The Accelerated Skills Advancement Program (ASAP) from First State Ice Hockey is a revolutionary approach to youth hockey player development. ASAP provides intense on-ice training with an individualized focus on skills development to help your player improve their game.
As the centrepiece of First State Ice Hockey’s mission to help every youth hockey player in Delaware realize their full potential on the ice, ASAP is designed to give players instruction in a variety of skill areas while focusing on their individual needs and goals.
Each ASAP “term” will consist of an assessment session and four hour-long clinics led by FSIH hockey director Sean Cannon and a number of well-respected hockey players and coaches from throughout the Mid-Atlantic. After the assessment session, players will be grouped with other players of like skill levels (Levels 1, 2 and 3) to maximize their potential for individual development during the clinics.
In addition to a heightened focus on skating, stick handling, passing, shooting, positioning, decision making and execution from skill experts, there will also be strength/conditioning and goalie coaching components for ASAP participants. After each session, players will receive individualised progress reports and constructive feedback from FSIH coaches.
Our clinics take place at the Skating Club of Wilmington.
The following terms are currently available:
Jan. 17, 5:15 p.m., and Jan. 24, 5:15 p.m. – ASAP BOOST
These “mini-ASAP” sessions are geared toward young and beginning hockey players, but open to all youth hockey players looking to improve their game. Both 60-minute sessions, led by top collegiate players from the area, will give players the building blocks on which to develop their game.
Coaches include: Rece Bergeman, Devin LeBlanc, Kyle Scott, Ivan Sidoriak
Each session is limited to 16 skaters.
