Skills Camp

This 4 week program meets twice a week and is geared for players looking to improve their overall game. It will feature detailed training designed to teach and enhance the fundamentals of players on skills, providing the instruction and expertise needed for Elite Stickhandling, Shooting & Goal Scoring, Explosive Speed, Dynamic Moves and Increased Hockey IQ.

The curriculum for this program will be a mix of high intensity drills as well as drills we use to slow things to down to the ability of each player. Players are shown ways to strengthen their skills and improve their overall game. The main focus for this program is designed to develop the ability and confidence of the player regardless of skill level or age.

Power Skating

This 9 week program will focus on all facets of skating from edge work, explosiveness, balance, agility and power through a series of specifically designed drills. Players will use a variety of training tools such as bands, parachutes, video analysis, and new state-of-the-art electronic timing software.  Skaters will develop a more explosive and longer stride, learn how to trust their edges, and will be challenged to become better skaters each session. The sessions will be skating intensive, with very little, if any, stick handling or shooting included.

Learn to Play I & Learn to Play II

The St. Louis Rockets’ Learn-to-Play (LTP) program is a fantastic opportunity for children new to hockey to experience the game and receive great coaching at a fantastic price. Learn to Play is designed for players who have already taken Learn to Skate and/or Little Blues or LTP I.

Checking Clinic

Participants will work on edge and body control to learn the basics of giving and receiving body contact. Skaters will also learn the proper way to angle opposing players into areas where body contact is prevalent.

The Scholarship Program that Gives Back to the Hockey Community!

The St. Louis Rockets Hockey Association is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization.  We are a fully-sanctioned member of USA Hockey, and we rely on the collaborative efforts of many people who volunteer their efforts in providing a forum for youth ice hockey. While our players have a wide range of skill levels, they are all committed to the sport and display an intense desire to improve as athletes and individuals. 
 
Our programs stress sportsmanship, friendship, goodwill, and strong values.  Our players go on to play high school hockey, win state championships and earn collegiate scholarship opportunities, but all of our players take away lifetime skills, team concepts and relationships that will benefit them both on and off the ice.
