Can you sense how much your young hockeys are improving already? In this section of your Training Plan, Coach Patrick Burke teaches basic stickhandling drills that will help your players get comfortable with the stick in their hands. It is important to teach them these basics skills because they will use them on all levels of their hockey playing careers.
