What Conroy Hockey Do?
I offer a service that teaches Men, Women and Children how to simply play better Hockey.
My focus is on Skills and Effort and Discipline.
Since 2007 I have taught or coached over 2000 children in Chestermere and the surrounding areas in Hockey, Floor Hockey and Baseball. Kids have travelled well over 1 hours each way to skate with me and all find my camps to offer excellent value. So far I have taught up to 4 different kids from the same family and offer discounts for multiple kids (don't you wish would do that?)
I teach skills, work ethic and good manners!
We raise the bar, we challenge them, encourage them, push them and they LOVE IT. If your son or daughter works hard I guarantee that they will improve and go up at least 1 level next year. I love coaching the kids, I care about them allot and always do my best for them on and off the ice. I do my best to help the kids and will always tell you what I see if you are interested to know.
I teach kids aged 3 to 53 and simply put we will make them better and we will do our best to teach them that: Sweating and working hard is FUN!
Based on all of the feedback over the years I know I am fair and my costs are on the low end. When considering the costs of my Programs, please consider this, a Hockey "School" is anywhere from $ 450 - 800.00 and you get about 10 - 15 hours of ice time in a 5 - 6 day span and the focus is usually on a "STAR" who first priority is to ensure your child likes him and not necessarily how to impart skills and good manners. And I guarantee you he won't be in the rink much this year!
For far LESS money I provide up to 22 + hours of ice time. For those that have been with me for years now you know you always get more ice time than you pay for. And you know I will push the kids and I am a pretty strict coach.
My focus is on Teaching your child the skills needed for him or her to be successful. Our practices are varied, disciplined and focused to varying degrees based on the age of the children being taught.
Our focus/discipline of course increases with the older kids and with the younger kids we focus more on smiles of course. If they are not having fun what is the point? I do enjoy playing with the kids I wished I had started 20 years ago.
A typical practice includes 3 - 5% of the time spent warming up, 10 - 15% spent on group drills, 70% spent on drills, typically 3 drills per session done 2 times, this improves learning and retention and the remainder spent in a game focused on the skills we are learning.
I have analyzed my practices and find the kids are moving 30 - 35 minutes per hour, compared to a typical 15 - 20 minutes for an average Minor Hockey Practice, meaning they are 2 times more active in my practices, therefore learning 2 times more. We do not spend allot of time talking on the ice, we spend time DOING!
As I get to know you kids, their characters and their capabilities, I will push them if I think they need it and can handle it. All I ask is that they work hard and try their Hardest! If I can teach them that hard work is fun and worthwhile then I will have succeeded.
My drills are constantly evolving and I learn from some of the best EX pros and juniors as I spend 10 - 15 hours a week referring some very, very good hockey in Calgary.
