JULY 15-26, 2024
An exciting partnership between OverSpeed Hockey, Hailey Ice, and Sun Valley Youth Hockey, this program brings top coaches from prep, junior, NCAA and pro hockey to Sun Valley to develop players both on and off the ice.
On-ice training (11.5 hours total during the week) will utilize our progressive approach to skating and skill dynamics to improve each player's ability during the week-long program. Each day will consist of a full session dedicated to our skating and skill development system with program directors Toby O'Brien and Matt Bertani. The second daily session will be conducted by our staff of elite-level coaches on the fundamentals of the game and team play. Specialized goaltending instruction is included.
A full off-ice fitness program will be implemented as well as video analysis of each player to assist in the learning process. Finally, families are welcome to participate in an educational segment about opportunities in the game.
Our coaching staff has included:
Toby O'Brien, program director
Matt Bertani, associate program director
Ryan McGill, assistant coach for the Vegas Golden Knights
Joe Battista, former VP for the Buffalo Sabres
