The HockeyKinetix portion of the program highlights a series of High Performance Training and Skill Development for Bantam, Pee Wee, Squirt and Mite players devoted to reviewing and improving comprehensive skills and techniques through repetition training,

As a club, we have made a shift into a more comprehensive development skills, training and education program featuring HockeyKinetix.  HockeyKinetix is a collaboration of specialty clinics, small area games, and off-ice development packaged into a 7-week timeframe involving our entire coaching staff.

A variety of important teachings will be offered, including: Hockey Character & How to be a good Teammate; Skating Proficiency (Lead Instructor: Shawn Pitcher); Principles of Body Contact; Lead Instructor: Barry Dreger); Stickhandling (Lead Instructor: Jeff Turcotte); Passing and Shooting with Accuracy (Lead Instructor: Jack Bowkus); Defensive Tactics (Lead Instructor: Jaroslav Modry); and Goaltender Proficiency (Leads: Tommy Tartaglione & Jamie Storr).

SKATING: All facets of edge control, power stride, accelerated starts, stops, forward, backward, lateral.   Skating is the most overlooked skill that players devote the least amount of practice.

STICKHANDLING: All facets of puck control including accurate passing and puck receiving.

SHOOTING: Work specifically with players to improve all facets of shot skills. Perhaps work this class in conjunction with the goal tending clinic.

CHECKING COURSE: (Bantams Only) The Principles of Body Contact. Strongly advising all 1st year Bantams, emphasizing the recognition of dangerous situations.

GOALTENDING: Emphasizing the mental and physical aspects of the game including: in-game focus and recognition along with save and recovery fundamentals.  We are going to work with your player on preventing goals.

DEFENSIVE TACTICS: Clinic to work with specific areas of responsibilities and the strategies and aspects of playing a defensive role.  Clinic will also include some "tricks of the defensive trade"

HOCKEY CHARACTER/HOW TO BE A GOOD TEAMMATE: Creating a culture that emphasizes being a good teammate is the singularly most important concept for players who are serious about hockey. Jr Kings HockeyKinetix program and its’ coaches will work with players at all levels on this element of the 7-week program.

The HockeyKinetix product will consist for 14 hours of on-ice instruction for all Mite-Bantam aged players.  This program will start Monday April 4th and run through May 25th. The cost of the HockeyKinetix program is $300.00 per player and $200.00 for goaltenders.
