TRAIN BETTER * PLAY BETTER

What does it really take to become a great hockey player? While there may be varying answers to this question, some things cannot be disputed. Elite level skating and puck handling are now baseline skills in today’s game which is why NewEdge Hockey Development Academy created the SSC (SKATING * SKILLS * COMPETE) Development Model.

 

Like great hockey players, the SSC Development Model is always getting better! We do not sit idle and believe we have it all figured out. We, as training professionals develop, research, study, learn, and improve every single day. We are very fortunate to have a network of over 50 NHL, AHL, Euro, and NCAA D1, coaches, trainers, and scouts from which we continue our hockey development education.

 

Regardless if you are new to the game or play in the NHL (like multiple NEHDA clients) NewEdge Hockey’s proprietary SSC Development Model is designed to help you get better. The days of traditional "power skating" teaching and doing "drills" are all but gone! Today's best players train with "performance skating" and "play hockey" while training!
