Hockey is a skill dependent sport. The best way to acquire skills like good skating technique, strong puck skills, and passing is through repetition and training. With the season now underway we wanted to provide a list of skills providers that LBYH endorses in the event that players and families are interested in additional training. The following skills/training sessions and their providers are separate from LBYH and questions should be directed to those providers.
Here is a list of local hockey skills providers (listed in alphabetical order) that LBYH endorses. We will continue to post additional skills and camps/clinics offerings as the season progresses.

The philosophy of Fusion Hockey is to refine and improve player fundamentals in the three essential S’s of skating, shooting and stickhandling.
The game of hockey has changed dramatically over the past 20 years from a rugged, dump and chase style to a game dominated by speed, skill, and agility. Being able to make plays using high-end edge work, change of pace and direction are all key factors to success in today's game. While skating has always been, and always will be the central focus of the game, today, puck possession is equally important.
At Fusion Hockey we teach the necessary skills, ranging from stick handling, body positioning, and puck protection techniques, to improve puck possession skills helping players eave a bigger imprint on the game.
