About CWS Clinics

clinic-skatersCWS offers clinics for all skill levels - from beginner to advanced. Our clinics are scheduled throughout the year with convenient morning or evening time slots. Practices are held once a week and are generally 60 minutes long. The majority of ice time is spent on hockey skills instruction. Each practice ends with a 15 minute scrimmage or small area game-play where players test their new skills.

Not sure which level is right for you? Can't commit full-time? No problem. We offer different options to accommodate your schedule. Sign-up as a full time, part-time or a drop-in skater (*). Missed a clinic? Don't worry. You can make it up at any other currently running clinic for no additional cost. What a deal!

(*) Minimum number of skaters required to register as a drop-in.

Clinic Focus: Skating Fundamentals

If you've never put on hockey skates before, or have little skating experience, this clinic is right for you. Our beginner clinics are structured for new skaters or ladies who want to review and work on skating fundamentals. These clinics primarily focus on skating skills including strides, stops and basic transitions. Stickhandling and passing are added during the last few practices.

Clinic Focus: Passing / Game Play

Our advanced beginner clinics are structured for skaters with 1 to 2 years of hockey experience. In these clinics we cover skating drills, transitions, passing, shooting and introduce game play skills. You'll learn about each player position and how to work together as a team. Chalk talks prior to each practice may also be covered. Each practice ends with a whistle stop scrimmage to give immediate feedback on the play.
