About On Ice Instruction

In addition to our Adult Skill Clinic, adult students can participate in this program designed for players who are looking for a “fast-track” method for improving skating, stickhandling, and shooting. Emphasis is on providing players with detailed information on how to improve their weakest areas while simultaneously increasing their power, speed, and agility. Year-round enrollment in this program almost guarantees these players the opportunity to be a "first-line" player. Hockey Masters also provides goalie coaching with John Winkelseth. Goalies pay only $10 for their ice fee.

Lessons are 1/2 hour in length and can be private or semi-private. Coaches should be contacted in advance to arrange specific times and dates. Call John Winkelseth at (734) 320-1964 for questions about our program or guidance in selecting a coach. More than one lesson can be arranged in a 3-hour ice session. The other hour or hour-and-a-half can be used to practice skills or to just have fun!

* Full equipment is required.
