10,000 hour rule.
The Spartans Academy has distinguished itself as an advanced approach to developing the Complete Hockey Player. A player who not only possesses the raw skills necessary to move through the ranks but also the mental skills and hockey knowledge to truly make the most of their talent and excel to their highest potential.
This is done by creating an environment is very conducive to learning, as more attention is given to each individual player in terms of showing, correction, and support.
