Our 3on3 plus development sessions are 50 minutes long. Skaters recieve 15 minutes of power skating warm up plus 20 minutes of pucks and hockey drills. The other 20 minutes is used for 3on3 scrimmage. Teams can change weekly giving everyone the opportunity to play with each other. Our sessions are focused on fun and development.
