Welcome to the Top Gun Hockey Skills powered by MAP South Hockey.

This Program for Midgets each day will feature 3 on ice components: skating, puck skills, and competition/small area games. We will also cover checking and body contact/proper positioning throughout the program as it is important for players of all ages to be comfortable with the physical aspect of the game – both taking and receiving physical contact. The key to all of our training will be high repetition drills in order to build muscle memory and increase the speed and accuracy with which these skills are developed and performed.
