Hi Folks,

Puckhandlers is hosting a comprehensive Inline Hockey School during the July school holidays. Some of Australia’s best players and coaches will be making guest appearances and offering their services to the players enrolled. Specialist coaches will be teaching goal scoring, offensive strategy, defensive zone coverage, power skating and goaltending. All schools will include six hours of rink time as well as two hours of dryland training and classroom theory. Don’t miss out!

The schools come highly recommended for all those keen to improve their individual skills and gain a clearer understanding of the game of hockey. Graduates of the Puckhandlers hockey schools read like a ‘who’s who’ of Australian ice and inline junior hockey today. This list includes the captain of EVERY junior national team sent away last year! Lliam Webster (2003 Captain Australian U18 Ice Gold medal winning team), Chris Leetham (Australia Senior Ice Team Goalie aged 18), Joey Hughes (Australian Senior Ice Team aged 17), Stuey Collins (Australian Inline Hockey Team aged 17), Peter Matus (Asst Captain Australian U18 Ice Gold Medal winning team), Matt Beatson (Australian Inline Hockey Team goalie aged 20), Jono DeBoos (Australian Inline Hockey Team aged 19), Wylie Hodder (Australian Inline Hockey Team goalie aged 20) , Chris Rodwell (U12 Australian Inline Captain 2002), Eugene Young (U14 Australian Inline Captain 2002), Timmy Borstener (U16 Australian Inline Captain 2002), Stuey Collins (U18 Australian Inline Captain 2002) just to name a few who have attended many Puckhandlers schools and have taken the skills learned to another level. Many, many more we could mention…
