TRACK 1- Winter Extension

The Winter Extension Program offers supplemental development along with the player’s current club hockey commitment. WLHD commitments should not interfere with the athlete’s NorCal club schedule. The program is geared to accommodate an athlete’s schedule to avoid conflict as much as possible.

With a versatile format, we work to achieve the following goals:

  • Skill and Mechanic Improvement
  • Education of Hockey Concepts
  • Mental and Cognitive Training
  • Teaching Consistency
  • Repetition

Players are organized by groups. A clinic (8) is offered once per month. The clinics are a “development hockey habits” environment. Winter Extension gives every player time to focus on individual skills and mechanics that are not typically developed in their team practices. Clinics offer every player the opportunity for accelerated development and support from the entire coaching staff in achieving their short and long term goals in hockey.

The locations of the skates vary month to month. The ice slots will be no less then 1 hour and 30 minutes.  Dates and locations for monthly clinics are announced via Weekly Email Updates, and Social Media.

Winter Extension Tuition is $750.00 per season (Aug-March)

Track 2 - Player Development Package

The Player Development Package is our "All-In" commitment to your athlete's complete development.  

Hiring a professional to mentor your athlete's development is a big decision. When your athlete is ready to take the next step to further their hockey career, our Player Development Package can help navigate the process.   WLHD ensures both the athlete and the family are prepared for the steps ahead.  The Player development package creates a custom tailored plan specific to your athlete's goals and development needs.  No two athletes are the same in their hockey maturation process.

The difference with the WLHD group is we come alongside the athlete and family to build a unique, climactic, and decisive plan around the interests, attitudes, and values of the athlete's existing game.  We are not a quick fix.  We provide ongoing support from an outside perspective that brings a powerful mix of accountability and commitment.
