APRIL 2017 – Xtreme Hockey is practice gone wild.

There is a theory that 75 percent of hockey comes down to one-on-one battles. The other hockey elements — skating, stick-handling, passing and shooting—are important, but none of those matter if you do not win the individual battle for the puck.

That’s the premise that has spawned a new Spring program at the Kansas City Ice Center called “Spring Xtreme Hockey.” It is an 11-week program that will work on the individual skills of players from the U-8 through the U-14 levels.
