Hockey Skills... S o c i a l l y D i s t a n c e d !

We are extremely excited to inform you that on-ice hockey development is returning to Vancouver Island with a program called Super Skills Hockey Development.

The Vancouver Island Health Authority has given final approval for small group and socially distanced hockey development at the Charlie Purdey Arena (Shawnigan Lake School) and we will be offering sessions starting Saturday May 30th that will go until Sunday Aug 2nd.

Player only (no goalie) skill sessions will be delivered by top professional coaches including Brian Passmore, Rob Armstrong, Jeff Compton and others. Players will be instructed on the ice by coaches in groups of 5-8 in remote locations of the ice. Activities will focus on the individual development of puck handling, shooting, skating and decision making at speed. Players will do only activities that maintain the appropriate distance. NO direct contact will be permitted so we will not be able to provide small area games, battle drills etc.

*Note that SuperSkills Hockey Development is NOT part of Shawnigan Lake School, Monarchs Hockey, Island Stars, International Stars or Hockey-Evolution programs.

Safety protocols that are in alignment with the BC Provincial Health Officer’s recommendations - ‘CLASS ORDER (mass gatherings) re: COVID-19’  have been designed specifically for the private arena and are ready to deploy (see attached). Players will maintain safe distances from start to finish and extra staff with specific response duties have been hired (dressing room and arena pathway descriptions attached - note it will be drop-off and pick-up only, with no entry to the facility permitted by parents). Parents will be required to sign an informed consent waiver.

In total we will have 39 sessions available for each age group that you will be able to choose using our online scheduling platform. You will be able to purchase punch-cards of 10 sessions for $500 +GST ($525) maximum 3 punch-cards per player. Sessions will be limited to 16 skaters. If the facility is required to close by health order, all unused sessions will be refunded.
