How would you describe yourself as a player?

How can you improve as a player?

Who do you model yourself after?

Do you have the confidence to fall down?…….to fail?

Do you believe you can achieve another level of speed?

These are questions I present to players. It is my passion to work with highly motivated athletes who have a desire to improve.

The Stevens Pro Skating & Skill Development Clinic will answer those questions and provide a guideline for players.

I believe a lot of players do not understand or do not know what they can do to improve their skills or what they should be working on to achieve their goals. They are told to simply work hard.  It is not enough to work hard.  They must train in an intelligent way.

I have wanted to do this clinic for years.  It has been my goal to offer the best in skating instruction, puck skills, and the ability to understand the game with a focus on transferring practice skills to game performance.

The program will emphasize proper skating & skill technique as they apply to forwards and defensemen in the game of hockey. This clinic, with the use of video, goal setting, and a positive learning environment will help players understand the skills and the little details that make good players great.

This is a program for serious hockey players and is not a learn to skate program. All sessions will be high tempo, but allow each player to be challenged and develop at their own individual pace.

“Troy Stevens is truly one of the best technical skaters I’ve been on the ice with, rivaling guys like Sidney Crosby & Matt Duchene. He has a special talent for breaking down movements & teaching you how to become not only a better skater but a better all around hockey player. I highly recommend working with Troy to anyone looking to take their game to the next level.”
T.J. Galiardi, NHL - Winnipeg Jets
“Troy Stevens is an excellent skating coach! He has transformed my skating ability and enabled me to compete at a professional level. Troy’s attention to detail, expertise, and professionalism are second to none! I would recommend Troy to anyone who wants to improve their skating and overall game on the ice!”
Tyler Ruegsegger, AHL - Abbotsford Heat
“Working with Troy has helped me to refine my skating and enhance my game.  Troy has helped me quicken my foot work and develop a more efficient, powerful stride.  His hockey insight and coaching have also allowed me to improve my stick handling, puck control, and maneuvering in tight spaces and to increase my offensive opportunities.  Strong skating and skill fundamentals have given me the ability to improve in all areas of hockey and allowed me to progress and play at a highly competitive level.”
Michael Sit, 2012 National Champion - Boston College
