Pinnacle = Passion, Pride, & Power!

This unique and dynamic skating and skill development program has been developed by Fred Jack, along with associate coaches, teachers and players who love, experienced high levels of success and continue to succeed in the game of hockey. The program teaches and emphasizes proper technique, form, speed and skill as they apply to the great game. All camps will provide and implement a positive and productive learning environment for the participants to gain maximum benefits.

Too many times skills are taught by demonstrating the end result. When students fall short of achieving them they do not know why. There are basic building blocks to learning all skills. With better understanding and a clear knowledgeable instruction they are able to accelerate their learning and develop their skills to a new plateau.

Key Components of Pinnacle Hockey’s Lessons

First Step Speed
