What Makes Hand Made Hockey Stand Out
Thanks for stopping by our blog. If you’re looking for more information about Hand Made Hockey, you’ve come to the right place.
About Hand Made Hockey
We are a hockey skills and development company based out of Ottawa, ON and offer our programs in the form of private or semi-private group and team sessions. For our mobile team sessions, we arrive at the team’s location and accommodate their ice times, rather than having them plan their schedule around ours. Nonetheless, we work seven days a week between six in the morning and midnight.
While we are a relatively new venture, we are proud of the overall success we’ve had in a short amount of time. We take great pride in being the first to start mobile team sessions in Ottawa, and although it has since been copied, we will continue to be innovators in this market in the future. We have also made massive strides in our first year with all of the teams we are working with (eighteen teams this winter), three winter camps, two summer camps as well as all of our sessions.
We have also formed a partnership with an industry-leading clothing company, been sponsored by CCM and partnered with River Oak Skating Trail. Our collaboration with River Oak was a unique learning experience as it allowed us to conduct skills sessions on a skating trail in the outdoors.
Our vision for next year is to work with an organization as their skills and development coaches. For example, the entire NMHA minor hockey organization would have “X” amount of sessions with us throughout the year to develop their entire program.
The Hand Made Hockey Difference
We are not a traditional hockey camp, and as a skills and development company, our forte lies in developing the fundamental skills needed to perform at a high level. We have two coaches who attend every session, every camp, and every event. They make it a point to personally interact with each player, track their progress, and develop relationships with not only the players but the coaches and parents as well.
The reason Hand Made Hockey has made massive inroads in coaching since we established in June 2018 is that we have high-level playing experience (from College hockey to Professional) and we have over twenty-five combined years of senior coaching experience (from Junior to College) amongst the coaches.
Another aspect that makes us second to none is our teaching method. Our ‘on-the-spot stop and correct technique’ is our specialty. This means that rather than letting the players run through the drills multiple times and develop incorrect habits, we stop the player on the spot, correct what needs correcting and follow the player through to reinforce what was explained.
Our unique and proven training techniques have helped train and groom many successful hockey players. We look forward to increasing our client base and continuing to help young hockey players grow across the National Capital Region.
